South Bank Sky Arts Awards: Lily Allen and Danny Boyle among nominees
Previous winners include Stormzy, Hollywood star Tom Hiddleston, comedian and actor Steve Coogan and the late Amy Winehouse.
Lily Allen, Danny Boyle and Jessie Buckley are among the stars in the running to win at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards on Sunday.
Now in their 23rd year, the awards are the only ceremony in the world to celebrate every genre of the arts, including pop, dance, opera, comedy and TV.
Previous winners include recent Glastonbury headliner Stormzy, Hollywood star Tom Hiddleston, author Ian McEwan, comedian and actor Steve Coogan and the late singer Amy Winehouse.
In the pop category this year, Lily Allen is up against Idles and Sons Of Kemet, while the film category sees Oscar-winner The Favourite nominated alongside Peter Jackson’s powerful First World War documentary They Shall Not Grow Old and BAFTA-winner Beast – for which newcomer Jessie Buckley is also nominated for the ceremony’s Times breakthrough award.
Singer-songwriter Freya Ridings, opera singer Nadine Benjamin and young author Anna-Marie Crowhurst are also up for the prize, which highlights up-and-coming talent in the British arts.
Danny Boyle is shortlisted in the visual arts category, for his Pages Of The Sea project, marking the centenary of Armistice Day.
In the comedy group, the nominees are Derry Girls, Hang Ups and Inside No 9, while Patrick Melrose, Killing Eve and A Very English Scandal make up the shortlist in the TV drama category.
Authors Diana Evans (Ordinary People), Rachel Cusk (Kudos) and Tom Rachman (The Italian Teacher) are nominated for the literature award.
There will also be an outstanding achievement award announced, with previous winners including Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tracey Emin, Judi Dench, JK Rowling, Harold Pinter, Eddie Izzard and last year, Benedict Cumberbatch.
Sky’s director of programmes Zai Bennett said: “British culture is really thriving right now, and this year’s Awards nominees reflect the exceptionally gifted and diverse range of talent across the creative industries.”
The ceremony will be hosted by Melvyn Bragg on Sunday, and airs on Sky Arts on Wednesday.
