We’re sure we’re not the only ones who felt cheated as Idris Elba lost out to Barry Pepper at the Emmy awards last night.

Elba was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Miniseries Or A Movie for his performance in Luther, alongside Laurence Fishburne, William Hurt and some other men we really don’t care about.

The talened actor was also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series, losing again as the award went to Justin Timberlake.

We’re starting to sense a conspiracy here. But Idris if you need a shoulder to cry on, or arms to caress you, you know where to find me.

Do you think Idris Elba should have won an award for Luther?
