The Virgin TV BAFTA Television Awards nominations

10/04/2017TV

The British Academy Television Awards ceremony is always a reason to get excited, but we’re even more thrilled about this year’s BAFTA. After all, we’re sponsoring the event!

Being passionate about great television, from cutting-edge comedies to thought-provoking dramas, Virgin TV are thrilled to have forged a three-year partnership with BAFTA. Not only are we the proud sponsors, but we’ve also launched an exciting new award category: Virgin TV’s Must-See Moment.

This stands apart from all the others, because it’s the ONLY award which the great British public can vote for. This is our celebration of the cliff-hangers, revelations and guffaw-making moments that have had the nation talking and tweeting over the year.And you can vote for your favourite right here.

As for the rest of the award categories… here are the contenders vying to take home that iconic golden award when host Sue Perkins takes to London’s Royal Festival Hall on Sunday 14th May.
