“The Favourite”, animation short “Late Afternoon” and “Detainment” see Irish well represented in Oscar nominations announcement in Beverley Hills.

Irish produced period dark comedy “The Favourite”, Cartoon Saloon animated short “Late Afternoon” and Robbie Ryan cinematographer on the movie “Detainment” saw Ireland bag 12 Oscar nominations ahead of Feb 24, the 91st Academy Awards ceremony.

“The Favourite” starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, was co-produced by Dublin company Element Pictures. The period drama, with a dark comedy twist, tied in the nominations stakes with the Mexican drama “Roma” for most nominations, with both movies receiving a whopping ten nods.

Following her Golden Globe win, lead actress Olivia Colman continues to impress with another nomination with best-supporting actress noms for both Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone.  Irishman Robbie Ryan was honored with a nomination for cinematography and Yorgos Lanthimos is up for best director.

“The Favourite”  also secured a nomination in the hotly-contested best picture category. This is Element Picture’s second best-picture nomination at the Oscars, following their “Room” nomination three years ago. Element Pictures is the only Irish company to ever have secured two best picture nominations and with 10 nominations for “The Favourite”  it is now the most nominated Irish film ever at the Oscars.

The Kilkenny animation studio, Cartoon Saloon, has been nominated for Best Animated Short with the movie “Late Afternoon”. The movie examines the topic of dementia as it follows Emily, an elderly woman as she drifts back through her memories and relives her past.

Irish filmmaker Vincent Lambe is among the nominees for Best Live Action Short for his controversial film Detainment, which is based on the transcripts from the James Bulger case.

The 91st Oscars® will be held on Sunday, February 24th, 2019, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
