The 2024 nominations for the BAFTA TV awards have seen The Crown and Black Mirror emerge as frontrunners ahead of the May awards ceremony.

The nominations, which were announced today, saw The Crown scoop eight nominations, while Black Mirror episode Demon 79 (which stars Paapa Essiedu and Anjana Vasan) got seven.

This was followed by six nods each for BBC mega-hit Happy Valley (which finally concluded in January 2023), Gary Oldman show Slow Horses and The Sixth Commandment, which told the story of serial killer Ben Field.

Out of the 44 nominees in the performance categories, 17 have been nominated for the first time, including Bella Ramsey for The Last Of Us, Bridget Christie for her Channel 4 show The Change, David Tennant for Good Omens and Elizabeth Debicki for The Crown.

“I’m delighted to see so many first-time nominees, so much new and emerging talent and so many debut projects recognised today,” said BAFTA chair Sara Putt. “At a time when budgets are tight and creative risk-taking can feel ever riskier, we hope our awards can play a positive role in reinforcing the value of nurturing new talent and ideas.”
