Jessie Buckley looks set for success at the Irish Film and Television Academy Awards (IFTAs) after landing three nominations on Tuesday.
“The Beast” star and “Calm With Horses” actress Niamh Algar bagged the most nods in IFTA’s acting categories too, with Jessie nominated for leading actress in both a film and drama for “Wild Rose” and “The Woman in White“, and also landing a supporting actress in a drama nod for “Chernobyl“.
Niamh will compete against Jessie in two categories, with her performance in “Pure” earning her a supporting actress in a drama nomination, and her leading role in TV drama “The Virtues” also receiving recognition. Her performance in “Calm With Horses” also bagged her a nod for supporting actress in the film section.
Another notable nominee is Saoirse Ronan for “Little Women“, who will compete against Jessie, Aisling Franciosi (“The Nightingale”), Bronagh Gallagher (“A Bump Along the Way“), Sarah Greene (“Rosie”), and Seana Kerslake (“The Hole in the Ground“) for the leading actress in a film prize.
Organisers are currently finalising plans for a bespoke virtual 2020 Awards Ceremony scheduled for September.
