“Banshees” and “An Cailín Ciúin” earn multiple BAFTA film nominations

Words: Ellen Kenny

“The Banshees of Inisherin” and “An Cailín Ciúin” are among the BAFTA film nominees showing the strength of Irish talent.

Irish actors and filmmakers have received a total of 14 nominations at the British Academy Film Awards, also known as the BAFTA film awards.

“The Banshees of Inisherin” received 10 nominations, including Best Film, Best Leading Actor for Colin Farrell, Best Supporting Actress for Kerry Condon, and Best Supporting Actor for both Brendon Gleeson and Barry Keoghan.

“Banshees” previously earned five nominations and three wins at the Golden Globes, so their success at the BAFTAs are no surprise.

Irish language film “An Cailín Ciúin” also received two nominations for Best Film Not in the English Language and Best Adapted Screenplay. “An Cailín Ciúin”, referred to as “The Quiet Girl” in the BAFTA nominees, was written and directed by Colm Bairéad and is based on an English-language short story “Foster”.

“An Cailín Ciúin” did not receive a Golden Globe nomination this year, but has been shortlisted for an Academy Award. Leading entertainment magazine Variety predicted the film as a likely nominee at the Oscars.

Irish actor Paul Mescal was also nominated for Best Leading Actor for his role in “Aftersun”, pinning him against Colin Farrell. May the best Irishman with the biggest eyebrows win.

Tipperary actor Daryl McCormack also earned a nomination for BAFTA Rising Star following his role as a male sex worker in “Good to You, Leo Grande”. This is the only category voted by the British public, so hopefully enough Irish diaspora will get on this.

The BAFTA Film Awards ceremony will take place on February 19. The BAFTA TV Awards, which may see Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson and Irish black comedy show “Bad Sisters” nominated, take place on May 14.
