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!

In addition, Sherlock has been nominated in the YouTube Audience Award category and we have all been voting frantically to try and ensure that Sherlock wins the Award this time round. The YouTube Audience Award is the only award voted for by the public.

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