02 Dec 2016 : Katie McNeice
'Florence Foster Jenkins'
The annual awards ceremony hosted by T.J. Miller will broadcast live on A&E from Santa Monica on Sunday, December 11th.

‘Loving’ starring Irish talent Ruth Negga continues to garner project-wide nominations, with a nod for Best Picture, Best Actor (Joel Edgerton), Best Actress (Ruth Negga) and Best Original Screenplay (Jeff Nichols).

It contends with leading 2016 titles such as TIFF Audience Award Winner ‘La La Land’ (Damien Chazelle) and recently released ‘Sully’ (Clint Eastwood) starring Tom Hanks. Negga’s fellow nominees include Annette Benning (20th Century Women) and Natalie Portman (Jackie).

Nichols’ category also sees Yorgos Lanthimos and Efthimis Filippou share a Best Original Screenplay nomination for Irish-Greek co-production ‘The Lobster.’

Irish cinematographer Seamus McGarvey (The Accountant) is up for Best Cinematographer for ‘Nocturnal Animals’ (Tom Ford). McGarvey holds four IFTA wins for his work on ‘Anna Karenina’, ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’, ‘Atonement’ and ‘Sahara’ with an additional 2006 nomination for ‘World Trade Center.’

Home-grown talents Consolata Boyle (Florence Foster Jenkins) and Eimer Ni Mhaoldomhnaigh (Love & Friendship) make up a third of the nominees for Best Costume Design. Both have received multiple IFTA nominations, which include five wins for Boyle (Angela’s Ashes, Chéri, The Iron Lady, The Queen and Philomena).

‘Kubo And The Two Strings’ which sees young Irish Actor Art Parkinson voice lead character Kubo, is also nominated for Best Animated Feature. Parkinson is best known for playing Rickon Stark in ‘Game of Thrones.’ This project is also listed as one of twenty-seven projects submitted for Oscar consideration, alongside ‘Angry Birds’ which is co-directed by Fergal Reilly.

‘Drive It Like You Stole It’ from ‘Sing Street’ directed by John Carney is nominated for Best Song. ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ which is firmly on top of the Irish box office with a running total of €1,834,104 stars Colin Farrell, and boasts four nominations for Best Production Design, Best Hair & Makeup, Best Costume Design and Best Visual Effects.
