EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS PROFANE LANGUAGE British actress Olivia Colman scooped up two acting honors at the British Academy Television Awards but it was the Olympics that scored big. The Channel 4 production team was recognised for its coverage of the Paralympic Games, while situation comedy Twenty Twelve, which centred around the preparations for the Games, also picked up its own award. Daleks from the successful British science fiction show Dr Who took to the red carpet as the awards ceremony celebrated the programs 50 year run. Actress Sienna Miller said she was determined to enjoy an evening where she was nominated for best leading actress despite the rain. SOUNDBITE: Sienna Miller, actress, saying (English): "I feel very British and always have done, but it's lovely to be here. It's great to be at home. Regardless of this charming weather. You know, it's great." Broadcaster and comedian Michael Palin, who made his name as a founder of the Monty Python comedy group, received one of the British entertainment industry's highest accolades. SOUNDBITE: Michael Palin, actor, saying (English): "It's a very nice tribute on the part of BAFTA to all the work I've done over the years, and I have done a lot of different kinds of television programs, from writing comedy, to performing comedy, to doing serious documentaries." Among the leading channels, BBC2 led the field with a total of 26 nominations, followed by BBC1 with 22, Channel 4 with 16, and ITV with 10.
