Screen Producers Ireland congratulates SPI member Element Pictures on the Best Original Screenplay nomination for The Lobster. This is the second consecutive year that an Element production has been recognised by the Academy.
SPI also recognises Ruth Negga for her achievement in securing a nomination in the Actress in a Leading Role category for her appearance in Loving and Consolata Boyle for her Costume Design on Florence Foster Jenkins.
SPI CEO Elaine Geraghty said:
“We are thrilled to see Irish talent being recognised by the Oscars again this year. These nominations show that Irish producers and creative talent are making a significant impact on the global stage. The industry has enjoyed considerable success in recent years and we will continue working with members, stakeholders and Government to nurture an environment that allows for continued growth and vibrancy within the independent production sector.
On behalf of Screen Producers Ireland, I would like to wish all concerned the very best of luck on Oscar night.”
