Emmerdale fails to receive a BAFTA nomination one year after winning best soap

Emmerdale has been snubbed from this year’s nominations for the TV BAFTAs, despite winning the award for best soap in 2020.

The ITV soap has not received one single nomination, and instead Coronation Street, EastEnders, Hollyoaks and Casualty will battle it out for the accolade at this year’s ceremony.

BBC’s EastEnders has received a BAFTA TV Awards nomination once again after being snubbed last year – and the moment of Chantelle Atkin’s murder has been nominated for a Must See Moment award.

Ever since the the Best Soap and Continuing Drama category was introduced in 1999, the Walford-based soap has won it nine times, more than any other show.

Elsewhere, ITV’s The Masked Singer will battle it out to be named best Entertainment Program.

The BBC has received a total of 104 nominations, while Netflix had 25 and Apple TV+ bagged its first BAFTA TV nominations.

The British Academy Television Awards will take place on June 6.
