KERRY folk will have an upgraded interest in this years 88th Academy Awards ceremony after it was today announced that Killarney’s Michael Fassbender has received an Oscar nomination (his second, by the way) for his role as the titular character in the film Steve Jobs.
Fassbender, who was previously nominated in the ‘Best Supporting Actor’ category in 2014 for his role as Master Epps in 12 Years A Slave, is up against some stiff competition with Leonardo Di Caprio, Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon and Eddie Redmayne also vying for the coveted prize.
This years awards will be taking place on February 28th in California and there will no doubt be a few tired eyes around Killarney and Fossa if it is his name that emerges from that famous golden envelope.
WE’VE said it before and we’ll say it again, the Kerry boy has done alright for himself.
