Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender will be walking down the red carpet with his mother at the 86th Academy Awards ceremony in LA tonight. He’ll be leaving his girlfriend, model Madalina Ghenea, at home.
The 36-year-old actor, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in ’12 Years a Slave,’ has decided to bring his mother Adele from Larne, Co. Antrim and his sister Catherine as his dates for the night.
The Irish Independent reports that Ireland is “holding its breath” to see if the star will win, with students and teachers at St Brendan’s College in Killarney preparing to tune in to the ceremony to watch the actor, a former pupil at the school, compete for the prestigious award.
