Killing Eve smashed BAFTA TV awards


The women-led BBC series about a MI5 agent becoming obsessed with an astute assassin has got three BAFTAs, including best actress for Jodie Comer who plays the aptly named villain, Villanelle.. What is significant is that BAFTA preferred an antagonist to a protagonist – Sandra Oh, who plays the main positive role in Killing Eve, was also nominated for Best Actress, but lost to her co-star. Killing Eve was nominated for a total 14 Bafta TV Awards including best drama series and best writer for Phoebe Waller-Bridge, also known for the critically-acclaimed series Fleabag. Waller-Bridge lost, but Fiona Shaw won an award for best supporting actress instead. Other LGBT+ winners of the night included A Very English Scandal, which was the second most-nominated show of the night. While Hugh Grant, who played Jeremy Thorpe, lost the best actor award to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Patrick Melrose, out actor Ben Wishaw took home the trophy for best supporting actor for his role as Norman Scott
