The British Academy Television Awards

Summary

Richard Ayoade hosts the annual ceremony celebrating the best of British and international TV programmes and talent, with the programme coming from the BBC's Television Centre in White City, west London. The Crown, I Hate Suzie, Gangs of London and Save Me Too are up for Best Drama Series, while other nominees include John Boyega, Josh O'Connor, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Graham Norton and Ant & Dec and the show features performances by Years & Years and Alexis Ffrench.

Review

Unlike last year, Bafta will see some semblance of normality infused into its 67th Television Awards ceremony. Although some nominees will inevitably be Zooming in, plenty of big stars should be sauntering down the red carpet.

The spotlight will be on the big-hitting dramas hoping to romp home with a clutch of awards, including Steve McQueen’s anthology Small Axe (nominated for six awards) and with four nods each The Crown and I May Destroy You. Michaela Coel, who wrote, created and starred in what became one of the most talked-about dramas of 2020, will be among those in attendance on the night, alongside fellow nominees Normal People’s Paul Mescal and Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer. 

Richard Ayoade is returning with his amusingly dry hosting schtick for the second consecutive year, while Olly Alexander, the Years & Years singer and star of Channel 4’s It’s a Sin, which will no doubt be up for a plethora of awards at next year’s Baftas, opens the show.
