This years BAFTA TV Awards nominations have been announced, with Benedict Cumberbatch, Ant and Dec and EastEnders all up for awards. The BAFTA's takes place on Sunday 10 May 2015.

Benedict Cumberbatch is up for the Leading Actor award thanks to his performance as Sherlock.

Benedict Cumberbatch


The Soap and Continuing Drama category sees Hollyoaks, EastEnders, Casualty and Coronation Street up for nomination. The drama of all those combined is overwhelming!

There's a strong Entertainment Performance category too, with Ant and Dec, Graham Norton, Claudia Winkleman and Leigh Francis (AKA

Keith Lemon) all nominated. Lucky it isn't up to us to pick to be honest, or there'd be a few trophies cut up and shared equally.

Ant and Dec


If you have a particular favourite and want to have your say, there's a chance to vote this year with the Radio Times Audience Award, which is voted for by members of the public. Nominees include EastEnders if you're still revelling in the 'who killed Lucy Beale?' drama, or if cake makes your heart beat a little faster, you can vote for The Great British Bake Off.
