As the nominations for the BAFTA television awards 2020 were announced recently on Thursday, June 4, TV shows Chernobyl and The Crown bag the maximum number of nominations and take the lead.
The nuclear drama Chernobyl based on the 1986 disaster at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant was heavily praised by the audience as well as the critics and managed to bag 14 nominations in total.
