BAFTA TV Awards 2013 – Our complete guide to the runners and riders

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you’ll probably know that today is *fanfare* BAFTA day! As well as sending heat’s Lucie Cave and Boyd Hilton to the awards to interview the stars on the red carpet – which you can watch on our live stream this evening by clicking the banner above from 5pm – we’ve compiled a little guide to the runners and riders of this year’s awards and who we think will get the coveted BAFTA TV award in each category.

ENTERTAINMENT PERFORMANCE

Nominees:
Alan Carr - Alan Carr: Chatty Man
Ant and Dec - I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Sarah Millican - The Sarah Millican Show
Graham Norton - The Graham Norton Show
Who should win? Yes we know they win awards every year, but Ant & Dec really were funnier than ever on I’m A Celeb. They have to win!
Who will win? Ant & indeed Dec.

DRAMA SERIES

Nominees:
Last Tango in Halifax
Ripper Street
Scott and Bailey
Silk
Who should win? We’re massive fans of Scott & Bailey, TV’s most believable and engaging crime drama series.
Who will win? It may well be beaten by writer Sally Wainwright’s other big hit – Last Tango.

CONTINUING DRAMA

Nominees
Coronation Street
EastEnders
Emmerdale
Shameless
Who should win? Slightly weird to see Shameless in there against all the soaps, but Corrie is, if anything, even funnier.
Who will win? Another fine year for Street should get recognised.

INTERNATIONAL

Nominees:
The Bridge
Game of Thrones
Girls
Homeland
Who should win? A brilliant line-up, but we reckon it’s between the amazing Danish thriller The Bridge and Girls, the best comedy in years.
Who will win? Hopefully the already iconic Girls should triumph over the dramas.

FEATURES

Nominees:
Bank Of Dave
Grand Designs
The Great British Bake Off
Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs
Who should win? We only have eyes for the stonking last series of Bake Off which also drew a massive 7million audience for BBC2.
Who will win? Bake Off’s amazing success and quality should see it claim the prize.

REALITY AND CONSTRUCTED FACTUAL

Nominees:
The Audience
I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Made In Chelsea
The Young Apprentice
Who should win? I’m A Celeb had a decent year but we loved the last ever series of Young Apprentice and hope it gets recognised.
Who will win? One in the eye for the BBC who axed Young Apprentice.

SITUATION COMEDY

Nominees:
 Episodes
Hunderby
The Thick of It
Twenty Twelve
Who should win? Julia Davis’ sextraordinarily rude but somehow loveable period spoof Hunderby deserves all the awards it’s getting.
Who will win? A close one, but Hunderby might nick it from the great Twenty Twelve.

So that’s our definitive guide to who we think is in for an award this evening, make sure you stick with heatworld.com as Boyd and Lucie will be live on the red carpet from 5pm, ready to put your questions to the stars (tweet us your burning questions @heatworld using the hashtag #BAFTAtv) and we will be bringing you all the news and gossip from the winners and the afterparty first. Stay tuned!
