Cillian Murphy was snubbed at the BAFTAs, and Twitter is absolutely raging

“Cillian Murphy not being nominated for a BAFTA properly boils my piss.”

THERE’S NO DENYING that Peaky Blinders has become somewhat of a television phenomenon.


Since its launch on BBC in 2013, the historical crime drama has gripped viewers around the globe, and its fifth season is set to air next year.

Yet despite an acclaimed cast including Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy, and a highly-regarded creator in Stephen Knight, the show only succeeded in securing one BAFTA nomination today – Best Drama.

And people are not happy.


In fact, they’re only bloody raging, and they want everyone on Twitter to know about it.

Their main gripe?  Cillian was snubbed… yet again.

Keen to quell the fury of the masses, one Twitter page has asked everyone to rein it in and channel their very own Cillian.

If he doesn’t care about awards, then neither should we.

We’ll do our best, but it won’t be easy.
