BBC television receives 81 Bafta nominations



The Responder, created by Tony Schumacher, a former member of the BBC Writersroom Northern Voices group and This is Going to Hurt, by Adam Kay, lead the field with six nominations each. Hugo Blick’s The English and Daisy May Cooper’s Am I Being Unreasonable? each received four nominations while the first series of the hit BBC reality show The Traitors received nominations for best reality show, as well as best entertainment performance for host Claudia Winkleman. Elsewhere, the live event category includes nominations for both the Queen's Platinum Jubilee last June and the state funeral in September.

Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer, says: “I’m thrilled by the huge range of BAFTA nominations we have received this year, demonstrating that the BBC is at the top of its game, bringing audiences top class, genre defining programmes across the board.

Congratulations to all the hugely talented nominees recognised today, I wish them all the best on the night.”
