Viewers felt outraged after It’s a sin did not win any of that year’s main BAFTA TV awards, saying the series was “stolen”.
The show has been nominated for a number of major accolades, including Miniseries, Lead Actor (Olly Alexander), Lead Actress (Lydia West) and Supporting Actor (Callum Scott Howells, David Carlyle and Omari Douglas).
However, he failed to win in any of these categories, losing to the likes of Weather, To helpis Jodie Comer and Succession starring Matthew McFadyen.
While Peter Hoar won Best Director: Fiction and Sarah Brewerton received the Editing: Fiction gong for her work in the series, fans were disappointed that the hugely popular Channel 4 series did not win either of the most grand prizes of the ceremony.
One tweeted: “How did It’s A Sin win nothing at #BAFTAs? HOW? ‘OR’ WHAT ? »
Someone else asked, “How has It’s a Sin not won a single award yet tonight?” Wtf #BAFTAs. »
A third wrote: “This is a sin that has been completely stolen from #BAFTAS. »
A fourth added: “I really wasn’t a fan of It’s A Sin but really surprised he didn’t win anything tonight #BAFTAS. »
It’s a sin to be really snubbed and robbed tonight 😡 #Baftas

Still, series creator Russell T. Davies has had quite a busy day – after announcing the star who will take on the iconic Doctor Who role when Jodie Whittaker steps down later this year.
Speaking to 45secondes.fr on the BAFTA red carpet earlier today, Davies said:
Explaining how Ncuti Gatwa landed the role, Davies told 45secondes.fr: “It was an audition. He came in to audition and he was the last person to audition – I thought we had someone else, and then he came in and it was like, ‘Wow. That’s it.’
“And then I have to tell all my bosses, and then every step of the way I’m like, ‘Please love it, please love it. And every person loved him.
“It was the easiest casting process in the world. Yes instant. I was so happy. »
Gatwa also told us, “They contacted my team to ask me to audition, but it was really weird because the week before, I had just randomly said to my agent, ‘A dream role would be Doctor. Who’, and then the next week she called me and she was like, ‘You’ll never guess who just asked you to audition.
“So dream big and manifest. Manifestation is the turning key! »
Gatwa said he was “over the moon”, adding: “It’s really exciting – I’m so happy to finally talk about it! Because I’ve known him for a long time, and so yes I’m glad it came out.
“I’m so grateful to share the tenure with Russell as well, he’s just the most amazing writer. I really fell in love with his writing in terms of watching the show. I just think he’s amazing, and so I feel very honored to be part of it. »
