TV News: BAFTA TV 2019 Winners


Killing Eve reigns supreme at this year’s BAFTA TV awards, not only winning Best Drama, but with stars Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw each taking home their first BAFTA for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively. Now if they’d only hurry up and release Series 2 in the UK! Another first win tonight for Benedict Cumberbatch, who takes home Best Actor for Patrick Melrose, which also won Best Mini-series.

It’s coming home (the BAFTA for Sport that is) as England’s 2-0 victory against Sweden in the quarter finals of last year’s World Cup wins tonight, whilst the shocking assassination of Julia Montague in smash-hit Bodyguard was voted by you as Virgin Media’s Must See Moment. The only win of the night for Montague actress Keeley Hawes, who lost out in both of her acting categories – will she be back in Series 2 for revenge?
