Apple officially announced today that three different series picked up nominations from this year’s BAFTA TV Awards. As Apple notes today in its announcement, this is the first time that anything from Apple TV+ has been nominated for a BAFTA TV Award, and it’s coming out strong in its debut.
The three series nominated this year are: Little America, Tiny World, and Earth At Night In Color.
- Little America picked up a nomination with this year’s event in the International series category
- Earth At Night In Color earned a nomination in the Sound: Factual category
- Tiny World picked up the nom from the Photography: Factual category
From today’s announcement, Apple highlights just how many awards Apple TV+ films, series, and documentaries have been nominated for (and won!) up to this point:
These nominations mark Apple’s BAFTA TV Awards debut and follows a string of accolades for Apple TV+ series and films, including Academy Award nominations, SAG Awards, Critics Choice Awards, Critics Choice Documentary Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards, NAACP Image Awards, a Peabody Award and more, earning 106 wins and 367 nominations in just under a year and a half.
As mentioned above, Apple TV+ saw two films earn nominations from BAFTA earlier this year. Wolfwalkers, which was also nominated for an Academy Award, and the Tom Hanks-starring World War II thriller Greyhound.
Each of these series nominated today are certainly worth checking out on Apple TV+. Especially Earth At Night In Color, which captures wildlife in its natural habitat, at night, in stunning clarity. You can check it out in the trailer just below.
If you’ve watched any of these, do you think they have a chance at winning in their respective categories?
