'Sherlock,' 'True Detective' Among BAFTA TV Award Winners

'Sherlock' (2010)

Cumberbatch stepped into the shoes of London's most famous detective in 2010 for this modern update airing on BBC.

Benedict Cumberbatch lost out for 'Sherlock' in the leading actor category for the third time.

With BAFTA having doled out its film awards in February, Sunday saw the British Academy welcome the second-biggest date on its calendar, the annual TV awards.

Held at London’s Theater Royal Drury Lane and presented by U.K. TV regular Graham Norton, the 2015 BAFTA TV awards celebrated the biggest names on the small screen.

Among the nominees this year were Benedict Cumberbatch, who was looking for his first award for Sherlock from three nominations. Olivia Colman – soon to be seen in Cannes competition title The Lobster – was another returnee, having already won best actress and best supporting actress awards for Broadchurch and The Accused, respectively.

BBC series Happy Valley, The Missing and Line of Duty each went in with three nominations, while Netflix had two in the international category, for Orange is the New Black and House of Cards.

As previously announced, producer and screenwriter Jeff Pope received a special award. Channel 4 news journalist Jon Snow also got BAFTA Fellowship at the event, while there was a tribute to author and broadcaster Clive James.
