It’s the 2019 TV Bafta awards and host Graham Norton will be presenting 26 categories; BBC’s Killing Eve series is up for more than half of these, with 14 nominations in total.
The thrilling MI5 drama will compete against BBC’s Bodyguard, another big hitter with audiences and bookies’ favourite.
But who else has been nominated and who will win? We find out the betting odds.
Who are the 2019 TV Baftas nominees, what are their odds and who will win?
BBC One has cause for celebration this year, as it dominates several categories including drama series and leading actress.
Killing Eve co-stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer are set to compete against each other, but could be snubbed on the glory if Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard) or Ruth Wilson (Mrs Wilson) win.
Despite the show’s success, the Bodyguard’s lead actor Richard Madden didn’t receive any nominations.
He was booted out of the lead actor category by Hugh Grant, who is currently favourite to win thanks to his performance in A Very Special Scandal, as well as Benedict Cumberbatch, Chance Perdomo and Lucian Msamarti.

‘Jodie Comer was outstanding as the assassin, Villanelle, in Killing Eve so it is easy to see why she tops the betting to be the leading actress, while we make Hugh Grant the favourite to scoop the leading actor for his role in A Very Special Scandal.’
