The Arqiva British Academy Television Awards Are Announced Tonight



The winners of the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards, rewarding the very best in television broadcast on British screens last year, are announced tonight. Both Broadchurch and members of its cast are nominated, although David Tennant himself was not shortlisted for his performance.

Last year's double BAFTA winner Olivia Colman was shortlisted for Leading Actress for her role as local detective Ellie Miller. David Bradley was nominated as Best Supporting Actor for his role as Jack Marshall, the newsagent with a mysterious past. Finally, Broadchurch written by Chris Chibnall and produced by Kudos TV and Imaginary Friends for ITV, was nominated in the Drama Series category.
