The annual BAFTA Television Awards 2024 was held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday, honouring the best of British and international contributions in television. Comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan were hosts at the ceremony, which was attended by the who's who of the television industry.
Though 'The Crown' had led the nominations with eight nods, the series, which is a fictionalised take on the British Royal family, failed to win a single award at the ceremony. However, BBC One original 'The Happy Valley', which was nominated for seven awards, won big at the event.
