He wasn't a winner, but it has to be said that he has a winning plant.

The Paul Mescal Emmy nomination will remain just that for now - a nomination. But to be up amongst some of Hollywood's biggest heavy-hitters for his debut role is nothing to be scoffed at - it'll be the first of many nominations, we are sure of it.

Last night's virtual Emmys saw the Irishman up against Hugh Jackman, Jeremy Irons, Jeremy Pope, and Mark Ruffalo for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie - with Ruffalo coming out on top for 'I Know This Much Is True'. Making the most of live-streaming the event from his home, at least he looked very much the part, dressed up in Luis Vuitton on the night.

Ruffalo's performance was tipped to win last night, but that doesn't mean that the internet can't let it be known who it thinks was robbed of the award. In fact, the series that threw Mescal into the spotlight, 'Normal People', failed to secure any of its four nominations. The series deserved better.

Here are some of the best tweets from fans who are shocked at his non-win - and how much they appreciated his lovely plant in the background.
