'Chernobyl' dominates with 14 nominations across the main and craft categories, while 'The Crown' will battle it out with 'Gentleman Jack' for the title of Best Drama Series.

AceShowbiz - Jodie Comer and Glenda Jackson will compete for the Leading Actress gong at the 2020 BAFTA TV Awards.

Jodie receives another nomination for her performance as deadly assassin Villanelle in "Killing Eve", while two-time Oscar winner Glenda is up for her portrayal of a woman battling dementia in "Elizabeth is Missing"

The other contenders for the prize are Samantha Morton ("I Am Kirsty") and Suranne Jones ("Gentleman Jack").

Battling it out for the Leading Actor in a Drama award are "The Capture"'s Callum Turner, Stephen Graham ("The Virtues"), Takehiro Hira ("Giri/Haji") and Jared Harris for "Chernobyl". "Chernobyl" also has the most nominations across the main and craft categories with 14.

The show, about the 1986 nuclear disaster at a Soviet power station, is also up for the Mini-Series award alongside "A Confession", "The Victim", and "The Virtues". The nominees for Best Drama Series are "The Crown", "The End of the F***ing World", "Gentleman Jack", and "Giri/Haji".

Stellan Skarsgard ("Chernobyl"), and Helena Bonham Carter ("The Crown"), are also among the nominees in the supporting acting categories.

"Fleabag"'s Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Sian Clifford both land a nomination for Female Performance in a Comedy Programme, competing with Gbemisola Ikumelo ("Famalam"), and Sarah Kendall ("Frayed"). "Fleabag" also lands a Scripted Comedy nod.

"Succession", "When They See Us", "Unbelievable", and "Euphoria" are all up for the International award.

Meanwhile, TV host Graham Norton and "Famalam" actor Ikumelo received two individual nominations each.

New talent has broken through too, with first-time nominees comprising 57 percent of the performance category nominations, with Ikumelo and Turner, joined by "Sex Education" star Ncuti Gatwa, "Top Boy"'s Jasmine Jobson, and Naomi Ackie of "The End of the F***ing World", among the BAFTA first timers.

In regards to representation across nominations - with which BAFTA has been criticised for in recent years - this year's awards has seen a 22 percent rise in nominees of colour compared to last year.
