There could be double delight for Peter Capaldi and Olivia Colman at the TV Baftas with the pair each in the running for two different awards.

Colman, nominated for female performance in a comedy programme for Twenty Twelve, is also nominated in the supporting actress category for her role in Accused.

Capaldi is in the running for the supporting actor gong for his performance in The Hour and could also take home the award for best male performance in a comedy programme for his role as foul-mouthed spin doctor Malcolm Tucker in The Thick Of It.

Olympic satire Twenty Twelve picked up four nominations in total with Jessica Hynes and Hugh Bonneville both recognised.

The coverage of Danny Boyle's Olympic opening ceremony is nominated in the Sport and Live Event category. Also recognised are The Girl, Last Tango In Halifax and Accused - all of which picked up four nominations.

The Girl - based on actress Tippi Hedren's tumultuous relationship with film-maker Alfred Hitchcock - sees Sienna Miller, who played Hedren, nominated for leading actress. Toby Jones, who played Hitchcock, is nominated for leading actor and co-star Imelda Staunton also gets a nod in the supporting actress category. Miller is up against Anne Reid from Last Tango In Halifax, Rebecca Hall from Parade's End and Sheridan Smith for Mrs Biggs.

The competition for the leading actor gong sees Jones compete with Derek Jacobi, recognised for Last Tango In Halifax, Ben Whishaw in Richard II and Sean Bean, who is nominated for his role as a transvestite teacher in Accused.

The event takes place at London's Royal Festival Hall and is hosted by Graham Norton.

Also nominated for best supporting actress are Anastasia Hille for The Fear and Sarah Lancashire from Last Tango In Halifax.

The other nominees for supporting actor are Stephen Graham from The Accused, The Fear's Harry Lloyd and Simon Russell Beale for his role in Henry IV Part 2 which was shown as part of the BBC's Hollow Crown Shakespeare season.

Keep your eyes open for a cosy property near a body of water. The sight of a pond, lake or river will soothe your fiery energy. A youngster or romantic partner will balk at your decision to move. Don't let an angry outburst deter you from your goal. It's time to establish roots.More
