The interactive Black Mirror episode was recognised for its “ground-breaking form of storytelling” and is also nominated in the Best Online First/Streaming category.
The Circle was commended “for taking the next step in factual entertainment” and Cameroon: Anatomy of a Killing “for exposing ‘fake news’ claims.”
Hugh Grant, Benedict Cumberbatch, Keeley Hawes and Ruth Wilson lead the acting nominations, while BBC One’s Bodyguard, BBC Three/BBC America’s Killing Eve, Sky Atlantic/Showtime’s Patrick Melrose and ITV’s Vanity Fair compete for Best Drama Series.
