Writer-director Martin McDonagh and stars Kerry Condon was nominated as Best Supporting Actress, while Colin Farrell nabbed the Best Actor nomination, Brendan Gleeson, and Barry Keoghan are both up for Best Supporting Actor.
Irish language film An Cailín Ciúin has received nominations for Best Film Not in the English Language as well as Best Adapted Screenplay for its writer-director, Colm Bairéad, whose heart-rending drama is based on the Claire Keegan book Foster.
