      BAFTA TV Awards nominations were announced on Thursday in two categories- Television and Television Craft. According to reports, while the Television Craft Awards will be announced on Friday, July 17, and the British Academy Television Awards will be held on Friday July 31.

      Due to the ongoing pandemic, the awards show will be held virtually and all nominees have been asked to film their speeches. The live event of the show will be hosted by actor and filmmaker Richard Ayoade without a big audience. BAFTA chair Krishnendu Majumdar told Reuters TV, "All those details are being worked out at the moment because the social distancing rules are changing. What we can say at the moment is that there will be a show in a studio and we're working out the participants."
