BAFTA Television Awards 2018 – as it happens
The red carpet’s been rolled out, the champagne is on hand – it can only mean one thing… Yup, it’s the British Academy Television Awards, hosted by Sue Perkins. And RadioTimes.com are behind-the-scenes at London’s Festival Hall to report on everything that happens, from interviews on the red carpet to gossip from backstage to news of the night’s biggest winners, as they’re announced. Advertisement The ceremony starts at 7pm – and BBC1 will broadcast highlights from 8pm – but for minute-by-minute coverage on the evening’s headlines stay tuned with our live blog. It’s the only place to be. 19.06: Genuinely too many good jokes for me to write! Fair play, Sue. Now we’re watching a little round-up of the year’s TV. 19.05: Namechecks Line of Duty, and speculates a few people here may have been doing a few “lines of duty” before the ceremony. Doubt that’ll make the edit – or the three f-words she just dropped to talking about The End of the F-ing World. 19.02: MASSIVE cheer for Jodie Whittaker in the room when Sue introduces her. “If this year had taught us anything, if anyone’s got experience fighting off grotesque monsters, it’s an actress.” I’m running out of WEEEYYYS guys. My WEEEEY supply is Wey-ning. 19.01: She says the set sums up the TV industry – which is glitzy, but also “two-faced” thanks to the giant Baftas. So far, Sue is doing a terrific job. Even though she slagged off Love Island. 18.59: Sue Perkins has been welcomed on stage by the Scots Guards! “Typical – ten men blowing their own trumpets before a woman even opens her mouth.” Weeeeey! “I’m Sue Perkins – you might know me from LEAVING some of the most successful shows on television.” Double WEEEEEY. She also hints at the gender pay gap. 18.57: OK, this is definitely veering into drinking game territory now. 18.55: Hilariously, Bafta have hired Iain Stirling to bring his Love Island voiceover stylings to tonight’s awards. This is already 10x better than any of the “gags” at the film Baftas earlier this year. 18.53: The celebs are getting an introduction to the awards from a Bafta chairperson, Jane Lush. Sadly, I have no jokes or wordplay to offer about this fact. 18.50: We’ve managed to dig up a bit more info about that “special Strictly moment” Claudia Winkleman promised us earlier. Apparently, and some point during the festivities Claudia will come on stage, ask for the judges’ scores and then some famous faces in the audience will raise their own Strictly-style paddles. Almost as good as a nomination, isn’t it? 18.48: Claire Foy has been chatting to BBC news on the red carpet, and says that filming the Crown was “such an adventure.” But sadly, she’s too busy to enjoy the nuptials of her fictional grandson Prince Harry to Meghan Markle next weekend… “I’m going to a theatre matinee that day! But of course I’ll watch the highlights,” she said. No word yet from Buckingham Palace about this brutal snub. 18.40: But before all that – we’ve been chatting to Jason Watkins on the red carpet, and he’s given us some more information on that series three read-through for The Crown! 18.38: Anyway we’re through that now, and the ceremony itself is about to kick off in five minutes! That flew by, actually. 18.37: Even Ore’s red carpet shuffle has remarkable grace. 18.35: He’s really got those fans in a Lawther… 18.33: Mark Bonnar’s also here for Line of Duty, which has been slightly overlooked in previous years. Could tonight finally be its night? 18.32: OK, This Country’s Daisy-May Cooper just won the red carpet. 18.31: And he’s not the only Whoniversal citizen to present an award – Jodie Whittaker and Bradley Walsh will be handing out the gong for Best Drama Series, the first category tonight. 18.27: People of the internet, please attend carefully – because John Simm is in the house! John Simm at the 2018 TV Baftas He’s not here for his Master-full return to Doctor Who last year, though – he’s presenting the award for Best Supporting Actress. 18.25: The People Just Do Nothing/Kurupt FM crew joke that they all hate each other, and demanded more money for their final series, hence its move to BBC2. The cast of People Just Do Nothing at the TV Baftas 2018 Oh, you guys… 18.23: If The Crown takes home all the awards it’s expected to tonight as well, this’ll be a big day for fictional Netflix Royals and the people who make up stories about them. 18.22: Vanessa Kirby says that the Crown series three (with the all-new cast) had its first read-through today! Kirby says “Helena Bonham Carter sent me a really lovely picture, of her and Olivia Colman.” That’s what we call a successful royal succession. 18.20: Alternative third option: doing the Small Man in a Box voice. 18.19: Emma Willis is being made to play Snog, Marry Avoid. There is no consistency in these red carpet games!! What is the theme? Why is there a siren? 18.18: Roman Kemp just mispronounced a dragon name from Game of Thrones! Just WAIT ’til reddit hears about this. Fuming. 18.17: Let’s all meet under Greg Davies later, yeah? 18.15: Ore’s now talking about One Love Manchester, the concert held to commemorate the victims of the Manchester bombing attack which is nominated for Must-See Moment AND Live Event (I think). Could just win the moment prize given the event’s emotional significance. 18.13: Ore Oduba has reminded me that Roman Kemp is the Bafta interviewer working with Clara Amfo! Sorry Roman, I forgot your name for a moment there. 18.10: In case you were wondering, new Doctor Who companion Bradley Walsh is cutting it up on the red carpet with some other comedic chaps. 18.09: I think the presenter just said Jodie Foster was the new Doctor! That’d be a bit of a twist… 18.08: Sir Mo Farrah is now being quizzed on Bafta trivia – they seem to have given up on the David Attenborough impressions. Be interesting to see if that first one makes the TV broadcast… 18.05: Black Mirror’s Charlie Brooker says the show has predicted real-life events so often that “We’ll be in the documentary category next year!” Tonight series four episode Hang the DJ is nominated, along with actors Jimmi Simpson and Joe Cole. Georgina Campbell wuz robbed! 18.04: Could Vanessa Kirby have the Crown-ing glory tonight? We don’t know, and all the awkwardly shoehorned in puns won’t tell us. But the Best Supporting Actress nominee is certainly looking like royalty on the red carpet. 18.03: As noted earlier, Marcel Somerville is on the red carpet and tells RadioTimes.com’s Ellie Harrison he’s “still heartbroken” after his split with fellow Love Islander Gabby Allen. “We usually come to an event like this together and I’m here alone so that’s upsetting.” Of course, Marcel only has himself to blame for his single pringle status – he released a statement earlier this month, confirming the pair’s split and adding he “can’t really defend his actions as he knows he did wrong and will regret it forever.” Looks like his Little Book of Love didn’t come in so handy after all: “My book is redundant now”, he laughs. Oo-er. 18.02: Thandie Newton is here! She was in LA the other day for the Solo: A Star Wars story premiere, and now she’s zipped all the way back here to compete for the Best Actress award. What a (storm)trooper. Thandie Newton at the TV Baftas She’s also in Westworld tomorrow! Goodness me. According to her, TV is more interesting to act in than movies because there are more developed characters (so sorry, Star Wars! She’s still ours). 17.59: Broken’s Sean Bean (pronounced Shorn Born, obviously, or Seen Been if you’re nasty) is being interviewed and chatting about how he pushed to have Anna Friel in the critically-acclaimed drama with him. Wonder if he’ll say hi to any of the Game of Thrones people? 17.57: Outlander’s Sam Heughan is being a charming fellow, as ever, making a fan’s day on the red carpet before greeting his onscreen partner Catriona Balfe! 17.52: Jodie is now being interviewed in front of that Red Tardis! Jodie Whittaker at the Bafta TV awards She says they’ve halfway through filming the new Doctor Who series, and it’s been “exhilarating.” Though she’s also a little peeved that co-star Bradley Walsh has headed off to the ceremony without her… 17.49: Jodie Whittaker has vworped her way onto the red carpet, and the crowd are chanting her name! Doctor Who executives must be feeling good about their chances when the series returns this autumn. She’s accompanied by Tracey Parsons of the Dorset Rape Crisis Centre, who she worked with on the last series of Broadchurch, and is wearing a TimesUp pin. 17.44: Also Danny Miller from Emmerdale is giving us “the chats”. Confession time – I always mix him up with the murdered little boy from Broadchurch, Danny Latimer. Probably because the murderer was (five-year-old spoiler alert) Joe Miller. 17.43: No man is an island – and certainly not a Love Island. Ellie’s been chatting to Marcel Somerville on the red carpet! 17.41: Speaking of Strictly, let’s talk about everyone’s favourite subject come awards season – the SNUBS! We already mentioned a few of these early on, but here are a few of the higher-profile series with just one nomination or none at all: Strictly Come Dancing, Sherlock, The Great British Bake Off, Doctor Foster, Poldark, Call the Midwife, Broadchurch (only Julie Hesmondhalgh is nominated for Best Supporting Actor), Netflix’s Stranger Things and EastEnders. Also, in my estimation, best-show-on-TV Robot Wars has been conspicuously absent from awards chatter. Elitist snobbery (and viewer disinterest) at its height!! Of course, there are plenty of reasons stuff won’t be nominated – Broadchurch was on quite a while ago so has slightly slipped from the consciousness, as has Sherlock, while EastEnders hasn’t had a very good year – but there’ll still be some very disappointed fans. 17.35: Claudia Winkleman is being interviewed – slightly awkward, because Strictly was rather cruelly snubbed this year. She’s here to present an award and (apparently) “mount” the cast of Billions. Also a shout-out for Riverdale, which definitely has wilder storylines than any of the soaps on display here tonight. Apparently, though, we can expect a “lovely little Strictly moment” in tonight’s ceremony, whatever that is. Some sort of skit, maybe? 17.30: Jack Rowan from Born to Kill (Best Actor nominee, fact fans) just did a TERRIBLE David Attenborough impression, which is apparently something they’re going to ask a lot of the celebs to try on the red carpet tonight. Gird your loins. 17.29: Dec is only on his way now! Slowpoke. We’ve all been waiting… 17.28: Jodie herself is actually in attendance tonight, as Doctor Who is up for best TV moment as well, specifically for her unveiling as the new Doctor back in July. For my money, Who has a VERY good chance of taking that award home tonight – it’s the only award voted for by fans online, and Doctor Who fans are very well mobilised. Want to know who else is making an appearance at tonight’s ceremony? Believe it or not, we might be able to help you out with that… 17.23: Someone has pointed out that there’s a RED Tardis on the carpet, adorned with a 13 to pay tribute to Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor. No we’re wondering if the Time Lords made them with a range of colour options… 17.16: Hollyoaks cast point out an ex-member of their show won an Oscar a few months ago, namely Rachel Shenton (who wrote and starred in a short film called The Silent Child). After that, a Bafta or two should be a cinch. 17.13: Now Marcel off of Love Island is being interviewed! He’s here for the biggest TV moment award, voted for by the public, which includes the Love Island skype from Stormzy. He’s apparently a fan of Game of Thrones, aka another nominee in the biggest TV moments category AND my other live blog! Like Marcel, my loyalties are conflicted. 17.10: Journalist, author and screenwriter Caitlin Moran is currently on the red carpet chatting all things Love Island, and about the film being made of her book How to Build a Girl. Caitlin Moran at the 2018 TV Baftas This week she also interviewed Benedict Cumberbatch for Radio Times, so maybe I can call her “our own” Caitlin Moran as well? No? Answers on a postcard. 17.08: I think this magician is called Magical Bones? 17.06: By contrast, the red carpet arrivals are being greeted by a big-band arrangement of Shut Up and Dance With Me. Someone is also doing close-up card tricks on the red carpet feed. And we thought it’d just be the MAGIC of TV production on display tonight! (sorry). 17.05: Expect at some point tonight a rather spirited rendition of One from A Chorus Line (you know, the ONE….singular sensation, every little step she takes song) – in the media centre we’ve heard the band and choir practising it about 4 times.Maybe to introduce host Sue Perkins? So far, it’s still catchy! SO FAR. 17.02: Not long til the red carpet kicks off now, and Emmerdale’s Lisa Jane Riley is en route. 17:00: We’ve talked a lot about the frontrunners in tonight’s ceremony – but what about the series that didn’t get the chance to compete at all? Series like Doctor Foster and Inside No. 9 got no representation at all, while series like Broadchurch and Detectorists just got the odd acting nod. Radio Times TV Editor Alison Graham thinks she knows why – good old-fashioned snobbery… 16.50: Bafta have released their own self-deprecating Bingo card for the ceremony, which certainly saves me trying to think of anything funny to say for the next 10 minutes. Play along at home! Note: like us, they’re probably not allowed to encourage people to use this as a drinking game, because that’s IRRESPONSIBLE. 16.48: If, however, you WOULD rather watch on TV (the betrayal!), well, we’ve got a guide for how to do that as well. Aren’t we good to you? 16.39: If you want to make your own (potentially embarrassing) predictions, then here’s the full list of nominees tonight, which we’ll be updating with the winners throughout the night. 16.35: It’s anyone’s game in the awards tonight – which we’re supposed to call the Virgin TV British Academy Television Awards, though we may shorten that from time to time – with Netflix’s The Crown looking likely to scoop up a few of the big awards, especially in the acting categories and possibly even in best series. Other near-sure things? Ant and Dec (minus Ant at the moment) will probably pick up the Best Entertainment Programme, and Sean Bean looks likely to triumph in a slightly unusual Best Actor category this year. For a full look at the Bafta TV favourites, check out our rundown below. 16.17: Out on the red carpet for RadioTimes.com is our own Ellie Harrison (admittedly, it’d be weird if she didn’t work for us, but hey), who will be keeping us up to date with all the hot looks and hot takes provided by the Bafta celebrity guests. 16.14: We’ll be seeing the red carpet kick off properly about 5.00pm (aka 17.00 – I am using some inconsistent ways of timekeeping in this blog, I know) until 6.15, and then the ceremony will start at about 6.45. Anyone watching at home will have to wait until 8.00pm to see what happens but you – lucky old you! – will be well ahead of them, because you’re already reading our up-to-the-minute live blog. Truly, you have your finger on the pulse of popular culture. Well done. 16.08: It is a gorgeous (read – cloudy and slightly humid) spring day here on London’s scenic South Bank, where we’re ramping up for a night of gorgeous red-carpet looks, slightly overlong speeches and the controversial bit we’ll all still be talking about tomorrow morning. It wouldn’t be an awards do without one of those, right? 16.00pm: Hello telly fans, and welcome to our live coverage of the 2018 TV Baftas! My name’s Huw, and I’m here to take you through every twist and turn of tonight’s awards ceremony from the high-profile snubs and surprise winners to the awkward live moments that they sometimes cut out of the TV broadcast. Tonight the TV shows looking take home their own Bafta trophy include Line of Duty, Three Girls, This Country, Black Mirror and The Crown, and only an absolute fool would try to predict who’ll come out on top.

Saudi Film Council’s First Movie Will Be ‘Wadjda’ Director Haifaa Al-Mansour’s ‘The Perfect Candidate’ – Cannes
Saudi Arabia’s new national film organization the Saudi Film Council is supporting its first feature in the shape of Wadja director Haifaa Al-Mansour’s upcoming The Perfect Candidate. The movie will be produced by Al Mansour Productions in Saudi Arabia and Gerhard Meixner and Roman Paul of Razor Film Produktion in Berlin. The co-production was negotiated by UTA Independent Film Group which will handle sales in North America. The Match Factory will handle sales internationally. Al-Mansour will direct from a script she wrote with Brad Niemann. Filming is expected to start in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia by mid-September. The drama tells the story of a young female doctor who runs for municipal office while her father is off touring the country with the re-established Saudi National Band, which had been banned under law prohibiting public music performances. Al-Mansour said: “I believe that change must ultimately be sustained and driven by the people who are most in need of improvements and increased mobility in their daily lives. I want to help lead this positive change by telling a story that is full of hope and celebrates the power of resiliency and hard work. I want to encourage Saudi women to seize the moment, to take a chance, and break away from the system that for so long has held us back.” Al-Mansour made history in 2012 as the first female Saudi filmmaker with the award-winning Wadjda, notably the first film shot entirely in Saudi and the kingdom’s first submission to the Oscars. As we revealed last month, the filmmaker is in development with ShadowMachine on animation Miss Camel. She is one of three women on the new 13-member board of the General Authority for Culture (a parent organization to the Saudi Film Council, of which little is known about its structure) which will oversee cultural and artistic development in Saudi Arabia. If it seems strange that the same board Al-Mansour was just appointed to is also overseeing her next movie, it should be remembered that she is the first and only internationally recognized filmmaker to come out of the country. Following the success of Wadjda, Al-Mansour shot two other features: Mary Shelley, based on the late Frankenstein author, and Nappily Ever After, based on the book by Trisha R. Thomas. A first and large Saudi delegation is in Cannes — the Saudi Pavilion is hosting 12 shorts from the country — as the latest sign of the kingdom’s growing movie ambitions. The country is opening its first public cinemas this year and has big plans for entertainment industry growth. Meanwhile, investments are underway between the kingdom and Hollywood. The Sovereign Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia is has been negotiating a deal to acquire 5%-10% of Endeavor for $400m. Al-Mansour is repped by UTA, Anonymous Content and Loeb & Loeb.
