Killing Eve has received an impressive four nominations for this year’s BAFTA TV Awards, including a Leading Actress nod for Jodie Comer.
Comer, who won the Leading Actress prize at last year’s BAFTA TV Awards, will compete against Glenda Jackson (Elizabeth Is Missing), Samantha Morton (I Am Kirsty), and Suranne Jones (Gentleman Jack) to make it two in a row.
Killing Eve‘s Dan Crinnion is nominated in the Best Editing: Fiction category; David Holmes and Keefus Cancia are recognized for their original music for the BBC America show; and Laurence Dorman is nominated for his production design.
On Twitter, the Liverpool film office congratulated Comer and her fellow Liverpudlian Jackson for their nominations.
Huge congratulations to the incredibly talented Merseyside Lead Actors leading the way in the #BAFTA TV nominations this morning! 👏
