From favourites to win to this year's snubs, here's everything to know...

It's that time of the year again, with the 2019 BAFTA TV awards in touching distance, falling this year on 12th May.

This week, the BAFTA TV award nominations were revealed, and it would be an understatement to say they proved divisive.

Killing Eve and A Very English Scandal are the current frontrunners, with Killing Eve boasting a whopping 14 nominations in total, and Keeley Hawes has emerged on top receiving nods for both her leading role in Bodyguard and her supporting role in Mrs Wilson.

Fans were surprised however to see that Richard Madden had been snubbed of a nomination for his leading role in Bodyguard, something that people saw as an oversight. We doubt he's too sad though, given the fact that the show is nominated in the Drama Series and Must See Moment categories!
