June 07, 2010

The 2010 BAFTA awards were presented on June 6 at the Palladium Theatre in London and televised on BBC1.

The best drama series award went to Misfits, produced by Kate Crowe and starring Iwan Rheon and Antonia Thomas. The series, which began broadcasting on E4 in November last year, centres on the adventures of a group of young offenders who find themselves possessing supernatural powers.

Cult hit political comedy The Thick of It, co-written by Tony Roche, also won in the best sitcom category. Its two main actors, Rebecca Front and Peter Capaldi, won the awards for the best female and male comedy performances respectively.

Dispatches: Terror in Mumbai, produced and directed by Dan Reed picked up the award for best current affairs. The documentary, which aired on Channel 4, revealed the untold story of 2008's terrorist attack on the Indian city of Mumbai, in the words of its victims and the gunmen.

BAFTA also presented a special prize for Iain Morris and Damon Beesley's The Inbetweeners, which stars Blake Harrison and Henry Lloyd-Hughes. The award, voted for via YouTube, was for best comedy series.
