'Line of Duty' Leads Nominations for 2021 TV Choice Awards

The BBC1 show has collected four nominations at the upcoming TV Choice Awards, vying for Best Drama Series against 'The Crown', 'Death in Paradise' and 'Unforgotten'.

AceShowbiz - "Line of Duty" has earned four nominations at this year's TV Choice Awards.

The crime series is up for the Best Drama Series gong as well as best actor and best actress nods for Adrian Dunbar, Martin Compston, and Vicky McClure. It's the most nominations for a drama series at the 2021 awards although "Coronation Street" was the most nominated soap - as it received five nods.

"Line of Duty" has some tough competition at the annual awards though, as it's up against "The Crown", "Unforgotten", and "Death in Paradise" in the drama series category, while Adrian and Martin will face competition from "Bridgerton" hunk Rege-Jean Page and Olly Alexander, who is up for his role in "It's a Sin", if they want to leave with the best actor prize.

Vicky, meanwhile, is up against "Bridgerton" 's Phoebe Dynevor, Olivia Colman for "The Crown", and Nicola Walker for "Unforgotten".

"Bridgerton" and "It's a Sin" are both nominated for the Best New Drama award alongside "The Queen's Gambit" and "All Creatures Great and Small" while Disney+ dramas "WandaVision" and "The Mandalorian" are up for Best Family Drama but will have to beat "Call the Midwife" and "Casualty" to claim the prize.
