Huge congrats are in order for Irish film today.
There were joyous scenes in Element Pictures this afternoon as the Oscar nominations for 'Room' rolled in again and again, with Brie Larson, writer Emma Donoghue, director Lenny Abrahamson and producer Ed Guiney all picking up nominations for the adaptation of Donoghue's own book of the same name.
Nominations for Larson in the Best Actress category and for Donoghue in the Adapted Screenplay category were highly expected as awards season as gone on, but the real surprises came with Lenny Abrahamson's nomination for Best Director and for the film itself and producer Ed Guiney in the Best Picture category.
