The good news: Sherlock: The Abominable Bride won Best Television Movie at Sunday night's 2016 Emmys.

The bad news: while accepting the award, Amanda Abbington (far left in the photo above), who plays Mary Watson in the film, lost her purse. According to Abbington's tweets, when she was onstage with producer Steven Moffat and the crew, the actor says that her bag was "nicked" by a thief in the audience.

And, according to the actor, the purse wasn't just misplaced. She replied to a fan and said she looked everywhere for the bag.

Not cool.
