McDonagh has also been shortlisted for Best Director and Best Screenplay.
Condon has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress while Gleeson and Keoghan have been nominated for Best Supporting Actor. Farrell meanwhile, has been nominated in the leading actor role.
Composer Carter Burwell has also been nominated for the Best Original Score.
The movie has received rave reviews since its release in late October with many more award nominations predicted for the cast and crew. It has had an uplifting effect on Achill’s tourism, with a ‘Banshees’ trail now launched for visitors to see the iconic locations from the movie.
