BAFTA nominations!!

Ah the BAFTAs!  I love BAFTA night.  All your favourite television actors and actresses together in one room.  Brilliant!  If you haven't seen the full list of nominations for this year you can have a look here.  I just wanted to tell you about the ones I'm most excited about and who I think should win on the night.

First up is Leading actor.

I personally want Benedict Cumberbatch to win for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock.  He is so dishy, and so lovely and such a good actor.  He was a guest with his mum on the French and Saunders Radio 2 show and it just made me love him even more, so I really hope he wins.

Next is Supporting Actor.

Again another nomination for Sherlock is Martin Freeman.  I first saw him playing a porn star in Love Actually and didn't know him very well, but then I say him in Nativity! and loved him.  The relationship between him and Benedict in Sherlock is brilliant.  I can't wait for another series.

Supporting Actress.

Miranda Hart has to win. She just has to! I adore her show Miranda and was so excited to see her in Call the Midwife.  Chummy was such a wonderful character and it was so Miranda-esque I can't believe it was based on a real person.  I am slightly worried that Maggie Smith (Downton Abbey) may have the edge, because Downton was watched and loved by so many people.  I never really got into it, but from what I did see, it was very good.

Next up is Female Performance in a Comedy Programme.

I REALLY want Jennifer Saunders to win.  AbFab is my utmost favourite programme and Jennifer is my favourite comedienne and actress and person in the world.  But... Olivia Colman in Twenty Twelve is hilarious. I've started saying sheeeit all the time now, and she really makes me laugh.  Ruth Jones as well in Stella is hilarious. I found the Welsh accent difficult to understand at first, but Ruth is brilliant.  Neither of them have anything on Jennifer though.  Go Jennifer, Go!

Comedy Programme.

I want the Comic Strip Presents to win for two reasons. Firstly Jennifer Saunders was in it (yay!) and secondly I haven't seen any of the other programmes!!

Finally the YouTube Audience Award.

For me there are three contenders; Fresh Meat, Sherlock and the Great British Bake Off.  I don't really know why Fresh Meat is one of my contenders because I have only watched one episode and it wasn't that great, BUT it has Jack Whitehall in it and he is a true babe, and I love him.  Sherlock, is well Sherlock, amazing, but... the Great British Bake Off.  Mel and Sue presenting was a good move by the BBC, they were perfect, and I learned so much from all the bakers.  So I voted for the Great British Bake Off, even though I think that Fresh Meat will win.  You can vote here so,
 do it, do it, do it!

The BAFTAs aren't actually on until the 27th May, but don't worry, I will remind you to watch them and in the meantime, I would love to know who you think should win,

Katie :)
