Speaking to Dermot and Dave, director of the show Lenny Abrahamson revealed that he didn't even realise that he had been nominated for the award until he got a phone call to congratulate him.

The Academy Award nominated director also gave us some info on the next Sally Rooney adaptation we're likely to see and of course, we had to ask...will we see Connell and Marianne again?
