It's A Sin leads the 2022 British Academy Television Awards nominations with 11.

Russell T Davies' drama, about the HIV/AIDS crisis in '80s England, scooped six nominations for the Television Awards and five for its sister show, the British Academy Television Craft Awards.

The nominations include Mini-Series, Leading Actor for Olly Alexander, Leading Actress for Lydia West, and Supporting Actor for Callum Scott Howells, Omari Douglas, and David Carlyle.

It's A Sin is closely followed by Landscapers with seven nominations, followed by Help, Time and We Are Lady Parts with six.

Alexander will compete against Leading Actor nominees David Thewlis for Landscapers, Sean Bean for Time, Stephen Graham for Help, You Don't Know Me's Samuel Adewunmi, and Hugh Quarshie for Stephen.

Meanwhile, the Leading Actress category is between West, Too Close stars Denise Gough and Emily Watson, Help's Jodie Comer, Kate Winslet for Mare of Easttown, and Niamh Algar for Deceit.

One notable nominee is comedian Sean Lock, who received a posthumous nod for Entertainment Performance for 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown. He passed away in August last year.
