UPDATE: He won!! 🙂
All good wishes to Tom Hollander for the British Academy Television Award for Best Supporting Actor (‘BAFTA TV Awards’) later this month. He’s been nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as ‘Corky’ in The Night Manager which has surprised no-one. He was fantastic in it.
The event will take place from 4pm at the Royal Festival Hall on Sunday 14th May. You can buy tickets for the event (note that it has a 5 and a half hour run time!) or watch online, or via Facebook, YouTube, Twitter [details on keeping up with the event here].
Tom recently accepted an award at the Broadcasting Press Guild Television & Radio Awards Ceremony (on behalf of The Night Manager)…
Earlier this year there were Golden Globes nominations for three of the cast of The Night Manager (Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman – all of whom won) though no mention for Tom Hollander or Elizabeth Debicki. With the BAFTAs it’s been reversed and only Tom Hollander has been nominated from the cast.
While the ensemble cast was brilliant together and everyone is deserving of all awards going, we at Team Hollander towers are obviously getting the pom-poms and cheering routines ready for Mr Hollander 🙂
Tom’s previously been nominated for five BAFTA awards, for his work on Gracie and Rev. In 2015 he won a Royal Television Society (RTS) Award for his remarkable portrayal of Dylan Thomas in ‘A Poet in New York’.
Currently he’s number 5 in the movie review website Rotten Tomatoes’ poll of Top British Toms…
Other nominees for this year’s BAFTA TV Award for Best Supporting Actor are Daniel Mays (as Danny Waldron in Line of Duty), Jared Harris (as King George VI in The Crown) and John Lithgow (as Winston Churchill in The Crown). Best wishes to them too… but not as much as to Tom 🙂
