BAFTA TV Awards viewers were left feeling fed up as It’s A Sin missed out on several awards. Fans claim the Channel 4 series, which starred Olly Alexander and Lydia West, was “robbed”.
Going into the ceremony, It’s A Sin led the star-studded list of nominees, with 11 nods across several categories. However, despite being nominated for awards including Best Mini-Series and Best Supporting Actor, the awards went instead to the likes of BBC’s Time and Succession actor Matthew Macfadyen.
Set in 1980s London, Russell T Davies’ series follows a group of young adults living during the HIV/Aids crisis. It’s A Sin was also nominated for Best Limited Series category and Virgin Media’s Must-See Moment.

And Meg @meg_garratt fumed: “Why does It’s A Sin keep getting snubbed??”
