BAFTA TV Awards 2018: The Complete List of Winners

The British Academy Television Awards took place at London’s Royal Festival Hall on Sunday night. The ceremony was hosted for the second year by Sue Perkins. 

Five weeks after the nominations were announced, we finally got to know who the night’s biggest winners are…

Going into the night with more than any other series was Line of Duty but it was BBC’s Peaky Blinders that triumphed winning best drama series, beating Netflix’s The Crown. It wasn’t a good night for British monarchy drama as Claire Foy who portrays Queen Elizabeth II missed out for the second year in a row the prize for leading actress. It was Molly Windsor who took home the honor for her role in BBC’s Three Girls.

Sean Bean was named best leading actor for his role in BBC’s drama Broken and best-supporting actor went to Brian F. O’Byrne for Little Boy Blue.

Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale also won big across the Atlantic taking home the BAFTA for best international series, beating HBO’s hit mini-series Big Little Lies.

The night also included some major snubs with BBC’s Line of Duty and Netflix’s Black Mirror, both going in with three noms a piece, going home empty-handed.
