Killing Eve

Don’t mess with Villanelle. Or Eve Polastri, for that matter. The BAFTA nominees have been announced, and the BBC’s super-sharp spy thriller Killing Eve has bagged a major 14 nominations – including nods for its incredible leading duo Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer. The show has also bagged a Drama Series nod, supporting nominations for Fiona Shaw and Kim Bosnia, plus directing, editing, production design, sound and more in the BAFTA TV Craft Awards. Closely behind Killing Eve is A Very English Scandal with 12 overall nominations, including Mini-Series, Hugh Grant for Leading Actor, and Ben Whishaw for Supporting Actor. BBC smash Bodyguard also fared well, though Richard Madden missed out on an acting nomination, with further recognition for Save Me, Patrick Melrose, Kiri, and Sally4Ever.

The prizes will all be handed out at the ceremony which takes place on 12 May at the Royal Festival Hall on London’s southbank. Read the BAFTA TV nominations below.
