BAFTA viewers are all saying the same thing about It’s a Sin’s ‘ignorant’ snub at the awards ceremony.
The Russell T Davies drama, which follows a group of young adults during the HIV/AIDs crisis in the 1980s, was nominated for 11 awards in five categories but came home empty-handed.
After watching the award show, many fans took to Twitter and slammed the decision, with some even branding the organisation ‘homophobic’.

One wrote: “I’m really surprised to hear that It’s a Sin didn’t win any of the BAFTAs it was nominated for. It was very well acted and Russell T Davies is an absolute master at character writing and story.”
“How did It’s a Sin miss out at the BAFTAS?” asked another. “Powerful drama with the rare power to be transformative: for me, making sense of aspects of my youth, and a space to remember those who we lost.”
A third added: “The It’s a Sin cast were robbed, one of the best dramas I have seen ever. It should have swept the board. Ridiculous.”
“Homophobia and #AIDS ignorance alive and well as demonstrated by muting of #itsasin clips and no awards despite so many nominations – so sad,” a fourth fumed.
However, the snub didn’t appear to dampen the mood of It’s a Sin’s cast, who took to social media and shared a photo during the ceremony.
Davies captioned the post: “Look at these winners. We had a very happy night. Great shows won and great shows didn’t, and UK TV is wonderful. Long live #ItsASin La!”
