Oscars 2023: An Irish Goodbye celebrates Oscar win with an on-stage rendition of Happy Birthday for actor James Martin
13 Mar 2023 : Nathan Griffin
An Irish Goodbye wins Best Live-Action Short.
Tom Berkeley and Ross White’s heartfelt Northern Irish short film An Irish Goodbye has won the Academy Award for Best Live-Action Short and at the 95th ceremony in Los Angeles.

In an incredibly wholesome moment, the writer-directors who were joined on stage by their leading actors James Martin and Seamus O’Hara, dedicated their speech time to ask the entire auditorium to join them in singing happy birthday to Martin.

The big winner on the night was Everything, Everywhere, All At Once, which won seven Academy Awards.

The second Irish representative to receive an Academy Award was Richard Baneham, who alongside his Visual Effects team (Joe Letteri, Eric Saindon, and Daniel Barrett), won Best Achievement in Visual Effects for Avatar: The Way of Water, beating All Quiet On The Western Front, Top Gun: Maverick, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and The Batman.

Best Picture nominee All Quiet On Western Front picked up the Best International Film Award, beating Ireland’s entry An Cailín Ciúin. This in turn brought to an end the amazing journey of Ireland’s first ever Oscar nominated Irish language film. Other films in the category included Close, Argentina, 1985, and EO.

Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy drama, The Banshees of Inisherin, was among this year’s frontrunners with 9 nominations including Best Motion Picture and four first-time nominations for each of the Irish leading ensemble cast, but failed to pick up a single award on the night.

In the acting category, the previous SAG Awards winners proved a clear indicator with Key Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis from Everything, Everywhere, All At Once both receiving their first every Academy Award for Supporting Actor and Actress. The bilingual Chinese-American feature emerged as outright favourite following the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) where the cast made history with four awards and the Producers Guild of America (PGA) awards where it picked up Best Picture.

Quan overcame Banshees stars Brendan Gleeson and Barry Keoghan, as well as Judd Hirsch (The Fablemans), and Brian Tyree Henry (Causeway), while Curtis pipped Kerry Condon (Banshees), Angela Bassett (Black Panther), Stephanie Hsu (Everything, Everywhere), and Hong Chau (The Whale).

For Best Actor, first-time nominated Irish actors Colin Farrell (Banshees) and Paul Mescal (Aftersun) missed out on an Academy Award to another SAG Award winner, Brendan Fraser for his performance in The Whale, who also beat Austin Butler (Elvis) and Bill Nighy (Living).

The Banshees of Inisherin writer/director Martin McDonagh, who was nominated for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, missed out on both Academy Awards to Everything, Everywhere, All At Once writer/directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinart.

Irish editor Jonathan Redmond, nominated alongside Matt Villa for their work on Elvis, was beaten by Everything, Everywhere, All At Once editor Paul Rodgers.

Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the winners of the 95th Academy Awards were announced at a live ceremony on Sunday night, March 12th, televised live on ABC in the US and Sky Cinema in Ireland.

RTÉ will broadcast the ceremony on RTÉ2 on Monday night at 9:30pm.
