BAFTA TV Awards 2020: HBO’s ‘Chernobyl’ Takes Best Miniseries, Complete Winners List

HBO's "Chernobyl"

The 2020 BAFTA TV Awards may not be the typical show the U.K. is used to, but the ceremony went off without a hitch.

Though a red carpet wasn’t possible because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the producers of the award show arranged for a few of the stars to be photographed in their attire from home. Per the BAFTA website, “The shoot was virtually connected, directed and delivered through a series of video calls and with the help of families and friends of the celebrities who took part.”
