"I don't want to ignore the elephant in the room but on such an occasion I think it would be crass to discuss my fee", she said.

ITV2 dating show Love Island scored a Bafta in the reality and constructed factual category but it was defeated by Blue Planet II for the Virgin TV must-see moment prize. "For me Jodie was the ideal choice because if this year has taught us one thing it's that if anyone can fight off monsters it's actors". Meanwhile, Sean Bean earned the Best Actor honour for Broken, and Brian F. O'Byrne picked up Best Supporting Actor for Little Boy Blue, based on the tragic death of 11-year-old Rhys Jones, who was fatally shot in Liverpool, England in 2007.

Several winners dedicated their prizes to real-life people they portrayed. Murder in Successville won for comedy entertainment program.

It told the harrowing story of the children who were groomed, sexually abused and trafficked by British Pakistani men in Rochdale.

"We are thrilled to present our first special award in games performance to Nolan North", said BAFTA Chair Nick Button-Brown in a press release.

The same can be said for Kane at Tottenham as he's now scored 108 goals in 150 Premier League games. Harry Kane is "looking forward" to taking Mohamed Salah on for the Golden Boot next season.

It was not a successful night for diverse nominees.

The show was also a big victor at the BAFTA TV Craft Awards and Philippa Lowthorpe picked up in the Director: Fiction category, Uni Ni Dhonghaile in the Editing: Fiction category and Nicole Taylor, the Writer: Drama category.

Other winners included The Handmaid's Tale winning the award for best worldwide series, This Country winning Scripted Comedy, Daisy May Cooper winning Female Performance in a Comedy Program for This Country and Toby Jones winning Male Performance in a Comedy Program for Detectorists, among others. It was his first ever Bafta win. Amazon Prime was snubbed completely from the awards.

"To be recognized for one's work is always special, but to be recognized by BAFTA is truly an honor", commented North, who's also appeared in other major franchises like Destiny, Assassin's Creed, and Call of Duty.
