Peaky Blinders is a top victor at BAFTA Television Awards

The Best International Show category provides the night with some of its biggest names with the Emmy-winning limited series "Big Little Lies" and drama series "The Handmaid's Tale" in the running as are the limited series "Feud: Bette and Joan" and the documentary series "The Vietnam War".

The British actress, who played Holly Winshaw, a 14-year-old victim in Three Girls, dedicated her award to the bravery of the abused girls and their struggle for justice.

These friendships become sexual and get violent with Molly Windsor's character unable to escape from her harrowing situation. Normally, if you do a hard scene, you have a cup of tea and a bit of chocolate and you come out of it.

And she described Foy as "the best sister ever", before hastily remembering her real-life family.

'She is incredibly strong. 'Tonight I am having to work alongside a massive organ, ' she said.

"I just want to say thank you for recognising how selfless that is and how fearless that is".

The Best Drama award went to Peaky Blinders, which was one of the surprises of the night as most people expected Netflix's The Crown to walk away with award.

The award for factual series went to Ambulance, and Love Island won for reality or constructed factual. It won the BAFTA for Scripted Comedy, and one of the stars, Daisy May Cooper, took home the award for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme. The four acting categories on the drama side are highly competitive as they include performances in series, limited series and telefilms.

"We are thrilled to present our first special award in games performance to Nolan North", said BAFTA Chair Nick Button-Brown in a press release.

The Best Actor accolade was given to Sean Bean for Broken, Best Supporting Actress to Vanessa Kirby for The Crown and Supporting Actor to Brian F. O'Byrne for Little Boy Blue.
