‘Wolf Hall’ Leads Nominations Race for BAFTA TV Craft Awards

'Fortitude,' 'Jonathan Strange,' 'London Spy' nab four nominations each

LONDON — “Wolf Hall” leads the race for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ Television Craft Awards, which honors the best behind-the-scenes talent working in U.K. television.

The historical drama, in which Mark Rylance plays the ambitious Thomas Cromwell during the reign of English king Henry VIII, leads the way with six nominations. It is nominated in the costume design, editing (fiction), make-up and hair design, photography and lighting (fiction), sound (fiction), and writer (drama) categories.

It is followed, with four nominations, by “Fortitude,” the Arctic-set psychological thriller, magical fantasy “Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell,” and espionage drama “London Spy.”

“The Sound of Music Live!,” adapted from the musical theater production and filmed live in a studio, received three nominations, as does “This Is England ’90,” the final chapter in Shane Meadows’ spin-off from his 2006 film of the same name.

A number of programs have two nominations each: “An Inspector Call,” “Charlie Hebdo: Three Days That Shook Paris,” “The Dresser,” “Doctor Foster,” “Great Barrier Reef with David Attenborough,” “Humans,” “The Hunt,” “Catastrophe,” “The Last Kingdom,” “Luther,” “The Murder Detectives” and “Poldark.”

This year’s ceremony will be held at the Brewery, London, on April 24, and will be hosted for the fifth time by Stephen Mangan. The BAFTA TV Awards nominations will be announced on March 30.
