Oh dear - Jamie Dornan's fans are kicking up a stink after BAFTA TV Awards snub

The BAFTA TV Awards 2015 nominations have only just been announced but there’s already a bit of controversy kicking off on Twitter over a MAJOR snub.

Jamie Dornan wowed viewers and critics alike with his chilling performance in the BBC Two drama series The Fall last year but NEITHER he nor the programme are in the running for gongs, something which has really not gone down well with fans on social media.

‘Cant believe nominations @BAFTA no @JamieDornan or @TheFallTV,’ one wrote, whilst another shocked admirer commented: ‘I’d love2 know what criteria @BAFTA are looking for when choosing. @JamieDornan is astounding’

One ‘fuming’ Twitter user even blasted the rebuke as an ‘absolute joke’. Yikes!

Others expressed hope that Jamie, 32, will instead be nominated for an Emmy Award for his role as serial killer Paul Spector but lots of his fans know that he’s their winner with or without a prize.

‘I don’t need any award to prove that @JamieDornan and @TheFallTV are good. Jamie, the cast & crew, and the show are brilliant! 🙌😎,’ one follower kindly Tweeted.

Jamie doesn’t seem to have much luck at the BAFTA TV Awards. He was in the running for the Best Leading Actor category at last year’s ceremony but lost out to Sean Harris from the drama Southcliffe. Maybe next year, Jamie?

Benedict Cumberbatch is amongst the famous names battling it out for the gong this year – he’s been given a nod for his performance in Sherlock, which is also up for the Radio Times Audience Award.

Meanwhile Sheridan Smith has been nominated for Best Leading Actress for her role in Cilla whilst Ant And Dec are up for Best Entertainment Performance. It could be a big night for the lads as their shows Saturday Night Takeaway and I’m A Celebrity have also been given a look-in. So even though there’s no Jamie Dornan (sob!) it sounds like there’s plenty to look forward to!

The ceremony takes place at London’s Theatre Royal on Sunday 10 May.
