Mersey misery at BAFTAS as stars miss out on gongs – but Cilla writer Jeff Pope picks up special award

 

There was Mersey misery at the TV BAFTAS as homegrown stars and shows missed out on the gongs – but there was a special award for the writer of hit drama Cilla.

The Liverpool-made Cilla Black biopic was beaten in the mini series category by The Lost Honour Of Christopher Jefferies, while lead actress Sheridan Smith lost out to Georgina Campbell for Leading Actress.

Marvellous beat city writer Jimmy McGovern’s Common to the Single Drama prize, while stars of The Great British Bake Off, including Wirral baker Paul Hollywood, saw the Features award go to Grand Designs.

Adeel Akhtar was nominated for best supporting actor for Channel 4 drama Utopia, which was filmed in Liverpool, but Stephen Rea picked up the honour for The Honourable Woman.

Peaky Blinders, which was filmed in Merseyside in 2012 and 2014, also missed out in the Drama Series category, which was awarded to Happy Valley.

But there was a BAFTA Special Award for Jeff Pope, the writer behind Cilla.

The ceremony saw Liverpool comedy star John Bishop hit back after Graham Norton made fun of his teeth, saying: “Can’t believe I’m getting stick from somebody who looks like Father Christmas and Louis Walsh’s lovechild.”

Channel 4 journalist Jon Snow, who was kicked out of Liverpool University for organising a demonstration against their investment in apartheid South Africa, received a BAFTA Fellowship.
