Normal People fails to land Emmy Awards

Ireland missed out at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles last night.


There was no luck for the Normal People TV dram which was filmed in Tubbercurry in County Sligo. The hugely popular tv series was nominated in four categories.


Paul Mescal lost out to Mark Ruffalo for the award for Lead Actor in a Limited Series.


Fiona Shaw and Andrew Scott also missed out in their acting categories.


Variety’s Senior Vice President and Awards Editor Tim Gray says being nominated is still an achievement.
