The film award season may be over for another year but for TV, it's only just beginning. The BAFTA TV awards took place tonight and it was a tough night for TV's biggest entertainment. Unlike other award ceremonies, the awards celebrate British television — which, depending on the choice of broadcast network for the States, is often overlooked at the more prestigious Emmy and Golden Globe awards.

While Netflix's The Crown may have been leading the nominations, it was beaten by the gripping BBC/Netflix drama . Check out all of the nominations and the winners below.
