The 2016 Television BAFTA Awards, Royal Festival Hall

May 8th, 2016.

Unlike last year, where the TV Baftas were held at the Theatre Royal, this year they're at Royal Festival Hall Southbank. However like last year, unless you're an actor / actress involved in (a) Movies, (b) Game of Thrones, (c) Sherlock, all I can do is compliment youon your dress, sunglasses, or degree of crowd response. And this year, despite my lovingly attached Pink Public Pen wristband, I'd be shooting from outside the event.

Here's how it went down.

My shooting location is the second level of a set of yellow stairs leading to a bar filled with patrons all thinking some combination of 'what a nice day it is!'; 'what's going on over there', and 'why don't I bring a Nikon D4 and a lens with 200mm f2.8 zoom with me like that guy over there when I go drinking?'

To my extreme left I can in theory photograph people getting out of cars, and walking up two flights of stairs before they even enter the event. Obviously I won't be able to take many closeups, and if anybody in the bar asks me why I'm standing here not drinking anything, I will buy anything, including but not limited to ANYTHING, to keep my spot. (Quadruple vodka? I think my camera has shake-reduction...)

According to some knowledgeable (and probably not that drunk) people near me, this is Craig Revel Horwood, and he has (had?) something to do with some kind of Dancing show.

With all due respect to Craig Revel Horwood, one of the first attendees at this event is a pretty big deal (translation : they're in television and even I'VE heard of them!) - Kunal Nayyar plays Raj in The Big Bang Theory.

I don't know who this is, but in potentially important news, I might have the range and angle to take full length dress shots. Of people wearing dresses, I mean. Full-length tuxedoes look like tuxedoes for the entirety of their length.

I'm pretty sure this is Laura Whitmore, because she's hosted the occasional premiere ("How to be Single" I seem to recall?) - and I'd like to think I have a fairly decent memory for people with the name Laura.

I don't know who this is, but people were shouting at him, and I don't think it was to get out of the way of somebody more important.

I don't know who this is, but even now it's probably my favourite dress, and the eyebrows and hairstyle of the woman it belongs to are amazing. But the dress.... metallurgists are probably taking screengrabs of the redcarpet broadcast and showing it to all their friends.

I don't know who this is, and disappointingly the floppy hat of the guy in the crowd near him is doing a better job of drawing my attention.

I don't know who this is, but the sideburns are top-notch and he crossed the carpet especially to sign autographs. Or issue parking infringements. I couldn't quite see from my angle.

If I didn't have knowledgeable fans of baking (?!) next to me on the stairs, and if I hadn't also photographed her at another awards ceremony, I wouldn't have recognised Mary Berry and her impressively solid hairstyle

I believe I've made eye-contact with the very beautiful woman in the black dress, but either I'm going to have to abandon my pretty decent spot and fight my way past a couple of security fences, two or three guards and three rows of fans.... or she's going to have to do that, except in reverse. It's a stalemate, unfortunately. That's all I can say.

I don't know who this is, but people were shouting out either "Sasha!", "Saoirse!" or "Susan" to get her attention. I shouted "Steve!" just to add some variety. (edited to add : even more confusingly, her name is apparently "Birdy")

"Time to sign things. From detention slips to school excursion permissions, I'll do anything...." Tom Courtenay was in the recent "Dad's Army" movie, and also "Quartet" and has been nominated for two Oscars and won two (film) Baftas. And won a TV Bafta on the night.

"One day I look forward to having people not questioning what I'm wearing. They'd better still ask me WHO I'm wearing, though. I've got commercial endorsements to think about..." (edited to add : this is somebody called Grayson Perry. It doesn't help me as I don't know who that is)

As noted, unless you're (a) in movies, (b) in Game of Thrones, or (c) in Sherlock, the likelihood I know who you are at events like this is minimal. However, in this case, I've gotten lucky: the guy on the left is Steven Moffat, one of the co-creators of Sherlock! (I don't know who the woman is...)

Mark Gatiss is the OTHER co-creator of one of the two television entities I have a passing familiarity with (Sherlock). Sadly, it's a show with so few episodes that if they keep making them at their current rate and then stop in ten years time, there'll probably less episodes of Sherlock than Fawlty Towers.

"A lot of people are calling out wanting me to sign stuff. I'd rather not. Got anything you wanna talk about? Britain exiting the EU? Google and Facebook running rampant over privacy? Anything controversial will be great. I'll take any side, too!"

Ordinarily I'd boldly claim I'drather gnaw off my arm than acknowledge Leigh Francis (aka. Keith Lemon, of The Keith Lemon Movie fame),however he did win a Bafta for best Entertainment Performance so I guess I don't have the option of not including him in this journal.

I don't know who this is, but the dress is great, the hairstyle's amazing, and the guy she's looking at is even older than I am. Even if he's about 40-60 times closer to her in terms of proximity. (edited to add : musician Katherine Jenkins)

I don't know who the lady on the left is. Or the lady on the right. Or the three heads facing them. Or the identity of the peopel whose feet you can see. It's kind of tricky but I'm doing what I can. (good news : the lady on the left is Georgia May Foote. bad news : I don't know who that is)

Men are wearing suits. Women are wearing dresses. In case you're interested, I myself am currently wearing a black LA cap and a free t-shirt celebrating the release of the movie 'Haywire' (2011). I wear it ironically because indeed I thought the movie was crap. My wristwatch is a Seiko.

Amazingly, I am able to impress the people around me by identifying this as Mark Rylance, who won the Oscar (and Bafta) for Best Supporting Actor for Steven Spielberg's "Bridge of Spies". (edited to add : he also won a TV Bafta on the night, for something called 'Wolf Hall')

"The Redlettermedia deconstruction of Captain America Civil War is about 40mins long but it pretty much matches my opinion. You should watch it. Right now. But maybe do it on your phone, my plan is pretty low on credit...." (edited to add : I don't know who this is, but it's true : I was disappointed by Captain America Civil War)

"I can't frown any harder than I already am, Bro" - if I hadn't previously photographed David Schaal at the premiere of "The Inbetweeners 2" I'd have no idea that he was David Schaal and that he was in The Inbetweeners 2.

"Honestly, I wanted to blend right in at this event, and catch nobody's attention whatsoever...." - Aleesha Dixon's dress (and the person wearing Aleesha Dixon's dress) certainly provides new lower readings for subtlety. In a good way, though.

If my halting memory of last year's TV Baftas is accurate, this is Jon Snow! (I'm celebrating my lack of clear memory more than the exciting fact that his name is also a character on Game of Thrones who recently returned from the dead, which is pretty rare in that charnel house of a TV show)

I'm surprised at this stage about an hour into procedings that security, whose iron grip on the lower balcony, is still letting all of us stand on a circular staircase. That level of acceptance is rather rare. My offer to buy a drink to legitimise my occupation of my spot stands, though. (also : edited to add : this is Katherine Ryan)

Iwan Rheon plays the vile (or perhaps exceedingly poorly understood) Ramsay Bolton in Game of Thrones. For a show to provide a character even more hateful than the dearly departed Joffrey Lannister is quite the achievement but I'd say GoT managed it.

"Check it out. Tamron lens. About 1/3 cheaper than OEM. Totally worth it". Among the ongoing cavalcade of stars I don't recognise because my TV set is too far from my antenna outlet to allow me to watch the thing and I'm too lazy to buy an extension, and also iPlayer keeps asking me if I want to update it because apparently there's more to TV than (a) sound (b) visuals and apparently I'd been doing without those two.... I feel like I should recognise who this is. But I don't. (edited to add : she's "Cush Jumbo")

I don't know who any of these three people are, but at least by photographing them as a group I'm being considerably more efficient than photographing them separately. (edited to add, with thanks to the Bafta website photo gallery, that they'rre from the TV show Made in Chelsea)

Now with 33% more efficiency per photo! I don't know who any of these FOUR people are. The people around me seemed to sugget the guy second from the right might have been famous but I think the bald guy in the back with a bow-tie and a black suit possibly deserves it more.

There was quite the clamour among autograph dealers when this guy was signing in the pen opposite, but I didn't catch his name. And no matter how lustrous and excellent the beard is, he's far too short to be Jason Mamoa who was Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones and is the upcoming Aquaman in DCs ongong attempt to bankrupt itself by trying to be like Marvel but louder, darker, and more depressing. It's a bold strategy. (edited to add : He's Aidan Turner. One of the dwarves in The Hobbit)

It's Idris Elba!!! I don't mind telling you I'm excited, at least in part because I've been standing out in this heat for several hours. And, yes, I'm from Australia. But as you might appreciate, I didn't move all the way from Australia to the UK because I love warm weather.

"I'm looking directly into your camera. You'd better make me look awesome" - Idris Elba is arguably best known for the TV Series 'Luthor' (which I haven't watched) but he was also in the movie Pacific Rim, as well as playing the character Heimdall in Thor and Thor : The Dark World.

The next big arrival : Tom Hiddleston, most recently of The Night Manager fame. However he's probably one of the people I've photographed most often at premieres - everything from "Thor" and "Thor the Dark World" and "The Avengers" to "High-Rise", "Only Lovers Left Alive" and any number of Baftas, Bifas, Olivers and now TV Baftas.

"It's okay. I'm not going to show her this photo until she's old enough to handle that evil grin!" Tom Hiddleston's Loki remains probably still the only intelligent, coherent and compelling Marvel Cinematic Universe villain. Mainly because Tony Stark apparently ISN'T considered a supervillain.... you know, in spite of all evidence that you could put forward.

So... that was that, then. Less than 24 hours after having been at Royal Festival Hall watching Brian Tyler in concert (which was excellent), I was showcasing the sorry state of my lack of TV knowledge and not photographing any number of worthy recipients from leading actress Suranne Jones, to Special Bafta Award winner Lenny Henry to dual winner Peter Kay. But who cares : I probably got a slight tan this afternoon, which will make me look slighly less dangerously vampiric for the next week or so.

And no matter what, this event joins its predecessor The 2015 Television Baftas in my Archive of Movie premieres, where hopefully two premieres in the next two days will add to the bulk.

Until next time!
