Both Netflix and Amazon Prime Video have been nominated in this year's BAFTAs. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has nommed Netflix six times, and Amazon just the once.

Netflix's luscious – not to mention pricey – royal drama 'The Crown' is the frontrunner, with its stars Claire Foy, Vanessa Kirby, John Lithgow and Jared Harris all nominated for acting awards. The show itself is a frontrunner for Best Drama Series.

Netflix's other nomination is in the International category for 'Stranger Things', which goes up against Amazon's 'Transparent'.

Despite winning Oscars and having almost 100 million subscribers worldwide, Netflix is yet to win an BAFTA. Its rival Amazon, however, won last year for 'Transparent'.

'The Crown' picked up two Golden Globes earlier this year. We'll have to wait until the ceremony on Sunday 14th May to see if it can replicate that success in its home land.
