He faces tough competition with Michael Fassbender (“Shame”), Brendan Gleeson (“The Guard”) and Ciaran Hinds (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) all nominated for the best actor award.

John Michael McDonagh’s “The Guard”, Terry McMahon’s “Charlie Casanova”, and ThaddeusO’Sullivan’s “Stella Days” are all up for best film director and best film awards.

In fact it seems like “The Guard” is going to dominate the awards this year, receiving nine nominations in all.

Saoirse Ronan  is nominated for the best actress category for her role in “Hanna”. She’s competing with Aoife Duffin (“Behold The Lamb”), Antonia Campbell Hughes (“The Other Side of Sleep”) and Marcella Plunkett (“Stella Days”).

The awards, the Irish version of the Academy Awards held in LA, are given out annually. They celebrate Irish talent in movies and TV.

The awards will be presented by actor Simon Delaney (“Zonad”) on 11th February.
