Big surprise with the nominations for the British Academy Television Awards: “The Crown” star Emma Corrin was not nominated.

With her role of Princess Diana (1961-1997) in “The Crown”, the previously unknown British actress Emma Corrin (25) made it to the top. She recently received the Golden Globe for best leading actress in a drama series – and was able to prevail against well-known colleagues such as Olivia Colman (47) or Sarah Paulson (46). At the British Academy Television Awards (BAFTA TV Awards), which will be presented on June 6, Corrin is not even nominated.

But she is not alone in this. Her “The Crown” colleagues Olivia Colman and Gillian Anderson (52) were also not suggested. On the other hand, Helena Bonham Carter (54) and Tobias Menzies (47), who made it into the nominations for the best female and male supporting actors, can look forward to it. Menzies plays the recently deceased Prince Philip (1921-2021) in the series. Josh O’Connor (30) is also in the running for the Best Actor Award. In total, “The Crown” has ten nominations.

This is the favorite

The favorite is not the Netflix series, but the film series “Small Ax” by Steve McQueen (51), which the British director directed for the BBC. This includes John Boyega (29) and Letitia Wright (27), who are each nominated in the main actor categories. The series can win up to 15 prizes.
