The annual British award ceremony saw a number of Irish productions nominated
The BAFTA TV awards were hosted Sunday night in London and saw a number of Irish people and productions nominated.
Irish actress Fiona Shaw won in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in the hit show ‘Killing Eve.' It was Shaw's first-ever BAFTA nomination.
‘Killing Eve’ also took home the award for Best Drama series, as well as Best Lead Actress, which went to British actress Jodie Comer.
Irish actor Andrew Scott joined his ‘Fleabag’ co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge onstage to present the award for Best Mini-Series, which went to ‘Patrick Melrose.’
‘Derry Girls’ was nominated in the Best Scripted Comedy category, but British production ‘Sally4Ever’ took home the award.
Still, the cast of Derry Girls stunned on the red carpet:
‘Massacre at Ballymurphy’ was nominated in the Current Affairs category, but lost out to 'Myanmar’s Killing Fields.'
‘My Dad, the Peace Deal, and Me,’ a documentary about the death of one man’s father during The Troubles in Northern Ireland, lost out in the Single Documentary category.
