If you thought awards season was over, think again.

The Bafta Television Awards are due to take place on Sunday night (14 May) at the Royal Festival Hall in London. Comedy duo Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan will host the ceremony.

Stars including Daniel Radcliffe, Lesley Manville and Kate Winslet are up for acting awards this evening, with Ben Whishaw’s medical drama This is Going to Hurt and BBC’s police procedural The Responder leading the way as the shows with the most nominations.

The 2023 nominees were unveiled in March. You can find a list of nominated actors and TV shows here.

Among the other series nominated are Irish comedy Derry Girls, Sherwood, Apple TV’s Bad Sisters and the critically acclaimed Channel 4 show Somewhere Boy.

Notably missing from the line-up is Happy Valley, which was broadcast too late to be eligible for this year’s ceremony. Its star, Sarah Lancashire, however, has received a nod for her performance as Julia Child in Julia.

There is one subject in particular that they will be avoiding.

“I know that [with] JK Rowling and Harry Potter, there’s something’s going on with it, I don’t really know [what], though. All I know is: ‘Don’t mention JK Rowling or Harry Potter at all,’” he said.

“You just think, that’s a red zone, that’s going to cause problems, don’t mention that.”

THE BAFTA TV Awards will return to our screens tonight as stars of the small screen will gather at London’s Royal Festival Hall to discover this year’s winners.

The annual prestigious ceremony honours television’s finest and will take place tonight as hosts Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan prepare to host the event.
