Presenting All the Winners From the 2020 BAFTA Television Awards! A Night Of Surprises

BAFTA staged the industry’s biggest TV awards since the coronavirus pandemic swept the globe. And it’s an unprecedented edition for an unprecedented year. For the occasion, actors gathered around for a 90 minute virtual award ceremony, hosted by the brilliant Richard Ayoade. There was no red carpet or live audience and winners dialed in remotely to accept their prizes.

“Tonight, we reward various people while keeping the kind of distance from them that I’ve dreamed of my entire life,” joked host Richard Ayoade. “It is sad it has taken a pandemic to enforce the most basic parameters of personal space.”

The 2020 BAFTA’s was a night of surprises, as Fleabag was beaten for Best scripted comedy by Channel 4’s Stath Lets Flats, who also took home the award for Best comedy writer. While Jamie Demetriou won Best male performance in a comedy program. The End Of The F***ing World outmaneuvered The Crown for Best drama.

Other shocks included Fleabag creator, Phoebe Waller-Bridge losing to co-star Sian Clifford for the female performance in a comedy programme award. A tearful Clifford called her win “stupid, weird and surreal” while insisting the nominees in her category were “all winners.”
