BAFTA TV Awards Winners: Benedict Cumberbatch Loses Out Again On Marvellous Night For Ant And Dec


Benedict Cumberbatch missed out again on getting a gong - after his sixth nomination! - at this year's BAFTA TV Awards, losing out in the Best Actor category to Jason Watkins, a surprise winner for 'The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies'.

It was a good night for the tale of the Bristol retired teacher who got caught up in a media witch hunt after the Bristol murder of Joanne Yeates. It won the gong for Best Mini-Series, too.

Two awards also went to true feel-good tale of Neil Baldwin, 'Marvellous' - winning Best Single Drama, and Best Supporting Actress for Gemma Jones.

In a surprise win, Georgina Campbell beat a strong field for Best Actress, for her role in BBC3 drama 'Murdered By My Boyfriend'. She won out over more established talents Keeley Hawes, Sarah Lancashire and Sheridan Smith.

Mackenzie Crook picked up his first BAFTA for gentle comedy 'The Detectorists', also starring Toby Jones. Stephen Rea collected Best Supporting Actor for his role of spy Hugh Hayden-Hoyle in 'The Honourable Woman'.

Ant and Dec somehow managed to look surprised, adding to their display cabinet with two more gongs, and host Graham Norton was rewarded with one, too. Newsman Jon Snow was given the BAFTA Fellowship, while tireless drama writer Jeff Pope and veteran writer, broadcaster and author Clive James were recognised with special Awards.
