BAFTA TV Nominations

Benedict Cumberbatch nominated for leading actor, while Watson and Moriarty will duke it out in the supporting actor category. Hmm, seems unfair to Martin Freeman, Moriarty is not in the show that much. But Andrew Scott was a very memorable Moriarty, so I can’t complain too much. Only one nomination for Downton Abbey, Maggie Smith for supporting actress. It’s tricky with Downton Abbey, I don’t think anyone would qualify as leading actor or leading actress, based on screentime or importance of storyline.  I’m tempted to say Mary-Matthew, but only because that’s the storyline I’m most invested in. No best drama series nomination for Sherlock or Downton Abbey, but Sherlock is nominated for YouTube audience award.  Spooks is nominated for best drama, but the final season is pretty boring and all over the place (really, Russia as the enemy again? The Cold War is over, guys!), I suspect it’s nominated partly because it’s the final season,
