The Irish Film & Television Academy (IFTA) will hand out its prizes on April 20 in Dublin.

More from Deadline

In what was a banner year for Irish talent, there are several awards season notables vying for Best Actor as well, including Oppenheimer Oscar winner Cillian Murphy, Saltburn’s Barry Keoghan and All of Us Strangers’ Andrew Scott.

The Best International Film race includes All of Us Strangers, Oppenheimer, Past Lives, Poor Things, Saltburn and The Holdovers. While Barbie missed out on a nomination in that category, both Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling factor in their respective international acting fields — as does Poor Things Oscar winner Emma Stone.

As previously announced, Stephen Rea has been set to receive the Irish Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement.

IFTA CEO, Áine Moriarty commented, “What an incredible showcase of nominees shortlisted for Irish Academy Awards this year. Irish talents are proving themselves to be amongst the best in the world, both in front and behind the camera, delivering such high standards of acting, filmmaking, and storytelling. We in the Irish Academy, are proud to showcase this industry’s great work and to reward their achievements.”
