Barry Keoghan is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, so it came as no surprise when he landed a nomination at this year’s Golden Globes for The Banshees of Inisherin.
As one of the biggest nights in showbiz, honouring both film and television, its an extremely prestigious event, and one which Barry absolutely loved being a part of.
Telling Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast: “It was my first time ever in a room like that, you know full of people that I admire. As well and you know and just the energy.”
Confessing that he had been a fan of The Golden Globe Award Show since he was a child.
As he shared: “It’s exciting to be here in LA and to witness that [award show] last night, you know just the whole…just to be a part of it, it was just amazing and because I used to watch these shows as a kid.”
“Being part of it last night I was just like a young boy and a fanboy basically. Like ‘I’ve seen Spielberg, Tarantino, I’ve seen I’ve seen all of them!'”
The 30-year-old also revealed some of the stars he got to mingle with on the night, sharing the sweet conversation he had with legendary director Steven Spielberg.
The pair originally met in 2017 when Barry was auditioning for Steven’s film, Ready Player One. While Barry didn’t land a part in the project, when he re-introduced himself to Steven at the award show, the director had only good things to say.
As Barry explained: “I said it to him last night, and he’s like oh ‘of course I remember’.”
“He’s like, ‘but I love you buddy. I think you’re great’ and you know just to have that exchange and he’s one of the greats man.”
“I was just buzzing last night, I was really buzzing.”
