"The Crown" actress Claire Foy (pictured here) is leaving the Netflix series in Season 3.
Deadline reported Claire Foy, who stars as Queen Elizabeth in the series, was nominated for Best Lead Actress, and seems like the favorite to take home the award.
The best actor category sees Benedict Cumberbatch pick up his fifth TV Bafta nomination for The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses, competing against three-time Bafta victor Robbie Coltrane for his lead in the Yewtree-inspired drama National Treasure.
The show's lead actor, Matt Smith, missed out on a nomination.
Benedict Cumberbatch is on Bafta's list of leading actors for his role in The Hollow Crown, alongside Robbie Coltrane in National Treasure, Adeel Akhtar in Murdered By My Father and Babou Ceesay in Damilola, Our Loved Boy. He has also been nomination for a BAFTA film award.
The Crown isn't Netflix's only BAFTA nominee either, with sci-fi hit Stranger Things looking to take the honours in the worldwide category.

Next in line were crime drama Happy Valley and black comedy Fleabag, which both scored three nominations. It was Colman's sixth nomination in six years; she has won three British Academy Television Awards.
Meanwhile, Foy faces competition in her category from Thirteen's Jodie Comer, NW's Nikki Amuka-Bird and Happy Valley's Sarah Lancashire. The show's only nomination Tuesday came for Tom Hollander, who will compete in the supporting actor category.
Notable for its absence among the nominees however was The Night Manager, which despite picking up Golden Globes and being an worldwide hit for the BBC, received only one nomination - best supporting actor for Tom Hollander - while both Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie missed out.
The full line-up of nominations was announced by actors Andrew Buchan and Michaela Coel during an event at Bafta's central London headquarters on Tuesday morning.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony hosted by Sue Perkins on Sunday 14 May.
