The hit Netflix series - which centres on the reign of Queen Elizabeth - has received eight nominations in total, including nods for Leading Actor (Dominic West), Supporting Actor (Salim Daw), Supporting Actress (Elizabeth Debicki and Lesley Manville), Costume Design, Make-up and Hair Design, Sound, and Special, Visual and Graphic Effects.

Elsewhere, 'Demon 79' - the fifth and final episode of the sixth series of 'Black Mirror' - has received the second-most number of nominations, with seven in total.

The episode has been nominated for Female Performance In a Comedy (Gbemisola Ikumelo), Leading Actress (Anjana Vasan), Limited Drama, Costume Design, Photography and Lighting, Production Design, Scripted Casting, and Writer: Drama (Charlie Brooker).

'Happy Valley', 'Slow Horses' and 'The Sixth Commandment' have all received six nominations each, while 'The Last of Us', 'The Long Shadow' and 'Succession' have all been awarded five nominations.

Jane Millichip, the CEO of BAFTA, said: "It is a real privilege to announce today’s nominations which recognise the most gripping, entertaining, challenging, funniest, most informative, highest quality, and most impactful TV programmes of 2023, as voted for by BAFTA members.

"More than 100 programmes across 12 broadcasters and streamers represent an extraordinary range of content."

Sara Putt, the chair of BAFTA, has also hailed the list of nominees.

She said: "Water-cooler TV moments, brave documentaries which expand our world-view, and powerful real-life inspired dramas - these are just some of the BAFTA nominated TV programmes for audiences to watch. I’m delighted to see so many first-time nominees, so much new and emerging talent and so many debut projects recognised today.

"At a time when budgets are tight and creative risk-taking can feel ever riskier, we hope our awards can play a positive role in reinforcing the value of nurturing new talent and ideas, as well as holding a mirror up to stubborn industry inequities, particularly for talented female directors who are still significantly outnumbered by their male counterparts when it comes to awards submissions."

The BAFTA Television Craft Awards will take place on April 28.

Comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan will host the event, and the ceremony will be broadcast on BBC One and iPlayer in the UK on May 12.

The awards will also be broadcast in North America, the Nordics, South Africa and Australia on BritBox International, and in Australia and New Zealand on BBC Studios ANZ.
