The nominations for the 95th Academy Awards have been announced, with plenty of buzz surrounding the titles in the running for Best Film.


One of these is Martin McDonagh’s tragicomedy The Banshees of Inisherin, which bagged a whopping nine nominations, including for Best Film.

The film follows lifelong friends Pádraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm (Brendan Gleeson), who both live on a remote island off the coast of Ireland.

One day, Colm unexpectedly ends their friendship, revealing that he doesn't like Pádraic anymore and doesn't want to speak to him again. Pádraic attempts to fix the relationship, along with his sister Siobhán (Kerry Condon) and friend Dominic (Barry Keoghan), but Colm expresses no interest in reconciliation.

Instead he offers Pádraic an ultimatum, escalating events to dramatic, shocking levels.

Brendan Gleeson, Barry Keoghan and Kerry Condon each received nominations for their supporting roles, while writer-director McDonagh (Bruges) bagged a nomination for best director and best original screenplay. The movie was also nominated for best original score and best editing.

It comes after the film's huge success at the Golden Globe Awards, where it won both the Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and the Best Screenplay – Motion Picture awards, while star Colin Farrell won the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
