  1. Great to see the utterly fantastic Benedict Cumberbatch finally getting his very long overdue BAFTA to add to his huge swag of trophies. Patrick Melrose was by far the best thing on television last year. Amazing performance from him and miles away from Sherlock. Seems like a really humble and well grounded guy with a strong family commitment – so good when nice as well as talented people win out. Would have been nice for Hugo Weaving to also win. Killing Eve and Jodie Comer also well deserved. Agree that none of the comedies that wonderful. Brits used to be so good at producing them but the best ones are now on US television (Veep, What We Do in the Shadows).

  2. Is there a chance for AACTA to take a lesson here? BAFTA are entirely competent and content to hold a separate ceremony for Film awards, and a separate ceremony for TV; (and Games for that matter).
