Benedict Cumberbatch and Olivia Colman have been nominated for a National Television Award 2014.
The Sherlock star and the Broadchurch actress will go head-to-head for the new TV Detective gong at this year's ceremony, taking place at London's o2 on Wednesday January 22.
Idris Elba will also battle it out for the prize after being recognised for his role in Luther, along with Bradley Walsh for Law & Order UK, Suranne Jones for Scott & Bailey and David Tennant for his part in Broadchurch.
Meanwhile, Ant and Dec could receive their thirteenth consecutive best presenter award after receiving a flood of nominations, but they will have to fight off stiff competition from Keith Lemon, Graham Norton, Alan Carr and Dermot O'Leary.
Despite a dip in ratings this year, The X Factor has been short-listed for the Talent Show prize, along with rival show Strictly Come Dancing, Britain's Got Talent and The Voice UK.
Long-standing rivals EastEnders and Coronation Street will fight against each other, along with Emmerdale and Hollyoaks, to be crowned the winner of the Serial Drama category. While Broadchurch will battle it out against Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife, and Doctor Who for the Best Drama award.
The National Television Awards will be hosted by Dermot O'Leary and the winners will be chosen by the public in a nationwide poll.
