‘Banshees Of Inisherin’ Win Three Awards At Golden Globes. 

Ms Kerry Condon

As predicted the most nominated film of the year, namely ‘The Banshees of Inisherin’ cleaned up at this year’s Golden Globes.

The rather tragic comedy staged on a remote island off the West coast of Ireland, not surprisingly won ‘Best Actor’ for Colin Farrell’ ‘Best Picture’ and ‘Best Screenplay’ for writer and director Martin McDonagh.

The film had been nominated for a total for eight awards; in fact the most Golden Globe nominations any movie had received in one year; since 2004.

Thanking the director who had made it all possible and while accepting the award for ‘Best Actor’, Mr Farrell said he had been surprised by the film’s success. Director Martin McDonagh and actor Colin Farrell, had previously worked together on, and won Golden Globes for the hit ‘In Bruges’.

The brilliant character performance portrayed by Thurles born actress Ms Kerry Condon, (as Siobhán Súilleabháin), who had been nominated for best supporting actress, sadly lost out to actress Jamie Lee Curtis in ‘Everything, Everywhere, All at Once’.

Many who saw the film were particularly struck by the superb performance given by Dublin born, Mr Barry Keoghan, (as Dominic Kearney), latter who came to prominence in the 2017 film, ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’ and earlier in 2010 in season 4 of ‘Love/Hate; the latter which depicted fictional characters in Dublin’s criminal underworld. This is Barry’s third appearance on film in the company of Colin Farrell.

Sadly, superb performances from both Brendan Gleeson and Barry Keoghan in the film ‘The Banshees of Inisherin’, must wait to be rewarded on another day and at another time.

To date “The Banshees of Inisherin” has grossed some $24.7 million worldwide, and has received nine Oscar nominations.
