IT Crowd leads BAFTA TV nominations

By Madeline O’Connor

Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson and Chris O’Dowd are each nominated for a Bafta for their roles in Channel 4 comedy show The IT Crowd.

The show joins crime drama Southcliffe in leading this year’s Bafta TV nominations with four nods each.

ITV police drama Broadchurch is up for three Baftas, along with BBC One drama The Village.

Olivia Colman, who won two Baftas last year, has been nominated for her leading role in Broadchurch.

Bafta said Channel 4 had a total of 27 nominations – the most of any single channel this year.

The ceremony will be hosted by Graham Norton, who is also up for best entertainment performance for his BBC One chat show.

Four-part crime drama Southcliffe has been shortlisted for best mini-drama and its star Sean Harris is up for best leading actor while his co-stars Rory Kinnear and Shirley Henderson have been recognised in the best supporting actor and actress categories.

This year’s ceremony will be held on Sunday 18 May.
