Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch failed to grab a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award Sunday for another year in a row. The Best Actor award instead went to Jason Watkins for his role in The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies.

For Cumberbatch, a three-time Emmy winner, the prestigious British prize remains perennially elusive.

Cumberbatch, featured in 2014’s TIME 100, did not attend the ceremony.

His name has been thrown into the ring three times now for Sherlock — more than any other actor competing in the BAFTA’s top categories. Overall, it has not been a fruitful awards season for the Brit, who also failed to grab an Oscar in February.
