Everyone's devastated that Richard Madden didn't get an Emmy nom for Bodyguard

A crying shame.

Yesterday, the Emmy nominations were released.

There were a lot of good shouts included in there, like When They See Us getting the recognition it deserves, Game of Thrones blowing everybody away with its reams of talent, and the comedy series category probably being the strongest its ever been.

Also nominated for best outstanding series was BBC's Bodyguard - and rightly so.

There was, however, a blatantly obvious snub amidst all of the British thriller love: the fact that Richard Madden wasn't nominated for best actor, when he absolutely should have been.

The Scottish actor has been blowing away audiences with his incredible portrayal of David Budd since Bodyguard first landed on Netflix (or before, if you managed to catch it when it aired on BBC).

The emotion, the grit, and the sheer intensity of his performance made the series more gripping than any other drama on the g0.

He had us completely sold (and let's be honest, a bit in love). And yet, his talent has not been recognised.

Well, like, it has been recognised by the general public and lots of critics and stuff, but by the Emmys?

Nah mate, never heard of it.

People were, understandably, mildly enraged by the lack of nomination even though Madden himself is probably fine with it.

They took to Twitter to air their grievances.

... And so did we.

Justice for Richard.
