The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced the first winners of its annual BAFTA Television Awards. The list of the winners of "technical" awards is published on the website of the film awards.
The BAFTA TV Awards ceremony was supposed to take place this spring, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was postponed and is being held online.
Thus, the BAFTA TV craft Awards triumphant was the leader in the number of nominations (14) - the TV series of the TV channel "Chernobyl". The show received seven awards at once, including Best Director (Johan Renck), Original Music (Hildur Gudnadottir), Set and Costume Design, Cinematography, Editing, and Sound.
Several statuettes went to "Dark Principles" and "Peaky Blinders". The prize for the script went to the author of "Descendants" Jesse Armstrong.
Note that traditionally "craft" awards for work in TV series are presented a few weeks before the main ceremony - this year it will be held on July 31 in a remote format. The nominees have been named earlier.
As we reported before, Johan Renck, the director of HBO's Chernobyl TV miniseries, became the laureate of the DGA award. This was his first DGA Award nomination
