'Love/Hate' dominates Ifta nominations

Multiple award-winner Love/Hate is nominated in 10 categories for its third series which ended before Christmas.

Multiple award-winner Love/Hate is nominated in 10 categories for its third series which ended before Christmas.

What Richard Did, the drama which features a middle-class, rugby-playing teenager caught up in a killing, has been nominated for 10 awards including best film, best director and best actor for Jack Reynor.

Reynor’s performance has helped secure for him the lead role in the latest installment of the Hollywood blockbuster franchise Transformers.

Grabbers, the film about an island people who have to stay drunk to ward off predatory sea creatures, has four nominations as does the Troubles drama Shadow Dancer.

Death of a Superhero, a film about a 15-year-old boy is dying of terminal cancer, has received three nominations.

Robert Sheehan and Tom Vaughan Lawlor, the stars of Love/Hate, are nominated in the best actor category.

Moone Boy, actor Chris O’Dowd’s autobiographical take on growing up in Boyle, Co Roscommon, has five nominations.

TV3, which has shunned the awards in past years, is nominated for four awards. Tonight with Vincent Browne and Midweek’s Rural Ireland Fights Back have both been selected in the current affairs category while the Irish version of Come Dine with Me is nominated in the best reality television category.

TV3 had complained in previous years about being overlooked for awards, but a TV3 spokeswoman said they had resolved their differences with Ifta.

The British Academy of Film and Television Awards (Bafta) also featured considerable Irish interest this morning.

Martin McDonagh was nominated for best British film for Seven Psychopaths, Daniel Day Lewis was nominated for best actor for his part as Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln and Irish animator Eamonn O’Neill was nominated in the best short animation category for I’m Fine Thanks.

Lincoln dominates the Bafta's with 10 nominations. It is released in Ireland later this month.
