Netflix Drama THE CROWN Tops 2017 BAFTA Television Awards; Full List”

Tom Hiddleston and nearly all his fellow cast members in The Night Manager have been overlooked at the Bafta Television Awards despite their victories at the Golden Globes in America past year.

John Lithgow and Jared Harris were each nominated for Best Supporting Actor, and Vanessa Kirby was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the show.

Claire Foy has been nominated for Leading Actress for her superb turn as Queen Elizabeth II in Peter Morgan's period drama, which centres on the monarch's Coronation and early reign from 1953.

After bagging a bunch of Golden Globes and Emmys, fans of The Night Manager were left feeling pretty peeved when the Bafta TV Award nominations were unveiled.

That could all be about to change, however, with the royal family detailing drama The Crown having just been nominated for a raft of awards.

The Crown isn't Netflix's only BAFTA nominee either, with sci-fi hit Stranger Things looking to take the honours in the worldwide category. This year, Netflix's Stranger Things will compete for the accolade of Best International Show with HBO's The Night Of, FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and Amazon's Transparent.

The poignant feature-length drama Damilola, Our Loved Boy - based on the tragic murder of 10-year-old Damilola Taylor in 2000 - followed with three nominations.

Foy's fellow contenders in the leading actress category include Happy Valley's Sarah Lancashire and Nikki Amuka-Bird, recognised for her work in the BBC's adaptation of Zadie Smith's NW.

The nominations were announced by actors Andrew Buchan and Michaela Coel at Bafta's headquarters on Tuesday morning.

The winners will be announced May 14 at what's expected to be a glittering ceremony at London's Royal Festival Hall, hosted for the first time by Great British Bake Off presenter Sue Perkins.
