Sing Street, a musical comedy set in 1980s Dublin, is nominated for Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical. The film, directed by Once’s John Carney, faces steep competition from the likes of La La Land, Deadpool, Florence Foster Jenkins and 20th Century Women.

Chief Executive of Irish Film Board, James Hickey, congratulated the nominees on their “incredible achievement”.

“Sing Street and The Lobster are supported by the IFB and we are very proud of the teams behind each film,” he said. “John Carney’s Sing Street is filmed in Dublin featuring a host of up-and-coming Irish talent and has brought an Irish story to audiences worldwide with great success. Colin Farrell gives a mesmerising performance in theThe Lobster, a film which has brought images of Kerry around the world. I’m also delighted to see Ruth Negga receive worldwide success with her performance in Loving having begun her career on Irish projects including numerous IFB-funded films and Catriona Balfe for her performance in Outlander.”
