It was actress Olivia Colman’s night at the Baftas yesterday as she picked up two acting awards. She won the supporting actress award for her role as the mother of a murdered son in Accused (Mo's Story) and won for female in a comedy for her role in Olympic satire Twenty Twelve.
After picking up the comedy award for Twenty Twelve she said "I'm not even the funniest one in our own programme." Speaking afterwards she said: "I'm a bit doomed now, I'm never going to work again."
Eastenders picked up the award for soap and continuing drama last night beating out rival Coronation Street while the show’s host Graham Norton won for the best Entertainment show.
The Best drama series was awarded to Last Tango In Halifax with star Anne Reid commenting "I am so happy the BBC has decided to do love stories about people who are over 35 because some of us do have quite interesting lives when we get to 70."
Made In Chelsea picked up the award for reality and constructed factual show while Steve Coogan won the award for best male in comedy for his latest turn as Alan Partridge in Welcome To The Places Of My Life.
Michael Palin was honoured last night with the Bafta Fellowship which was presented to him by fellow Monty Python star Terry Jones. Palin said his award was for "thoroughly enjoying myself for the last 48 years and I feel slightly guilty about that."
