If you thought the Oscars meant the end of award season for the year you would be mistaken. More TV shows are set to get golden statues in June after the BAFTA announced its TV nominees. These awards are separate from the BAFTA film awards which happened in April.

So which British heavy hitters got nominations this time?

Naturally, fan favourite The Crown picked up 10 nominations and new shows like Small Axe, I May Destroy You and Normal People received plenty of attention.

The full ceremony will occur on June 6, but until then here are all the major BAFTA TV nominees and where you can watch them before the big event.
