TV Baftas 2019: Bodyguard, Coronation Street And Queer Eye Battle Out For Must-See Moment

As ever, an eclectic mix of shows have received nominations for Must-See Moment.

Bafta has announced the nominations for this year’s TV moment of the year, and it’s a predictably mixed bag.

As has become customary, the Virgin Media Must-See Moment Award nominees are the first of this year’s TV Bafta contenders to be revealed, with shows as varied as Bodyguard, Coronation Street and Queer Eye all making the shortlist.

Unsurprisingly, the shock assassination of politician Julia Montague in Bodyguard has received a nomination for Bodyguard, while the emotional monologue from Gail Rodwell after Aidan Connor’s suicide in Coronation Street is also up for the award.

Doctor Who has also received a nod, for the scene in which Jodie Whittaker’s Time Lord character teams up with Rosa Parks to protect important historical moments from being erased.

Completing the shortlist is the tense showdown between Eve and Villanel in Killing Eve, Tom’s transformation in the first episode of Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot and the chaotic hedgehog rescue scene from the last ever instalment of Peter Kay’s Car Share.

Viewers can now vote for their favourite TV moment of last year on Virgin Media’s website, and will be able to do so until 1 May, while the rest of this year’s TV Bafta nominations will be announced on Thursday morning.

The 2019 TV Baftas will be taking place in London on Sunday 12 May, with Sue Perkins once again expected to return as host .

Joanna Lumley fronted the ceremony’s film counterpart last month, though unfortunately for her, her second time taking on presenting duties didn’t go down too well with viewers.
