BAFTA TV Awards fun facts

Julie Walters 2014 (cropped)
Mrs. Weasley for most wins.

• Actress Julie Walters (also known as Mrs. Weasley in the Harry Potter films) is the most successful recipient of the BAFTA TV Best Actress award with 7 nominations and four wins.

• Actor Harry Gabon (another Harry Potter alumnus who played Professor Dumbledore) holds the record for Best Actor with four wins at the BAFTA TV Awards.

• Coronation Street is the most successful soap opera in BAFTA TV history, having taken home 10 awards in total.

• One of Great Britain's most celebrated TV shows was the spy drama "Spooks", which was nominated for a BAFTA Best Drama year after year from 2003 to 2012, winning twice.

• In 1991, a major scandal involved the Best Drama award when Prime Suspect beat G.B.H. to win. But a majority of the voting panel later swore that they had voted for G.B.H. The discrepancy was never explained, and to this day "Baftagate" remains one of television's greatest mysteries.
