Today BAFTA have released their full list of nominees for this years Television awards.

There are few surprises on the list but, as I predicted, Julie Walters is nominated for her portrayal of Mo Mowlam in Channel 4’s critically acclaimed Mo. She’s also nominated for A Short Stay In Switzerland but she’ll be going up against Helena Bonham Carter for her performance in Enid.

In the Continuing Drama (soaps) category, Emmerdale was absent from the list with big-hitters EastEnders and Coronation Street leading the way.

We don’t want to spoil you with the whole thing so here are the main categories and nominations. If you want the complete list then you can head on over to the official BAFTA site.
