IFTA: Irish Film and Television Academy



Congratulations to Michael for winning the Best Actor award at the Irish Film and Television Awards this evening! You can watch the broadcast of the programme at RTÉ One at 9:40pm GMT... if you're in the UK, doh!

Michael Fassbender is nominated for Best Actor for Shame at the IFTA ceremony this evening in Dublin. You can watch IFTAs on RTÉ One at 9:40pm. I will try to put a link up if possible. Unlike the Golden Globes, I don't know if there will be a live stream of this show. However, you would be wise to follow @IFTA on Twitter, where they will surely announce the winners live. Just as soon as images of Michael attending the ceremony are published, I'll post them here.

Feel free to post comments in this thread throughout the day and during the IFTA broadcast.

IFTA facebook is providing up to the minute updates and details in preparation of the show.
IFTA website gives you additional information about the awards and the nomination list.


Good luck Michael! ♥









Michael and Chris O'Dowd who won Best Supporting Actor.

I will post more pictures of Michael at IFTA as they come in.

It's basically a two-way race between Michael and Brendon Gleeson, who was magnificent in The Guard.

No prob. :)

BTW the ceremony starts at 6.30 pm Irish/UK time (i.e. 1/2 hour from now), but they are going to broadcast it at 9.30 pm.

So don't worry people if you tune in and don't see it now. The broadcast is not live.

Manuela said...

I honestly wouldn't mind if Brendan Gleeson won, because:

1) He's a living incarnation of a goddamn teddy bear!

2) His role was the complete opposite of Fassy's, and he drew me in equally. Every twist of pain I felt while watching Shame met it's match with every burst of laughter I made watching The Gaurd.

3) They're both Irish

4) They're both awesome.

But I'd rather have Michael win.

Manuela said...

i cant watch(((((saw fotos Fassy u r greatest

Ranelle said...

Best of luck to Michael tonight!

Simone said...

The winners are being announced live at Twitter.

Flora said...

Is that Chris O'Dowd he's standing next to on the red carpet? That right there must be the centre of all hilarity for the evening. I'd follow those two around all night, because you just KNOW the after-party is going to be the most fun you've ever had!

And no, I don't have anything better to do on a Saturday night :D

Ranelle said...

Yeah Flora, that's him. After party should be epic.
So... they announced best actress and now are announcing all these random awards before best actor. Hmph. lol

Flora said...

And yes, I agree, Gleeson deserves to win too. Maybe it can be a tie!

Manuela said...

Manuela said...

damn and how we couldnt see it. he dedicated this award to his sister -how it s sweet.
best director - Michael McDonagh -the guard -sorry but i really love this movie. but FASSSSSSYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY im afraid for Dublin this night

Flora said...

Is that his sister with him on the red carpet? I saw a blurry photo of a blonde woman with fantastic cleavage and thought it might be his mum at first, but I think Mrs F is a brunette.

Anonymous said...

OMG how precious is he??

Simone said...

The older blonde lady is Olivia Treacy, an Irish actress.

Manuela said...

Flora -no she was absent.

Flora said...

Poor man, he's going to have a terrible hangover at the BAFTAs after all the much-deserved celebrating he'll be doing. Hope his flight isn't too early tomorrow morning!

Simone said...

The ceremony will be broadcast on RTE One, which Barbara posted earlier.

Manuela said...

Guard is the best movie))) no doubt but Fassy)))))))))))))))))))))))))) im so happy/ no need to wait for Oscar we got irish one tonight)))) need british one for couple))))but it s tomorrow

Simone said...

I just posted the link to RTE One at the top of the blog entry. It will start showing the event in a few moments! I just watched the weather report at the link, so it's working fine.

Some new photos :)

Flora said...

Thanks Simone and Manuela. I thought I'd read his sister lives in LA, so it's not like she wouldn't get plenty of opportunities to be his plus one a bit closer to home. And I've now seen a non-blurry pic of Ms Treacy and can see that she's a little too old to be his sister. (Although she does look fabulous and has some really quite splendid cleavage going on there!)


Looking forward to pics of Michael with his award.

Manuela said...

Simone - im so happy ) waiting)))) want refeel all these emotions again)) really happy for Fassy

Manuela said...

diesnt work for me(

Simone said...

I can't view the show at RTE One... it's probably only available to view in Ireland.

You'd think they would have that posted on their website.

Ranelle said...

It's too bad we can't even watch on the International Player :(
Oh well. Congrats Michael!

Simone said...

The most important part will show up on Youtube eventually. :)

We should get more pics soon.

Dionne said...

Congrats to Michael! Whoop, knew it!
The video will show up soon enough for all of our enjoyment. <3

Manuela said...

oh yes pretty sad))) they dont want sharing their ginger boy even on TV))) eh

Anonymous said...

Congrats Michael!!!

And good luck tomorrow. :)

Yeah, the RTE One player streams the ceremony, but only for viewers in Ireland. :(

But hopefully they will upload the whole ceremony to IFTAs youtube channel. They did it with the last year ceremony.

I'm very happy to see that he's won this award as well. He's a great talent with a lot of range.

Manuela said...

really? still no video of accepting award?

Noëlle said...

Yes, Go Fassy! Looks beautiful as always...
I'm totally happy for him right now!
crossing my fingers for BATFA

By the way, does any of you have a link to a video yet?

Alyssa aka DivaNeela said...

OMG Congratulation to Fassy !

So happy!

dshultz said...

Well, it's refreshing to see that the rest of the world is well aware of Michael's talent, still, living in America makes it hard to openly put forth this sentiment without drawing a number of blank stares...

Ranelle said...

still no video of Michael's acceptance speech? I'm afraid that would happen. When it only airs in one country, that's the risk.

sigh.

Anonymous said...

Not sure if anybody will see this now, but here's video of Michael winning. No speech but you get to see Michael's dad give him a kiss. So nice to see.
