Richard Madden's Emmy snub disappoints fans, Twitter questions if British actors have a 'cap' for nominations

The Primetime Emmy nominations were declared on Tuesday. HBO's Game of Thrones and Amazon Prime Video's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel led the nominations with 32 and 20 nods respectively.

However, Scottish actor Richard Madden's snub for his poignant performance in BBC's crime thriller The Bodyguard has considerably irked fans on social media, who have openly voiced their disappointment. Many fans blamed the fact that many in the US, which hosts the Emmys, do not watch too many British shows and thus may not have watched the actor's brilliant performance.
