This morning, Ryan Tubridy spoke to homegrown hero Domhnall Gleeson about his role in Star Wars. During their chat, Gleeson outlined a rather awkward experience he had at the British Independent Film Awards last week.

Gleeson was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Ex Machina. Among the other nominees? His father Brendan Gleeson.

I was nominated against my father in the Best Supporting Actor category. I lost to him. My Dad was not there. I had to walk up to the podium to accept the award.

All going well so far…

On the way up, they said, “Here to accept the award is the film’s director Sarah Gavron”. I was already up there. 


Alicia Vikander — the lady presenting the trophy — her mouth opened in horror because she thought that I had heard the wrong name and was strutting up because I thought I had won.

He continued on his path, however, and read out an acceptance speech sent to him by the elder Gleeson. He described it as “one of the more awkward experiences of my life”.

And it got worse.

Later on that night, Tom Hardy won Best Actor and he organised for my name to be called out again to collect the award for him even though I had nothing to do with the film he won for. So I went up on stage twice to accept awards I didn’t win.

Morto. (RTÉ Radio 1)

Is Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s marriage in trouble? Maybe. 

This morning, 3AM reports that the X Factor judge is experiencing “serious problems” in her marriage with Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

It’s very sad and they’re trying to make it work. A lot of us thought she might move towards taking some sort of break earlier this year but she decided to give the relationship another go and try to make it work.

The couple reportedly haven’t been seen out and about since July.
