Films with an Irish connection at tonight’s Oscars

Best of luck to all films with an Irish connection at tonight’s Oscars.

Albert Nobbs is up in 3 categories Best Actress (Glenn Close), Best Supporting Actress (Janet McTeer) and Best Make Up (Martial Corneville, Lynn Johnston and Matthew W. Mungle). Produced by Parallel films and filmed almost entirely at Cabinteely House, and other Dublin locations.

In Best Short (Live Action) there were two Irish nominations, Director Peter McDonald’s and producer Eimear O’KanePentecost’, and Terry George’s ‘The Shore’

Peter Devlin’s nomination for his work on ‘Transformers

Tom Johnson, resident of Roundwood and of Ardmore Sound, for Best Sound Mixing  ‘War Horse

And No! Meryl Streep  is not Irish but costume design on the Iron Lady was by  Dublin’s  own Consolata Boyle.

Good luck to all nominees, but The Artist seems certain to walk away the big winner in 2012.
