Six shows are in the running to win BAFTA’s Memorable TV Moment award, including Heartstopper and Derry Girls - here’s how to vote for your favourite.

Even more BAFTA TV Awards nominations have been confirmed, but this time it’s for its Memorable TV Moment award. A category that has found a special place in the hearts of viewers, as it’s the only award voted for by members of the general public.

From the heartfelt afternoon tea meeting between the late Queen Elizabeth II and Paddington, to Kate Bush’s now iconic ‘Running Up That Hill’ moment in Netflix’s Stranger Things, it boasts all the illustrious moments that had eyes glued to the small screen. Also up for a gong is The Traitors roundtable, Derry Girls’ emotional finale and BBC’s unforgettable The Real Mo Farah documentary.

The nominations were confirmed on Tuesday (18 April) and Emma Baehr, Bafta’s executive director of awards and content, said in a statement: “The six moments we’re sharing today capture what BAFTA stands for: creativity, innovation, and authenticity. The Memorable Moment Award spotlights the unforgettable scenes of the last year that truly resonated and inspired viewers at home, showcasing the impact of television - we are all looking forward to seeing what the public chooses”.

Six shows are in the running for the inaugural Memorable Moment award ahead of awards ceremony at the Royal Festival Hall in London on 14 May.
