Normal People star Daisy Edgar-Jones has admitted she was disappointed to have missed out on an Emmy nomination for her performance in the hit show.

Daisy – who portrays Marianne in the TV adaptation of Sally Rooney’s critically-acclaimed book – was widely considered one of the year’s biggest snubs when the Emmy nominations were announced in July, particularly as her co-star Paul Mescal received a nod.

  Paul Mescal Admits To Feeling 'Objectified' After Normal People's Debut Paul Mescal has admitted that a lot of the attention he received after the debut of Normal People made him rather uncomfortable. The Irish star’s portrayal of Connell in the hit BBC series based on Sally Rooney’s novel of the same name won him a legion of new fans, and an Emmy nomination. However, much was also made of the show’s more sexual scenes, with Paul admitting in a new interview with Elle that he felt “objectified” in the fall-out from the show.“I felt objectified after Normal People,” he said. “It’s to be expected, given the intimacy of my scenes, but it doesn’t make it easier. I daren’t read some of the intense DMs I receive.

Daisy Edgar - Jones has had quite a summer so far. Thanks to the popularity of the BBC adaptation of ' Normal People ', but also hugely down to the dreamy wardrobe of her character, Marianne.

Daisy and Paul were recently reunited at the TV Baftas, posing on the red carpet with a tape measure to show they were sticking to social distancing guidelines.

She noted that despite Normal People’s global success, this marked the first time she and Paul had “done an event together, because everything else we’ve done has been over a laptop camera”.

“It was so lovely to see Paul, from two metres away,” Daisy added.

“We had a quick drink afterwards, but we are still desperate to properly celebrate with the whole crew,” she said.

Chadwick Boseman and Naya Rivera among those honoured during Emmys 'in memoriam' segment .
The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards show, held on Sunday, was much different than the broadcasts have been in years past, but a few things remained the same, including the inclusion of an “in memoriam” segment dedicated to the many entertainment stars lost in the past year. Their photos flashed on a screen as H.E.R. sang a haunting cover of Sinéad O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Producers introduced this year’s roundup with longtime morning talk show host and US host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Regis Philbin, who died in May from coronary heart disease. He was 88.
