‘Penny Dreadful’ Leads Nominations for BAFTA Television Craft Awards

LONDON — Psychological thriller “Penny Dreadful” leads the race for BAFTA’s Television Craft Awards with five nominations.

There are four nominations each for “The Honorable Woman,” starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, and documentary “Life & Death Row,” while “Strictly Come Dancing,” “Peaky Blinders” and “Da Vinci’s Demons” each received three nominations.

In the week that James Corden made his bow on “The Late Late Show” in the U.S., he and Mathew Baynton picked up a BAFTA nomination in the comedy writer category for “The Wrong Mans.”

Among free-TV networks, BBC led the chart with 46 nominations, while Channel 4 had 13, and ITV had 10, while pay TV operator Sky had six.

There were two nominations for “Ripper Street,” marking the first BAFTA nominations for a program shown exclusively on Amazon’s streaming platform, Prime Instant Video.

Vision mixer Hilary Briegel will receive the BAFTA Special Award at the ceremony, which will be held on April 26 at The Brewery, London.
