Emmy Awards 2022 has just announced its nominations. All the popular shows from Euphoria to Ozark that occupied our free time have gotten a nomination. You can even find many Emmy favorites on this year’s list as well like Andrew Garfield and Laura Linney! Euphoria Sydney Sweeney also scored a nomination for the first time. Netflix series, Squid Game touched another milestone with 14 all total nominations at the Emmys! And the marquee event has also given a nod to the Marvel series – Loki, Hawkeye, and Moon Knight. However, amidst all this Buzz one particular name is missing – Cillian Murphy. Fans have lauded Murphy’s acting in Peaky Blinders but it has flown under the radar of the awards committees. Now they have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment.
Cillian Murphy fans rage over the actor’s snubbed Emmy nomination
In a recent Twitter post before the official Emmy nominations were announced, fans named favorites. Names like Sadie Sink, Antony Starr, Oscar Isaac, Millie Bobby Brown, John Cena, etc cropped up. However, none mentioned the Irish actor Cillian Murphy. Same with the official nominations list which had every big actor’s name on it except for him.

The Emmy’s skipping the most talented yet “underrated” actor, astonished the fans.
It's so fkin sick that no one even mentioned Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders). It's just another proof that Cillian is still one of the most underrated and underappreciated actors working nowadays. https://t.co/3l7OfQpWkm

The Twitter user further hinted at his disgust at the industry for not recognizing people for their talent and hard work just because they didn’t take part in Hollywood’s publicity events.
tbh I'm not surprised that he couldn't get any nominations for any awards but I'll be fuckin mad and crazy that his talent and hard work are not being appreciated by the industry just because he didn't participate much in Hollywood's shit

Purely dedicated to his art, the actor is quite reclusive and very rarely appears in interviews or talk shows. Others also pointed out that it’s a popularity contest now and one even speculated that actors buy their nominations!
It’s based more on popularity than talent so tbh I am okay with Cilian not being nominated he’s said before that he doesn’t care about that stuff which I admire that of him.

I think they have to pay a fee in order to be considered for the nominations and thats why they haven't been nominated so far, but yeah Cillian performance as Tommy is unmatched definitely

His portrayal of Tommy Shelby is incredibly perfect and seeing that he is continuously ignored by awards like this is so sad, because he deserves all the acknowledgment for being so uniquely talented and dedicated to his craft

It’s mind boggling how this show and Cillian don’t get the awards they so deserved. I really don’t get it.

Jason Statham almost played Tommy Shelby
Murphy gained critical acclaim with his turn as the kingpin of a criminal family in Birmingham on Peaky Blinders. But he almost lost out the role to Jason Statham. After fierce competition and some persuasion, Murphy got the coveted role.
The show concluded after nearly running for 9 years. But it isn’t the end of the scheming Shelby family – there’s a movie in the works.

I don’t believe Peaky Blinders was eligible this year because it debuted in the USA after 5/31/22.
