Broadchurch is the Big Winner at the Bafta Awards

ITV towered over the BBC at the Bafta Awards this year and got top showing for the best murder mystery with Broadchurch and the best TV soap with Coronation Street. It was an exciting evening that produced many happy faces in the ITV crowd.

Baftas 2014

Crime drama Broadchurch came out top in tonight’s TV Baftas after it scooped three awards for its critically acclaimed debut series.

The ITV thriller won best drama while star Olivia Colman walked away with the best actress Bafta, her third.

Co-star David Bradley was named best supporting actor.

Accepting his award, he revealed his agent had sent him a full-size Bafta replica made out of chocolate at Christmas.

‘Now finally I can take it down from the mantelpiece and eat it,’ he said.

It was a good night for ITV, with Ant and Dec adding to their pile of awards with two for Saturday Night Takeaway.

Coronation Street won best soap, while the emotional docu-reality programme Long Lost Family scooped best feature.

Channel 4 received 27 nominations – the most of any channel – and celebrated a string of wins, including two for geek comedy The IT Crowd. Richard Ayoade won best male and co-star Katherine Parkinson best female for the sitcom’s one-off final episode last year.

In the audience vote, Doctor Who saw off Breaking Bad, but the US show came out top in the international category.
