With the BAFTA TV awards now set to take place on 31st July (with no audience and new host Richard Ayoade), and the nominations due to be announced on 4 June, I will be doing some coverage beforehand looking at the shows that should be nominated and then predicting the shows that will, as well as then revealing the actual nominations when they are announced. This post will look at the things I think should be nominated in the major categories (there are many other categories and I will cover them when the nominations are announced).

An important thing to point out is that the eligibility for shows is that they have to have been aired in the UK from 1st January 2019-31st December 2019, so shows like Normal People won’t be eligible until next year and it will be season 2 of something like Killing Eve that is competition, even though season 3 of that show has now already finished airing in the UK.

BAFTA TV nominates 4 contenders in each category so I am matching that pattern, and I have also put the contender in bold that I think deserves to win each category.
