London: The British Academy Television Awards (BAFTAs) were awarded Sunday for the British television series “I May Destroy You” and directed by Michaela Coyle for her performance as an actress as well.
Aired on BBC and HBO in the summer of 2020, this 12-episode series tells the story of a successful young black blogger and novelist named Arabella as she recovers from a rape she suffered while in a London bar with friends.
During the BAFTA celebration, Michaela Cowell praised Eta O’Brien, who she described as the “privacy coordinator” during filming of the series, thanking her for “providing a safe space to draw physical, emotional and professional boundaries” that allows the series’ cast to “carry out this work of exploitation, loss of respect, and abuse of power.” , without himself falling victim to “exploitation or abuse” during filming.
Coyle added that O’Brien’s work was “essential” to the series and should be “for every production company that wants to do work on consent” in relationships.
The series “The Crown” from “Netflix” left empty-handed from the celebration, which was held in a hall where the audience was deliberately scattered due to the Covid-19 pandemic and participated partly via the Internet.
The series about the British royal family was competing for four awards, with Helena Bonham Carter (Princess Margaret) nominated for Best Supporting Actress, Josh O’Connor (Prince Charles) in the Best Actor category, and Tobias Menzies (Prince Philip) in the Best Supporting Actor category.
