The Queen beats ‘The Crown’ at the Bafta TV Awards
    2017-May-16  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ANT and Dec have dedicated their Bafta TV Award to the Queen after winning a prize for their presentation of her 90th birthday celebration event.

The duo won the best live event prize for fronting “The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration” on ITV last May.

The top honors had been expected to go to Netflix’s fictionalized royal drama “The Crown,” which led the nominations — but it missed out entirely.

“Tonight, the Queen has finally won a Bafta,” Dec said after the ceremony.

He told BBC News: “She’s never won a Bafta. She was given an honorary fellowship a few years ago but she’s never won a Bafta.”

Asked whether they really considered the Queen the recipient of the award, Ant replied: “Yes absolutely. It wasn’t our party, it was her party, her birthday.”

Dec added: “She put it on, it was in her garden at Windsor, it was round her gaff, so it’s her Bafta, she deserves it.

“We’re quite happy to take it round any time she wants it,” joked Ant. “She pops the kettle on, and we’ll pop round with a Bafta.”

The duo also won best entertainment program for their ITV show Ant and Dec’s “Saturday Night Takeaway.”

BBC One’s “Damilola: Our Loved Boy,” based on the death of Damilola Taylor, took home two of the night’s big prizes.

Accepting the best single drama prize, Damilola’s father, Richard Taylor, said he wanted to “send a strong appeal to young people on the street killing themselves.”

He said: “Parents are crying, others are crying, the surge of killing has gone up in the city of London, I beg you all to stop this unnecessary killing of innocent people.”

Wunmi Mosaku took home the best supporting actress award for her portrayal of Damilola’s mother, Gloria Taylor.

“Happy Valley” also won two prizes — best drama series and best leading actress for Sarah Lancashire.
