2017 BAFTA TV Awards

Nominations for the 2017 BAFTA TV Awards were announced on 11 April 2017. Nicola made it to the shortlist for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Last Tango in Halifax (Christmas Special). The other ladies in her category included :

  • WUNMI MOSAKU for Damilola, Our Loved Boy
  • SIOBHAN FINNERAN for Happy Valley and
  • VANESSA KIRBY for The Crown

    The awards were handed out in a ceremony held on 14 May 2017 at London’s Royal Festival Hall. Nicola didn’t win in her category. See the full list of winners HERE.

    To be eligible for the 2017 BAFTA TV Awards, a show should have been broadcast in the UK between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2016. This means that Unforgotten Series 2 was excluded from the 2017 nominations but will be eligible for the 2018 nominations. We have high hopes for Nicola in the 2018 BAFTA TV Awards.

    Sarah Lancashire won in her category, Best Leading Actress, for her work in Happy Valley Series 2. She is such a Nicola Walker fan. In her acceptance speech, she thanked Nicola even though Nicola was not in the cast for Happy Valley!


    You may recall that in her acceptance speech when she won Best Supporting Actress in 2014 for Last Tango in Halifax, Sarah thanked Nicola three times!

    Nicola’s plus one at the awards ceremony was her husband, Barnaby Kay. They may such a good looking couple!
