No BAFTA love for Lake, Luther

There were plenty of awards handed out at the BAFTA Television Craft event in London earlier today, but none went to Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake or Neil Cross’ Luther.

Campion’s mini-series and the final small-screen outing for Cross’ creation went into the awards with three nominations apiece. The Sam Neill-starring Peaky Blinders had six nods on its own, enough to lead the pack ahead of much-praised Broadchurch.

Blinders converted two of its nominations into gongs.

Never mind the tea. Where's the Two Paddocks?

Among the awards for drama, several of the UK’s most-praised productions of 2013 came away with nothing. With the exception of writing awards, which are split between Drama and Comedy, the awards present only a ‘Fiction’ award in many categories. There’s no distinction between drama, comedy, series, mini-series or telemovies, which leads to a smaller number of awards than are on offer at plenty of other TV awards events.
