Jude MacLaverty, Director of BAFTA Scotland, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be announcing our British Academy Scotland Award nominations, which highlight the phenomenal level of talent and creativity in the film, game and television industries within Scotland.

“We are also thrilled to welcome EE back as the Official Network Partner to the Awards this year and to be working in partnership with Screen Scotland on a brand new Audience Award.

“During these challenging times, TV has both entertained and informed the public, and it seems only fitting that the viewing public is given the chance to have their say.

“Although our Awards format is different this year, our passion for and commitment to recognising talent and celebrating achievement remains, and we are really looking forward to celebrating all of our nominees on 8 December.”

This year, BAFTA Scotland has announced a new Audience Award, in partnership with Screen Scotland.

The award will give the public the opportunity to vote for their favourite TV programme of the past year.

The Audience Award nominations are: Black and Scottish, Guilt, Murder Trial: The Disappearance of Margaret Fleming, The Nest, Outlander and River City.

The public vote is open until 5pm on November 18 on the BAFTA Scotland website.
