Apple TV+ shows "Foundation" and "9/11: Inside the President's War Room," and more, have been nominated for the BAFTA television awards, although the UK organization is not recognizing Apple for all of them.

Following its wins for "Ted Lasso" and "CODA" at the BAFTA film event, Apple TV+ is now in the running for eight more in the separate television awards. The nominations are split between what BAFTA describes as the TV and separate TV Craft awards.

However, BAFTA is not acknowledging Apple TV+ for "9/11: Inside the President's War Room," which is nominated for two awards. This is because the show was made by Wish/Art Films for both Apple TV+ and the UK's BBC One channel.

BAFTA is crediting it to Wish/Art and BBC1 as those are behind the Single Documentary and Factual: Editing nominee's airing in the UK.

Then Leah Harvey is nominated for her starring role as Salvor Hardin in "Foundation," but she's competing in the best Supporting Actress category. She will have been entered into that category by the "Foundation" producers, presumably reflecting how they see the show as an ensemble piece.

The BAFTA TV Awards will take place on May 8, 2022, when the winner of Leah Harvey's category will be announced. So, too, will the Single Documentary category where "9/11: Inside the President's War Room" is nominated.

BAFTA then holds a separate TV Craft Awards on April 24, 2022, where "9/11" will compete for best Editing: Factual. This second awards night will also feature "Earth at Night in Color" competing in the Special Visual & Graphics Effects category.

And the Craft Awards include two categories where Apple TV+ shows are competing against each other. For Photograph: Factual, both "Tiny World," and "Earth at Night in Color" are in competition.

Then under the Sound: Factual category, "Earth at Night in Color" will go up against shows including "1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything."

A second season of "Foundation" is in production for streaming on Apple TV+, though no date has been announced yet.
