Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester Concert Nominated for BAFTA
Ariana Grande’s ambitious One Love Manchester benefit concert was a landmark moment for music and charity in 2017, drawing together dozens of music superstars and raising more than $9 million for the Red Cross in the wake of tragedy. Now, the event is up for a 2018 British Academy Television Craft Award.
On Thursday (March 22), the annual BAFTA TV Craft nominations were announced, with One Love Manchester nominated for an Entertainment Craft Team award alongside The Voice UK, Strictly Come Dancing, and World War One Remembered: Passchendaele.
The One Love Manchester fundraiser, which aired June 4, 2017 on the BBC and was broadcast live internationally as well as online via YouTube and Facebook, was organized by Grande after the May 22, 2017 Manchester Arena bombing that killed 22 people and injured hundreds more.
One Love Manchester was held at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground and attended by more than 50,000 people. The event featured performances from Grande, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell, Take That, Little Mix and more.
The BAFTA TV Awards will take place on April 22 and will be streamed on YouTube.
