BAFTA TV Awards: The Winners

Taking place for the tenth year running at the historic Royal Opera House in Covent Garden in London, the BAFTA TV Awards, though not as glitzy as their movie-themed counterparts are slightly informal and better craic for it. We’ve already had a gander at all the nominees and celebrities in their gorgeous gunas (we particularly loved Laura Whitmore’s chic, black Ralf Lauren jumpsuit) before it went on to the proceedings of announcing the 2016 winners. He missed out on a win, but Graham Norton did us proud with his suburb hosting duties (in his extra-sparkly suit), and we were also absolutely devo that Sharon Horgan lost out on her Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme nomination for the brilliant Catastrophewe love her and the series is fantastic. Next year Sharon, next year.
