Last night the 2021 BAFTA TV Awards took place and as always it was a chance to celebrate the wonderful TV programmes that we’ve had on our screens over the last 12 months or so. While attendance wasn’t to its usual standard, it was still an action-packed night with plenty of awards handed out. Read on to check out our top pick of winners!

The 2021 BAFTA TV Award Winners!

The 67th BAFTA TV awards were held in London last night at Television Centre. Although it was a slightly different type of ceremony than we would normally expect, it was still full of remarkable nominations and winners from the British TV industry. Richard Ayoade hosted the star-studded awards, which had a number of attendees from the television world all following social distancing guidelines. Due to the pandemic, the usual red-carpet atmosphere with huge crowds couldn’t be recreated. However, for the first time ever, BAFTA allowed selected members of the public to attend the event in hologram form. Some even got to ask their chosen celebrity a question as they arrived to the event!

A handful of our productions were honoured at this year’s ceremony, with Aimee Lou Wood taking home the BAFTA for Female Performance in a Comedy Programme for her role in Sex Education. Other winners included Malachi Kirby for his performance in Small Axe and Save Me Too took home the award for Drama Series. Continue reading to find out our other top winners of the night!
