Kate Winslet, Daniel Radcliffe and Taron Egerton have been nominated for the 2023 BAFTA Television Awards.

In addition, Radcliffe has been recognised in the Male Performance in a Comedy Programme category for playing ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.

This is Going to Hurt and The Responder came top in the nominations across the BAFTA Television Awards and BAFTA Television Craft Awards, with six each. Bad Sisters, The Crown, The English and Slow Horses received five nods each.
