Martin Freeman - Freeman Wins Bafta Tv Award

British actor Martin Freeman was all smiles on Sunday (22May11) after winning a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) TV Award.
The Love Actually star was named Best Supporting Actor for his role as Dr. Watson in U.K. TV series Sherlock, which was also voted the Best Drama Series at the London ceremony.
Accepting his prize, Freeman told the audience, "I know it's very fashionable to say you don't care about this stuff but I'm very chuffed (happy)."
The actor flew in for the ceremony from New Zealand where he's filming the Lord of The Rings prequel, The Hobbit.
Other big winners at the prizegiving included funnyman Steve Coogan, who accepted Best Male Comic Performance for The Trip, and comedienne Jo Brand who won the female equivalent for hospital sitcom Getting On.
The Bafta TV Awards, held at the Grosvenor House in the British capital, celebrate the best in TV programmes.
