The BBC’s His Dark Materials is nominated for five awards, followed by Netflix’s The Crown with four.
Across both the Craft and British Academy Television Awards, Chernobyl leads with 14 nominations, again followed by The Crown with seven, and Fleabag and Girl/Haji with six each.
Blue Planet Live, ITV News’s coverage of the election, Glastonbury 2019 and Channel 5’s Operation Live are all nominated in the Live Event category.
ITV’s coverage of the Rugby World Cup is nominated in the Sport category alongside the Cricket World Cup Final produced by Sky Sports, and the BBC scores two nominations with its coverage of England v USA in the FIFA Women’s World Cup and Wimbledon’s Mens Final.
