This year’s BAFTA Television Craft nominations have been announced with the Irish once again very well represented; DoP John Conroy, director Aisling Walsh and writer Sharon Horgan have all received nods while Irish drama series ‘Penny Dreadful’ and Northern Irish shot ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ have received one nomination apiece.
DoP John Conroy, best known for his massive amount of television work on dramas such as ‘Penny Dreadful’, ‘Broadchurch’, ‘The Smoke’, ‘Silk’ and ‘Silent Witness’ – has received a nomination for his work on ‘Fortitude’. This is the second time that Conroy has been nominated as he also received a nomination in 2014 for his work on ‘Luther’.

Director Aisling Walsh has also been nominated this year – for her work on the television movie ‘An Inspector Calls’. She has also been IFTA nominated for her work on the film.
Writer Sharon Horgan has also received a nomination in the category of Writer Comedy (alongside co-writer Rob Delaney) for her work in ‘Catastrophe’. Her work on the acclaimed series ‘Catastrophe’ has already earned her a Creative Skillset Writing Award at the Women in Film and TV Awards as well as two IFTA Television Awards (for writing and acting in the show).
