Nominations announced for BAFTA Television Awards 2024

BAFTA has revealed its 2024 nominations for the BAFTA Television Awards…

A total of 118 programmes received nominations today celebrating the very best in television broadcast in 2023.

Jane Millichip, CEO of BAFTA:

“It is a real privilege to announce today’s nominations which recognise the most gripping, entertaining, challenging, funniest, most informative, highest quality, and most impactful TV programmes of 2023, as voted for by BAFTA members. More than 100 programmes across 12 broadcasters and streamers represent an extraordinary range of content.

“We are proud to showcase this incredible roster of talent at our Television Craft Awards on 28 April and our Television Awards with P&O Cruises on 12 May.  It is important that we celebrate the extraordinary craft and creativity of the broadcast sector, particularly during this challenging year for many people working in the industry.”

The ten programmes with the most nominations see eight for The Crown, seven for Demon 79 (Black Mirror), six for Happy Valley, Slow Horses and The Sixth Commandment. Five nominations for The Last of Us, The Long Shadow and Succession, four for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 and Once Upon a Time in Northern Ireland.

17 out of 44 nominees in the performance categories have received their first BAFTA Television Awards nomination, including Amit Shah, Bella Ramsey, Bridget Christie, David Tennant, Éanna Harwicke, Elizabeth Debicki, Hammed Animashaun, Hannah Waddingham, Harriet Walters, Harris Dickinson, Kane Robinson, Máiréad Tyers, Maween Rizwan, Nico Parker, Rob Beckett, Roisin Gallagher and Sofia Oxenham.

Two first-time nominees in the New Talent: Fiction category Kat Sadler (writer – Such Brave Girls) and Mawaan Rizwan (writer – Juice) are also named nominees across Writer Comedy, and Scripted Comedy for Such Brave Girls and Writer Comedy and Male Performance in a Comedy programme for Juice, with three nominations apiece.

Sara Putt, Chair of BAFTA:

“Water-cooler TV moments, brave documentaries which expand our world-view, and powerful real-life inspired dramas – these are just some of the BAFTA nominated TV programmes for audiences to watch. I’m delighted to see so many first-time nominees, so much new and emerging talent and so many debut projects recognised today.

“At a time when budgets are tight and creative risk-taking can feel ever riskier, we hope our awards can play a positive role in reinforcing the value of nurturing new talent and ideas, as well as holding a mirror up to stubborn industry inequities, particularly for talented female directors who are still significantly outnumbered by their male counterparts when it comes to awards submissions. The exceptional variety and quality of programmes nominated reflects the creative powerhouse that is the UK television industry, and it is an honour for BAFTA voters to watch and debate such brilliant TV. Congratulations to everyone nominated.”
