In the build-up to the 10 May ceremony, Bafta have revealed their nominations for its Television
Awards which sees crime dramas, Happy Valley, Line Of Duty, and The Missing, leading the pack with three nods a piece.
All three programmes earned themselves a Drama Series nomination, whilst the trio of shows had their actors receive mentions too.
Sarah Lancashire receives her Lead Actress nomination for portraying Catherine Cawood in Happy Valley, a struggling sergeant who becomes involved in the all-too-personal case of finding out whose actions drove her daughter to suicide.
The Missing's James Nesbitt also got himself a nod for his part as a desperate father searching for his missing son, and Keeley Hawes gained a nomination for her part in Line Of Duty, reprising her role of DI Lindsay Denton in the show's second season, which aired last year.
Despite it not having been on the small screen since January 2014, Sherlock earns itself two nominations with Benedict Cumberbatch getting one for his performance in the programme and the other pitting the show off against the likes of Game Of Thrones and The Great British Bake Off for the title of Radio Times Audience Award (an accolade voted for by the general public). This nod marks Cumberbatch's third nomination for his role as the iconic detective.
Another actor used to getting BAFTA nominations over the years is Olivia Colman, who receives her fourth recognition with this year's awards; getting it this time round for her role in religious comedy, Rev.
Unsurprisingly, ITV residents Ant and Dec received two nominations; one for Saturday Night Takeaway in the Entertainment Programme pool, as well as one for the pair themselves for their Entertainment Performance.
Netflix proves its success yet again, as the internet streaming site has two of their original programmes make up the four nominations in the International category. Political drama House Of Cards and dark comedy Orange Is The New Black will go up against The Good Wife and Peaky Blinders for the award. The latter has in fact been acquired by Netflix recently, but is not officially a creation of the site, unlike the other two mentioned.
The fact that there were no nominations for BBC mini-series Wolf Hall may come as a surprise to some, considering its success earlier on this year. Similarly, comedy fans might be disappointed to see hugely popular reality show, Gogglebox absent from the list of nominations. On the other hand, popular series Poldark may have simply been too late to earn itself a nomination, given that it's currently in the middle of its first season now.
In addition to these snubs, most notably not present in any of the categories are both of Simon Cowell's broadcasts, The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent, shows in which normally feature in these awards.
