Sean Bean - Sean Bean And Olivia Colman Lead Royal Television Society Awards

Sean Bean and Olivia Colman picked up the top acting prizes at the U.K.'s Royal Television Society Programme Awards on Tuesday (19Mar13) for their roles in gritty British drama Accused.

Bean landed the Best Actor trophy for his turn as a transvestite in the Bbc series, while The Iron Lady star Colman picked up the Best Actress honour for her portrayal of a grieving mother in a separate episode of the show.

Colman saw off competition from her Accused co-star Anne-Marie Duff to take the prize.

Detective series Sherlock was also a big winner on the night, garnering awards for Best Drama and Best Drama Writer for creator Steven Moffat.

Director Danny Boyle was handed a special judges' award for his work on the opening ceremony of last year's (12) London Olympic Games.

Coronation Street was named Best Soap for a second consecutive year, while Skyfall star Ben Whishaw's The Hollow Crown won Best Single Drama.

Lena Dunham's Girls was also feted - the show triumphed over Homeland and Danish political hit Borgen to win the International programme prize.

The ceremony took place at the Grosvenor Hotel in London.
