Sherlock-bpg-2013

Sherlock has won a single award from a possible three nominations at the Broadcasting Press Guild Awards at a ceremony in Central London this lunchtime, with Benedict Cumberbatch winning for Best Actor.

The series featured in three categories - Best Drama Series, Best Actor (Benedict Cumberbatch) and the BPG Writer's Award (Steven Moffat).

Benedict's nomination and win was for both Sherlock and Parade's End, which led the pack with a total of five nominations across all categories. The World War I drama series took away four awards itself - Best Drama Series, Best Actor (Benedict Cumberbatch), Best Actress (Rebecca Hall) and the BPG Writer's Award (Tom Stoppard).

The BPG awards are highly prized by programme-makers because they are selected independently by journalists who write about TV and radio - correspondents, critics and previewers. The awards lunch was attended by the winners, BPG members and leading broadcasting executives.
