Bafta TV awards hit with technical issues forcing show to be delayed

Peaky Blinders scooped the top prize for Best Drama Series and the Best Comedy Entertainment Programme award was given to Murder in Successville.

Foy, 34, had been nominated for best actress for her role as the Queen in The Crown but lost out to Molly Windsor, 20, who won for Three Girls. Vanessa Kirby won Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Princess Margaret in the show.

Three Girls also won the TV BAFTA for best mini-series and writer Nicole Taylor also dedicated the prize to the "real three girls" and those who helped blow the whistle on the scandal, health worker Sara Rowbotham and former detective Maggie Oliver.

Acclaimed voice actor Nolan North is set to receive a special BAFTA award next month in recognition for his "outstanding contribution" to performance in video games, the organization has announced. Meanwhile, Sean Bean earned the Best Actor honour for Broken, and Brian F. O'Byrne picked up Best Supporting Actor for Little Boy Blue, based on the tragic death of 11-year-old Rhys Jones, who was fatally shot in Liverpool, England in 2007.

In the same vein, Fayemi congratulated Muslims in Ekiti State and Nigeria in general as they commence another season of Ramadan. Fasting in the month of Ramadan, one of the five pillars of Islam, is a compulsory religious obligation on all adult Muslims.

"Game of Thrones" could continue its BAFTA hot streak with its nomination for Must See Moment - its scene where Viserion is killed by the Night King snagged that nod.

It was a big night for other streaming favorites, too. The program had already won three BAFTAs back at the April 22 British Academy Television Craft Awards. Last year, Cuba Gooding Jr. accepted this award last year on behalf of his winning show, "The People vs O.J. Simpson".

American series "Big Little Lies" and "The Handmaid's Tale" are among nominees in the global category of these British awards. The ceremony was sponsored by the The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (better known as BAFTA) and hosted by Sue Perkins at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
