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)

The full list of all the awards and all the shortlisted nominees can be found here:

That best supporting actor category is a really tough call. I agree that Martin Freeman was outstanding in The Reichenbach Fall. But I also loved Joseph Mawle in Birdsong. I didn't see Stephen Rea in Shadow Line, but even with the other two, Andrew has seriously stiff competition. Pity that the two Sherlock actors have to be pitted against each other. There should've been a separate 'best actor as a criminal mastermind' or 'best actor in a non-supportive role' category. :-)

Benedict has stiff competition too against Dominic West and John Simm (I don't know the other contender) but I would love him to win for his superlative act as Sherlock. Fingers crossed!

I agree with all you say. I thought Benedict should have won last year. This year - difficult (I loved This is England).

I don't think Andrew will win; he did not have enough screen time. But I think he deserves to win a big award soon for the AMAZING backcatalogue of work that he has which I am only just discovering. The man is a genius!
