Stars out for big night at the Baftas

The Best Drama award went to Peaky Blinders, which was one of the surprises of the night as most people expected Netflix's The Crown to walk away with award.

As the show got underway, Peaky Blinders picked up the first award, shortly followed by Murder In Successville. 'I just felt like the luckiest person in the world to get to play a character who was so colourful, vivid, courageous and strong, ' she said.

The Best Actor accolade was given to Sean Bean for Broken, Best Supporting Actress to Vanessa Kirby for The Crown and Supporting Actor to Brian F. O'Byrne for Little Boy Blue.

Up-and-coming actress Molly Windsor has beaten Hollywood heavyweights Claire Foy and Thandie Newton for the leading actress prize at the TV Baftas. "Soon maybe they will be here as well because I think they deserve to be", he said during his acceptance speech.

Casualty was awarded the BAFTA for Soap & Continuing Drama, a category that recognises exceptional talent in delivering long-running continuing dramas.

But it was the "nearly wons" that paint best the picture of streaming sites and these awards.

The award for factual series went to Ambulance, and Love Island won for reality or constructed factual.

The Handmaid's Tale was the victor in the category of global series. Detectorists' Toby Jones claimed Best Male Comedy Performance, as Daisy May Cooper took home the female equivalent for This Country, which was also named Best Scripted Comedy.

"To be recognized for one's work is always special, but to be recognized by BAFTA is truly an honor", commented North, who's also appeared in other major franchises like Destiny, Assassin's Creed, and Call of Duty.
