“Banshees of Inisherin” – Eight Nominations Ahead of Annual Golden Globes.

Kerry Condon, Colin Farrell, Barry Keoghan and Brendan Gleeson have all been nominated for top awards ahead of this year’s annual Golden Globes ceremony.

The awards are expected to be televised and hosted by comedian Jerrod Carmichael, on Tuesday January 10th, 2023.

Note: Brendan Gleeson and Kerry Condon are no strangers to Thurles, Co. Tipperary, with the latter named, born and educated here in our Cathedral Town.

Colin Farrell will compete for ‘Best actor’, while Barry Keoghan and Brendan Gleeson will compete against each other for ‘Best Supporting Actor’.
Our very own Kerry Condon, not suprisingly, will compete against Angela Bassett; Jamie Lee Curtis; Dolly De Leon and Carey Mulligan, for the title of ‘Best Supporting Actress’.

Director Martin McDonagh [Remember “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”] was nominated in the ‘Best Director’ category.

The Banshees of Inisherin, the most nominated title this year, is also up for best score, best screenplay and best picture.

Nominees for Best Picture are:-
Babylon, (Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie).
The Banshees of Inisherin, (See above).
Everything Everywhere All at Once, (Absurdist comedy-drama film written and directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert).
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, (sequel to the 2019 film “Knives Out”, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as master detective Benoit Blanc).
Triangle of Sadness
, (A satirical black comedy film written and directed by Ruben Östlund, featuring the late Charlbi Dean, who passed away in August last, 2022).

The Banshees of Inisherin“, story tells of a pair of lifelong friends, on a remote Irish island, (set on the Irish Arran Islands), who find themselves at an awkward period in their relationship, when one of them no longer wants to be friends with the other.
Pádraic (played by Colin Farrell), latter an affable and kind man living on a fictional remote island known as Inisherin, suddenly has his world seriously shaken when his former close friend Colm (latter played by Brendan Gleeson), chooses to cut off their previously enjoyed, lifelong friendship.
What begins as a minor squabble between both of these former old friends, soon sends shockwaves throughout their small close-knit community, thus causing everyone, from Pádraic’s sister Siobhán (Played by Thurles born Kerry Condon) to the local parish priest, to inquire as to the cause of Colm’s sudden active hatred.

    George. Just watched Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell on the morning show. Talking about ‘The Banshees of Inisherin. Its looks very funny.

    While a few of the ‘trailer’ clips have funny interactions, I assure you this is NOT a comedy movie. It grows dark early and stays there.
    I understand that Brendan Gleason played his own fiddle. Good luck on the awards. Well done.
