Adele lands first ever BAFTA TV nomination

Adele has scored her first British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) nomination for her comeback TV special Adele At The Bbc.

The Hello singer's one-off show landed a BAFTA TV Award nomination for Entertainment Programme alongside the anniversary special of chat show TGI Friday and reality shows Britain's Got Talent and Strictly Come Dancing when the shortlist was announced on Wednesday morning (30Mar16).


In the special, which aired in the U.K. in November (15), Adele sang a string of classic hits, plus songs from her new album 25, sat down for an interview with host Graham Norton and took part in a sketch.


In the skit, which went viral, Adele fooled fans by wearing prosthetics on her face and a wig to disguise herself as an Adele impersonator called Jenny. She took part in an audition with other Adele tribute acts and eventually revealed her true self.


This is not the first time the songwriter has been up for awards in film or TV ceremonies. She took home a Golden Globe and Academy Award in 2013 for Skyfall, the theme song to the James Bond movie of the same name.


She is also waiting to learn if she will win an Outstanding Musical Performance in a Talk Show/Morning Program prize at the 2016 Daytime Emmy Awards on 01 May (16) for her performance on morning show Today. She is competing against TV performances by Jeff Lynne's ELO, Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson, Rachel Platten, and Annie Lennox.
