There has been six Irish related nominations for the Golden Globes this year and Glen Hansard has also received a nomination for the Grammys.
Irish Film Board supported productions received four nominations. Room by Lenny Abrahamson was nominated for Best Motion Picture. Saoirse Ronan was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture in the film Brooklyn, and Brie Larson was nominated in the same category for Room.
Room also received yet another nomination with Emma Donoghue being nominated for Best Screenplay.
Kerry man Michael Fassbender also received a nomination for his role in Steve Jobs in the category of Best Actor in a Motion Picture. Caitriona Balfe received a nomination in the category of Best Actress in a TV series for Outlander.
Eva Green was also nominated for her role in Penny Dreadful in the same category, which was shot on location in Dublin.
Glen Hansard's solo album Didn’t He Ramble was nominated in the Best Folk Album category for the 58th Grammy Awards.
It would be great if the Irish came away with a few awards from that list of nominations.
