Andrew Scott, Cillian Murphy and Barry Keoghan have been nominated for Best Leading Actor in a drama at the 2024 Golden Globe Awards, making half of the nominees Irish. 

Scott was nominated for his role as Adam in the romantic fantasy film All of Us Strangers, starring alongside Irish actor Paul Mescal. The film will be released in Ireland on January 26.

Scott briefly studied drama in Trinity before leaving to join the Abbey Theatre in Dublin.

Murphy was nominated for his leading role in Oppenheimer, the highest-grossing biographical film of all time.

Keoghan was nominated for his role as Oliver in the black comedy Saltburn, where he plays an Oxford student who becomes obsessed with a fellow classmate and his wealthy family.

The Irish actors will compete against Bradley Cooper, Leonardo di Caprio and Colman Domingo at the Golden Globe Awards on January 7.

Greta Gerwig’s comedy Barbie earned the most nominations at nine, while Oppenheimer followed closely behind with eight nominations.

Scott’s nomination was All of Us Strangers’ only Golden Globe nomination, while Saltburn also received a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Rosamund Pike.
