61st British Academy Television Awards Nominations are Announced

British Academy Television Awards 2015The British Academy Television Awards rewards the very best in Television broadcast on British screens during the preceding year.
On 8th April 2015, the nominations for the House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards were announced at a press conference hosted by television stars Freddie Fox and Amanda Abbington.
This year’s list sees an even spread of leaders, with Happy Valley, Marvellous, The Missing and Line Of Duty all sharing the ‘most-nominated’ top spot, with three nominations each.

Benedict Cumberbatch has been nominated for Leading Actor for his popular role in the BBC’s Sherlock, but is facing some stiff competition from fellow Leading Actor nominees James Nesbitt (for harrowing BBC drama The Missing), Toby Jones (Marvellous) and Jason Watkins (ITV’s The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies).

The Leading Actress nominees include Sheridan Smith, for her role as singer Cilla Black in ITV’s Cilla, Sarah Lancashire (Happy Valley), Keeley Hawes (Line of Duty) and Georgina Campbell (Murdered by My Boyfriend).
Happy Valley, Line of Duty, The Missing and Peaky Blinders have all been nominated for best drama series, while Cilla and The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies have received a nod for best mini-series, alongside Prey and Our World War.
The 61st British Academy Television Awards will take place on Sunday 10th May in London.
