Previously labelled as the must-see moment, the BAFTA TV Awards 2023’s memorable moment nominations have been announced, with the likes of Heartstopper, Derry Girls and Stranger Things in the running this year.


Scooping many of the nominations this year are two of the BBC's standout dramas: The Responder and This Is Going to Hurt, which received six nominations each across various categories.

Meanwhile, Bad Sisters, The English, Slow Horses and The Crown have received five nods, and Daisy May Cooper’s Am I Being Unreasonable? and Big Boys bagged four.

A first-time nominee that may come as a surprise to many is Cillian Murphy, who has finally been nominated for his performance in Peaky Blinders as Tommy Shelby.

He is in the running for Best Lead Actor alongside This Is Going to Hurt's Ben Whishaw and The Responder's Martin Freeman, as well as Chaske Spencer for The English, Gary Oldman for Slow Horses and Taron Egerton for Black Bird. Similarly, Daniel Radcliffe has also been nominated for his first BAFTA TV award for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.
