Both Brendan Gleeson and The Dubliner gave outstanding performances in the movie The Banshees of Inisherin, earning them nominations for Best Supporting Actor.
Barry captioned a photo of the nominees in his category with, “That one’s for you, Brando. Daddy Loves you,” followed by an emoji of a red heart. Embrace the cuteness, would you?
The actor, pleased with himself, posted a selfie of himself smiling while sitting in a car with the sun shining down on him.
Fans were already in awe of the 30-year-old Batman and Eternals star after the Banshees cast won big at the Golden Globes.
Barry gave a touching tribute to his partner Alyson Sandro as they celebrated their three-Globe victory, demonstrating why he was one of the most incredible performers in the industry.
Barry hasn’t tried to disguise the fact that he adores being a father since the pair had their baby in August 2022.
His Oscar nomination tribute to his young son is all the more endearing.
Banshees’ ensemble represents their country with pride: Kerry Condon got nominated for Best Supporting Actress, Colin Farrell for Best Actor in a Leading Role, and Martin McDonagh for Best Director for his work on the movie.
Alongside Castleknock native Colin, newcomer Paul Mescal is competing for the Best Actor award.
He got nominated for his performance in Aftersun, his first feature picture.
Paul’s sister Nell posted a photo of the 26-year-old appearing both thrilled and startled on social media as soon as the Mescals learned of her brother’s candidature.
She said, showing a sweet screenshot of her family and brothers discovering Paul’s Oscar nomination, “How did this occur?”
The teenage singer remarked, “WTF,” after tweeting a list of the leading actor nominees, including her brother sandwiched between Austin Butler, Bill Nighy, Brendan Fraser, and Colin Farrell.
