Crime Thriller Award nominees 2013

ACTORS AND TV folk are gathering at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Thursday to give out gongs to the best crime dramas and movies of the year.

Broadchurch, the superb ITV series starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman, dominates the nominations with six nods from the selection judges (of which CrimeTimePreview is a voting member). This is fair enough, as no UK drama generated as much buzz as Broadchurch in 2013.

Luther is not far behind with four nominations, while BBC2’s The Fall limps in with a disappointing two noms – TV Dagger and Best Actress for Gillian Anderson – which is a poor return for one of the best and most original series we’ve seen recently.

The Killing 3 with Sofie Grabol turn up for the last time as the groundbreaking Danish series reached a fittingly bold finale this year. That other major international hot show of the moment, Homeland, is also strongly represented with four nominations – International TV Dagger, Mandy Patinkin, Damian Lewis and, of course, Claire Danes.

The event will be broadcast on ITV3 on Tuesday, 29 October, at 9pm.
