Colin Farrell is ‘beyond honored’ after landing his first ever Oscar nomination, thanks to his incredible stint in Banshees of Inisherin.
The 46-year-old stars as Pádraic Súilleabháin in the critically acclaimed flick, beside Brendan Gleeson, Barry Keoghan and Kerry Condon – who have also earned nods for their roles.
Celebrating his nomination, he told PA in a statement: ‘[I’m] just so grateful to the Academy for all the love it’s shared with the Banshees’ cast and crew.
‘Also, beyond honored to be lumped together with my fellow nominees. A heartfelt congratulations to all the lads.’
‘What an amazing wake-up call,’ Brendan, his close friend and co-star, agreed.
‘I’m so proud and grateful to be part of The Banshees Of Inisherin on a personal and professional level. I’m absolutely thrilled for the whole brilliant cast and everyone at home.

‘What a day for the Irish film industry on a world stage. Feels like a huge family outing on the cards.
‘Thank you, Academy. Thank you, Martin. Thank you all.’
The Banshees of Inisherin is helmed by Martin McDonagh and follows the story of Pádraic Súilleabháin (Colin), who struggles to come to terms with the fact his best friend Colm Doherty (Brendan) no longer wants to be associated with him.
