FINAL Royal Television Society Awards Predictions

Catastrophe, starring Sharon Hogan and Rob Delaney, is nominated for 3 awards tonight.

As we get ever closer to the heart of the television awards season, tonight we have the only major precursor to the May’s British Academy Television Awards, the RTS Awards. The categories are slightly different, but it’s interesting to see who will have the advantage going into next week’s BAFTA nominations, coming closely after today’s slightly scandalous Craft Awards nominations (WHAT?! No nominations for Detectorists?!). Anyway, without further ado, here are my predictions:
