'Broadchurch' Wins Big, 'Breaking Bad' Grabs One at 2014 BAFTA TV Awards
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has handed out the prizes in TV categories. In a ceremony held on Sunday, May 18 at London's Royal Festival Hall, "Broadchurch" came out as the big winner with a total of three gongs.
The Chris Chibnall-created crime drama, which will get its U.S. adaptation released on FOX in the fall, was named best drama series. It also helped leading actress Olivia Colman and supporting actor David Bradley win a trophy each.
Colman cried tears of joy when accepting the award, apologizing, "Sorry not cool." She said, "I'm so pleased everyone likes it," adding, "And David Tennant, standing opposite you is a joy and a treat."
ITV's "Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway" and Channel 4's "The IT Crowd" were other winners with multiple awards, taking home two nods apiece. AMC's "Breaking Bad", meanwhile, snagged one in International category.
