The traditional awards ceremony of the Irish Film and Television Academy was broadcast last night on Virgin Media One, hosted by Deirdre O’Kane.

After a one-year break and the subsequent reorganisation process that brought the body to approve a five-year strategic development plan for the period 2020-2024, the prestigious event was finally back and ready to award, as a one-time exception, the best productions and talents of the entire 2019/2020 season.

Both accolades were handed out by legendary director Martin Scorsese. Speaking about the difficult times we live in, Scorsese said: “Little did we know what strange times lay ahead that we are witnessing now, and it appears to me that we are all having to reinvent cinema now, and that’s a good thing, it is. Because now, more than ever, we need the moving image. We need vision, creativity and storytelling that takes us on a journey and opens us, enlightens us, opens our hearts and our minds, and there’s something about Ireland and Irish storytelling that is universal, that connects with everyone in the world. John Ford knew that, and I know that.”

Other big victors were thesps Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (recipient of the prize for the best actor in a film), Andrew Scott (best  leading actor in a drama for his role in Black Mirror’s episode Smithereens), Aisling Franciosi (this year’s Rising Star for her performance in The Nightingale), Niamh Algar (best actress in a drama and best supporting actress in a film) and Jessie Buckley (winner of the prizes for the best leading actress in a film for Wild Rose [+leggi anche:

and best supporting actress in a drama for Chernobyl).

Moreover, Liam Neeson shared a special message to the Irish screen industries and said: “I’m thinking of you all back home right now, and I know we are going through hard times, cruel times. Many industries have been hurt, especially the film industry, but we will get through it; we must get through it. As a famous politician once said, ‘when you’re going through hell, keep going’. To all our filmmakers, young actors and actresses: try and stay strong, stay creative. The work will come back again, and tonight we are going to celebrate how cool and how great a film industry we have in Ireland.”

The next edition will take place in April 2021.
