The Crown is up for best drama series alongside Netflix’s chilling crime thriller Ozark, with cast members Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Tom Pelphrey and Julia Garner all nominated in the acting categories.

Other British actors up for awards include Matthew Rhys, recognised for his leading role in period drama Perry Mason, and Cynthia Erivo for her supporting part in horror series The Outsider.
