BAFTA TV Awards 2017: nominees

The Crown dominates UK TV awards, while Hillsy lands his first nod.

Adam Hills has been nominated for his first BAFTA TV Award for The Last Leg, going up against the likes of Graham Norton and Michael McIntyre.

The Crown dominates the nominees including nods for Claire Foy and John Lithgow. Fleabag, Happy Valley and Damilola, Our Loved Boy all received three nominations.

But The Night Manager missed out on a Drama Series nod, while Victoria, The Missing and Poldark were snubbed entirely.
