Two of the most talked-about shows of last year will go head-to-head at tonight’s BAFTA TV Awards.
The ceremony, screened on BBC1 at 8pm, pits Bodyguard against Killing Eve in the Must-See Moment category.
With Bodyguard it’s for the bomb during the speech by Keeley Hawes’ Home Secretary Julia Montague.
The stabbing of Villanelle by Eve is also nominated, while Killing Eve is up for Drama Series and its stars, Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh, face off for Leading Actress.
But while Hawes is also up for that category, Scot Richard Madden was a surprising omission for Leading Actor.
The snub came despite Madden’s performance as security man David Budd earning him a Golden Globe and putting him in the running for a role in the latest Marvel epic, The Eternals.
Hugh Grant, who plays Jeremy Thorpe in A Very English Scandal, is tipped to pick up Leading Actor, ahead of Benedict Cumberbatch, whose Patrick Melrose mini-series was filmed in Glasgow.
Scots hopes are resting on Peter Mullan. He’s up for best male comedy performance for Mum.
