Obviously I want Benedict Cumberbatch to win leading actor for Sherlock. Also pretty obviously, I want Andrew Scott (Jim Moriarty) to win supporting actor for Sherlock. Martin Freeman's performance in The Reichenbach Fall was outstanding but he won the Bafta last year, and Andrew Scott deserves it so much more for his performance in just about anything!

The TV BAFTAs will take place on 27 May at the Royal Festival Hall on the Southbank.

The other runners and riders I am backing are as follows:

Leading actress
Vicky McClure (This is England '88, Channel 4)

Entertainment performance
Alan Carr (Alan Carr Chatty Man, Channel 4)
Graham Norton (The Graham Norton Show, BBC1)

Male performance in a comedy programme
Tom Hollander (Rev, BBC2)

Mini series
This Is England '88 (Channel 4)

Soap and continuing drama
EastEnders (BBC1)

Factual series
The Choir: Military Wives (BBC2)

NT Live: Encore screenings of One Man, Two Guvnors

Cut and pasted from an email from the National Theatre:

One Man, Two Guvnors, by Richard Bean,
based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni with songs by Grant Olding

Encore Screenings across the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand

Due to popular demand there will be another chance to see the smash-hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors in cinemas across the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Following a sell out run at the National Theatre and in the West End and a successful opening on Broadway, National Theatre Live presents another chance to see this 'hilarious tour de farce'.
