Claire Foy is pleased to be abdicating from Netflix's 'The Crown'

The Netflix original series The Crown is in prime position to be the big victor at the BAFTA TV Awards.

The lead role of the young Queen Elizabeth II brought The Crown its first Golden Globe, but despite this success, Claire Foy steps down.

The BAFTA TV Craft Awards nods have already need and will honour those behind the scenes for their work on television on programmes such as The Crown, Poldark and Planet Earth II.

The Crown racked up nominations for Best Drama Series, along with nominations in four acting categories.

Netflix also saw its cult hit "Stranger Things" named in the worldwide category, the one category which focuses on non-British productions. He has also been nomination for a BAFTA film award.

The Night Manager star Tom Hiddleston has been snubbed in the nominations at this year's TV Baftas.

But Tom as well as co-stars Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman miss out in the acting categories, with only The Night Manager's Tom Hollander up for supporting actor for the John le Carre drama.

Also nearly completely shut out was the BBC's acclaimed adaptation of War and Peace, which picked up one nomination for Best Drama Series, an honor for which it'll have to beat The Crown, The Durrells and Happy Valley.

The Night Of, The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, Stranger Things and Transparent compete in the worldwide category.

The Great British Bake Off is nominated in the Features category for the sixth year in a row.

Claire Foy is nominated for Leading Actress for the second year in a row, facing competition from Jodie Comer, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Sarah Lancashire in the category.

Feature-length drama Damilola, Our Loved Boy followed with three nominations, including lead actor for Babou Ceesay and best supporting actress for Wunmi Mosaku. Its rivals are "Murdered by My Father", "NW" and the BBC's "Aberfan: The Green Hollow".

The awards ceremony takes place at London's Royal Festival Hall on 14 May.
