BAFTA TV Awards: Helena Bonham Carter, 55, looks all partied out after The Crown's shock snub


She failed to pick up a gong at the BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday afternoon. 

Yet that didn’t seem to stop Helena Bonham Carter from partying the night away as she looked ready for bed while leaving the ceremony at Television Centre in White City alongside boyfriend Rye Dag Holmboe, 33. 

Struggling to keep her eyes open, the 55-year-old actress seemed ready for bed as she bundled into the back of a taxi with her beloved. 

Despite struggling to stay awake on the night, Helena was still preened to perfection in her glamorous polka dot gown with a voluminous tulle skirt. 

While she may have been dressed to win, she lost out in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in The Crown to Anthony’s Rakie Ayola. 

Helena played Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon in series three and four of the popular Netflix show.  

Viewers were left shocked as the royal show failed to pick up any gongs, despite sweeping the board at many American award shows.

The Netflix drama, loosely based on the Royal Family, was nominated for a variety of gongs including Drama Series, Leading Actor (for Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles), Supporting Actor (for Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip) and Supporting Actress (for Helena as Princess Margaret).

However, the series failed to hit a home run as they lost all four awards to other major TV contenders at the annual awards ceremony in London.

Expressing their shock on social media, one fan of The Crown penned: ‘Is it just me or is The Crown getting big snubbed at BAFTA TV awards?’

Another quipped: ‘Ikr. And how the Crown lost best drama? I thought it’s locked. Anyway BAFTA being BAFTA.’

A third viewer commented: ‘Netflix’s the crown’s misfortune era only in bafta yes ok bye’.

A fourth wrote on Twitter: ‘And after 4 seasons, Vanessa Kirby remains as the only actress who has won a BAFTA for The Crown, playing a better version of Princess Margaret than the real one.’

Nomination: The Netflix drama, loosely based on the Royal Family, was nominated for a variety of gongs including Drama Series, Leading Actor, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress (pictured Emma Corrin as Princess Diana and Josh O'Connor as Prince Charles)

Another commented on The Crown’s loss, noting the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor. 

They said: ‘Despite netflix’s the crown’s misfortunes (bafta’s, rather), happy lili diana day yay cutie ♡.’

Save Me Too won the Drama Series award, Paul Mescal of Normal People beat Josh to the Leading Actor gong, Malachi Kirby (Small Axe) won Best Supporting Actor while Rakie Ayola of Anthony trumped Helena to claim the Best Supporting Actress award.  

Fans were in disbelief that the Sweeney Todd actress failed to win the Best Supporting Actress trophy as they took to social media to declare she was ‘robbed’. 

Unimpressed: Expressing their shock on Twitter, one fan of The Crown penned: 'Is it just me or is The Crown getting big snubbed at BAFTA TV awards?'

One viewer penned: ‘My dearest helena bonham carter did not win the “supporting actress” award? okay bafta everyone knows she deserves the spot [Clown face].’

Another responded: ‘Helena Bonham Carter deserves better #BAFTAS,’ while a third commented: ‘#BAFTAS Helena Bonham Carter was ROBBED !!!’

A fourth wrote: ‘How is Olivia Colman or Helena Bonham Carter not nominated for Best Leading Actress for The Crown. #BAFTATV.’

Despite failing to take home any trophies during Sunday’s star-studded ceremony, The Crown has won a plethora of awards in recent years at the American Film Institute Awards, the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, the Primetime Emmy Awards and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The only star from The Crown to ever take home a BAFTA win was Vanessa Kirby In 2018, when she won the Best Supporting Actress gong for her portrayal of Princess Margaret. 

Emma Corrin, who won the Drama Series Actress statue at the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards in March, was ‘snubbed’ at this year’s BAFTA ceremony, after she was left off the 2021 nominations list. 

Some took to Twitter to declare her absence from the nominations as a ‘literal joke’, despite her respective award season success as the late Princess Diana. 

Expressing their frustration on social media, ‘baffled’ fans wrote: ‘Emma and gillian [Anderson] not being nominated for any baftas after already sweeping award season so far its very odd #BAFTATV.’

Another added: ‘Nah the fact that that baftas have josh nominated but not emma.? they both gave outstanding performances… ANYWAY GOOD MORNING and im mad at the #BAFTAS nominations for forgetting emma corrin.’

Angered viewers didn’t hold back as they continued: ‘baftas u absolute embarrassments how r u gonna nominate josh but not emma THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOMINATING AWARD SEASONS TOGETHER WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU.’

Season four of the Netflix programme is based on the former Princess of Wales’ strained relationship with her husband Charles, as well as Margaret Thatcher’s reign as Prime Minister of the UK from the late 70s to the early 90s.

Following its three wins at the British Academy Television Craft Awards in May, I May Destroy You, won two more BAFTAs on Sunday, for Mini-Series and Leading Actress for Michaela Coel.
