The origins of the BAFTA Television Awards began in 1954, with the giving of awards in six categories. They became known as the BAFTAs (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) beginning with the 1976 ceremony. Like their film counterparts, they are regarded as the most prestigious awards in the British television industry. Despite this, Coronation Street and its cast were only nominated four times prior to the introduction of a soap category at the 1999 awards.

The British Academy Television Awards, as they are also known, are given for programmes broadcast the previous year.

Note: Coronation Street winners have been listed in BOLD CAPITALS.

Performance AwardsEdit

Best ActressEdit

1988: Jean Alexander

  • Although this is the only Best Actress nomination Coronation Street has ever been nominated for, it is worth noting that no other 'soap star' received another nomination until 2009 when June Brown was nominated for an episode of EastEnders, in what was soaps' first ever monologue. She, also, did not win.
