BAFTA TV Awards: Tom Hollander wins Supporting Actor for The Night Manager

I'm late in posting this here, since I just noticed this and missed it, but thought I'd post it here anyway. The 2017 BAFTA TV Awards were handed out recently (last May 14th) in London with Netflix’s epic period series The Crownwhich led the nominations with five, completely shutout as Happy Valley picked up two awards and Tom Hollander won Supporting Actor for BBC and AMC's TV adaptation of John le Carré novel The Night Manager, the show’s only nomination.

Here's the list of Supporting Actor Category that Tom won (and see a few new photos of him above and below)...

BAFTA TV Awards: Backstage winner interviews – Tom Hollander

While this American import was only eligible for that one BAFTA, “The Night Manager” was expected to be a strong contender across the board as it had been at the Emmys. However, it was snubbed save for a lone bid for supporting actor Tom Hollander. He prevailed against two of the featured players on “The Crown” — Jared Harris (King George VI) and John Lithgow (Winston Churchill) — as well as Daniel Mays from the red-hot police drama “Line of Duty.”

I asked the actor, who has appeared in a wide range of projects from “Pirates of the Caribbean” to “Gosford Park” to “Pride and Prejudice,” how highly “The Night Manager” ranked on his filmography. “They are all very special when you do me – this one has just become very visible. There are things that I’m very attached to that I’ve done in the past – I did a little film about Dylan Thomas a few years ago [“A Poet in New York”]. That was probably the most fulfilling part that I’ve done on screen.”

He continued to explain that “The Night Manager’s” popularity ensures it sticks out amongst other things on his CV: “This was, yes, very visible and glamorous and, socially, very happy as well – I had a really fun time making it. And then it was received rapturously by the audience – all that is amazing and it’s just gone on and on, which is unusual. But you do tend to love the job you’re doing or the one you’ve just done. They are all brilliant, really.” [Gold Derby]

  1. He's a wonderful actor and I feel like he can do more then just supporting roles.I'm glad he won . He should have gotten an Olivier for Travesties as well.
