Will there be any repeat BAFTA winners in 2020?
When it comes to the 2020 BAFTA winners, it’s always interesting to look back and see what shows won big during the previous television season.
Killing Eve won for best drama series in 2019, but the show was not nominated this time around. Likewise, Jodie Comer won the award for best leading actress for Killing Eve last year. Comer is nominated again in 2020, so she has a chance to be a repeat winner.
Sandra Oh (Killing Eve), Ruth Wilson (Mrs. Wilson), and Keeley Hawes (The Bodyguard) were the other leading actress nominees a year ago. None of them have been nominated this time.
For the best leading actor, Benedict Cumberbatch won for Patrick Melrose in 2019, beating out Chance Perdomo from Killed By My Debt, Hugh Grant from A Very English Scandal, and Lucian Msamati from Kiri. None of those men were nominated again in 2020.
