Fans have expressed their disappointment after Normal People was snubbed at the Emmy Awards 2020.
The award ceremony took place virtually on Sunday night, with the hit series receiving four Emmy nominations in total.
Paul Mescal was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series for his role as Connell Waldron in the show, while Lenny Abrahamson was nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series.
Normal People author Sally Rooney and screenwriter Alice Birch were also nominated in the Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series category, and Louise Kiely was nominated for Outstanding Casting for a Limited Series.
After failing to take home any of the awards at the ceremony, fans took to Twitter to share their disappointment – with one fan writing: “Good morning to everyone except the #Emmys for not giving @mescal_paul and @normalpeople the recognition they deserve.”
