THERE are just a few more days to go before the British Academy Television Awards will take place and and celebrate the best work to hit the small screen over the past year.
But when are the Bafta TV awards taking place and who's up for the main gongs? We have all the details below.
When are the Bafta TV Awards 2019?
The British Academy Television Awards will be held on Sunday May 12.
The Bafta TV Craft Awards ceremony is held a little bit earlier on April 28, 2019.
Bafta has held a separate ceremony ever since 1998 in order to fully focus on technical talent and those doing important work behind the scenes.
Categories for the Bafta TV awards include Best Entertainment Performance, Best Mini-Series and Best News Coverage.
While categories for the Craft Awards include make-up and hair design, special effects and costume design.
Who is hosting the Bafta TV Awards 2019?
Graham Norton will be hosting this year’s BAFTA TV Awards – 15 years after he first took on the role.
In a statement, the comedian and TV presenter said: "It has been almost 15 years since I first hosted the Television Awards and what a pleasure it is to be returning to host once again.
"2018 was a stand-out year for television and I look forward to seeing the brilliant talent in our industry rewarded."
