Check out the full list of winners for BAFTA TV 2022

While many social media users have been criticising awards ceremonies after the Oscars debacle this year, many of these events are actually good handbooks for people trying to figure out what they missed out on. If you’re making a list of the excellent television programmes you didn’t watch last year, the 2022 BAFTA TV awards are here to help you out.

Featuring wins for Sean Bean and Jodie Comer among others, the BAFTA awards for television have highlighted some of the best TV shows of last year. Bean ended up winning the award for Best Leading Actor for his incredible work on Time where he starred as a criminal who is confronted with various moral dilemmas in prison.

Barry Jenkins also won the award for Best International Series for his incredible show The Underground Railroad which presented a vision of American slavery through the lens of magical realism. The TV winners that BAFTA selected this year will definitely make it to the top of many watchlists.
