The annual poll by BBC Culture is performed by movie critics and industry specialists from around the globe, who pick the best certificates in a particular category. Though prior years saw listicles like greatest movies directed by women and best non-English language films, the curators agreed to turn the spotlight on TV shows in 2021. This, keeping in view the role played by the small screen in the last two years during the coronavirus pandemic.
