Forget McGregor in Vegas - Tinseltown could be subject to the next Irish invasion!
2015 has been an outstanding year in Irish film talent and the prestigious Oscar Nominations have just proved that!
Saoirse Ronan (pictured), Michael Fassbender, Lenny Abrahamson and Emma Donoghue are all nominated individually, while both Brooklyn and Room are up for Best Film.
For posterity, the list is below:
Best Adapted Screenplay – Emma Donoghue, Room
Best Director – Lenny Abrahamson
Best Actress – Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn
Best Actor – Micheal Fassbender, Steve Jobs
Best Film – Brooklyn and Room
And it’s important to note that although she mightn’t be Irish, it was Room that sees Brie Larson installed as favourite for Best Actress - though we'll stop short of trying to claim her as our own!
Our eyes will be glued to the screens and our fingers will be crossed as the 88th Academy Awards will take place on February 28th.
