Irish Nominees for BAFTA Television Craft Awards
24 Mar 2014 : Deirdre Molumby
The nominations for the 2014 BAFTA Television Craft Awards have been announced with several Irish industry professionals confirmed as nominees. The awards honour the very best of the behind-the-scenes talent working in television. This year’s awards ceremony will take place on Sunday 27 April at the Brewery in East London.

For the Breakthrough Talent Award, Dublin-born writer Nancy Harris has been nominated for her scripting of two episodes for the Channel 4 series ‘Dates’. Harris also wrote the season finale of ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl’, and is also well-known as a playwright having won the Stuart Parker Award 2012 for her first full-length play ‘No Romance’.

Harris will be up against Dan Smith (‘Dan Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive 3D’), Daniel Fajemisin-Duncan and Marlon Smith (‘Run’), and Sam and Teddy Leifer (‘Plebs’) for the award.

Meanwhile, Irish DoP John Conroy has been nominated for his work on BBC series ‘Luther’, a crime drama starring Idris Elba as a genius but dangerous murder detective. Conroy has worked with the likes of Jim Sheridan, John Boorman, Tim Burton, Paul Greengrass and Joel Schumacher over his thirty-year long career. His two most recent Irish features are ‘Parked’ and ‘The Sea’, the latter of which is a 2014 IFTA nominee.

Conroy will compete against George Steel for ‘Peaky Blinders’, Ashley Rowe for ‘Dancing on the Edge’ and Ole Birkeland for ‘Utopia’, to win the award for Photography and Lighting in Fiction/Entertainment category.

Mark Geraghty from Dublin has also been nominated for a BAFTA in the Production Design category. The two-time IFTA winner (and nominee again for this year’s awards) has worked as a production designer on several major Irish and international productions including ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’, ‘In America’, ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’’, and, most recently, John Michael McDonagh’s ‘Calvary’.

The other nominees in the Production Design category this year are Grant Montgomery for ‘Peaky Blinders’, John Stevenson for ‘Burton and Taylor’, and Catrin Meredydd for ‘Broadchurch’.

Finally, Graham Linehan, known for hit series ‘Father Ted’ and whose latest show ‘The Walshes’ broadcasted its last episode on RTÉ One last week, has been nominated for Best Writer in Comedy. Linehan has been nominated for both ‘The IT Crowd’, starring Chris O’ Dowd, and ‘Count Arthur Strong’, sharing the latter nomination with co-writer Steve Delaney.

‘Fresh Meat’ writers Sam Bain, Jesse Armstrong and Tom Basden, and writing partners of ‘The Wrong Mans’, James Corden and Mathew Baynton, have also been nominated for the BAFTA.
