|Richard Armitage & Miranda Raison (Baftas 2009)|
I've always followed this event with curiosity and great expectations in the last few years hoping my favourite series and actors won. Though has never actually happened. it was worth it all the same since, at least, I got new pictures, videos and some times interviews of Richard Armitage taking part in the ceremony, though only to give the prize to someone else (on the left)
I'll have a look at the show on BBC1 tonight to support Dame Maggie Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch, hoping they get the recognition they deserve.
They've been nominated as Best Leading Actress and Best Leading Actor respectively for their roles as Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham in Downton Abbey (ITV 1) and Sherlock Holmes in BBC1 Sherlock.
Sherlock series 2 has been already honoured with three BAFTA TV Craft Awards: Sherlock won awards for best sound: fiction, best editing fiction and best writer (Steven Moffat for the wonderful A Scandal in Belgravia).

|Spooks series 10|
The series itself was sadly not nominated for best mini series (the category for which it was eligible) but it was possible to vote for Sherlock in the YouTube Audience Award (UK only).
Last but not least, I really hope Spooks wins in the Drama Series category. It has been nominated and it deserves to win as the acknowledgement of 10 seasons of high quality TV. Fingers crossed for Sir Harry and his unforgettable MI5 agents!
