Peaky Blinders and House Of The Dragon were among the shows to miss out as the nominations for the 2023 British Academy TV Awards were announced on Wednesday.
While many critically-acclaimed series were recognised with multiple nods, such as This Is Going To Hurt and The Responder, some of 2022’s most praised shows and performances did not feature.
The ceremony, which will be hosted by comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan, will take place on Sunday, May 14.
Peaky Blinders’ final series was mostly left out of the nominations, with only star Cillian Murphy landing a nod for Leading Actor for his final turn as Tommy Shelby.

Likewise, the Game Of Thrones prequel House Of The Dragon was not nominated in the International Series category, despite its vast budget and fan following.
Prime Video’s epic series Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power, was also snubbed from the same category.
While The Crown received a total of five nominations across the main TV and Craft categories, one star was noticeably snubbed.
Elizabeth Debicki, who was praised by critics for her performance as Princess Diana, missed out on a nod in either the Leading Actress or Supporting Actress category.
The show was also snubbed from the Drama Series category, though star Imelda Staunton did earn a Leading Actress nod.
Another show completely shut out of the nominations was Gentleman Jack, which returned for its long-anticipated second series last year.
Despite earning critical acclaim, and particular praise for Suranne Jones’ performance, the programme failed earn a single nomination, and HBO have since confirmed they will not be moving forward with a third season.
While some fans may also fear that Happy Valley was completely shut out, they need not fear, as the BBC drama’s third and final run won’t be eligible until the 2024 awards.

Nope! And even with six nominations, BBC’s This Is Going To Hurt missed out on one major nod, with Ambika Mod missing out for her heartbreaking turn as Shruti Acharya
Netflix’s Heartstopper also missed out on any major acting and series nominations, despite being lauded for its sweet depiction of LGBTQ+ romance in modern teen life.
However, it did receive one nomination, for Alice Oseman in Writing: Drama.
Coronation Street also missed out on a nomination in the Continuing Drama category, despite rivals Emmerdale and EastEnders being recognised.
And even with six nominations, BBC’s This Is Going To Hurt missed out on one major nod, with Ambika Mod missing out for her heartbreaking turn as Shruti Acharya.
The series, which is based on former NHS doctor Adam Kay’s memoir, received the most number of nominations, tied with fellow BBC series The Responder.
Apple TV+ hits Bad Sisters and Slow Horses, as well as Emily Blunt’s The English also received five nods each.
Slow Horses star Gary Oldman has also received his first BAFTA TV nomination
He will be competing against Ben Whishaw, Chaske Spencer, Cillian Murphy and Martin Freeman.
The Leading Actress race will see Kate Winslet go up against Imelda Staunton, Sarah Lancashire, Billie Piper and Maxine Peake.

Jane Millichip, CEO of BAFTA, said: ‘Huge congratulations to all our nominees. Today a record number of entries in television and craft resulted in 128 nominations, demonstrating fantastic strength and depth in programming and talent in 2022.’
Sara Putt, deputy chair of BAFTA and chair of BAFTA’s television committee, added: ‘Our awards encourage the public to talk about great TV and the craft and creativity that goes into creating the most talked-about TV of 2022.’
‘Production companies gave us topical and authentic stories that resonated with British audiences, from hard hitting non-scripted programming to strong-female led narratives. I am delighted to see that the interventions we put in place to improve female representation in the director and entertainment performance categories have had positive results.’
‘These nominations reflect some of those changes we are seeing today, and will continue to see in the future. The BAFTA Elevate and BAFTA Breakthrough talent schemes have also supported a number of first time nominees across categories – so if you haven’t seen some of these nominated programs, do watch them.’
The 2023 British Academy Television Awards will air on Sunday, May 14 at 7pm on BBC One and iPlayer.
