Matt’s BAFTA Nom!

Massive congratulations to Doctor Who star Matt Smith who has received a BAFTA nomination for his starring time travelling role!

The TV BAFTA award nominations have been announced, and Smith lines up with Jim Broadbent (Any Human Heart, you may recall he was a Doctor in Curse of the Fatal Death), Daniel Rigby (Eric and Ernie) and old foe Benedictus Chumbawumba Benedict Cumberbatch (Steven Moffat’s Sherlock) to fight it out for the Leading Actor award.

Of course, they won’t actually be fighting…

The eagle-eyed among you will notice that David Tennant isn’t nominated, despite some interesting roles since leaving Doctor Who, notably Single Father.

Interestingly, the BBC features 49 nominations across its channels, while Channel 4 and its networks make 25 nominations. Sadly ITV1 scrape just eight nominations which given their recent attempts to make some notable drama is a shame. The Sky network, meanwhile, contributes six nominations.

That’s cash that comes out of your pocket, people, to pay Sky at a premium rate for making shows that are largely as filling as a McDonalds.

The 2011 British Academy Television Awards will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Sunday, May 22nd, and be broadcast on BBC One later that evening.
