Irish Aboard: Brooklyn nominated for Producers Guild Award

Brooklyn producers Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey have been nominated at the 27th Producers Guild Awards. Dwyer and Posey are nominated for the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, alongside Academy Award® contenders including Bridge of Spies, The Revenant and Spotlight.

This continues the long streak of award nominations and wins for Brooklyn. In addition to a nomination for the Golden Globes, star Saoirse Ronan recently received the Best Actress Award at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.

Brooklyn is an adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s best-selling novel by the equally best-selling British author Nick Hornby. Set in the 1950s, the film sees a young woman move from a small town in Ireland to Brooklyn, where she has the opportunity for work, for a future and for love.

Intermission director Crowley has gathered an all-star Irish and British cast, that features Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Jim Broadbent, and Julie Walters. Brooklyn is an Irish/British co-production from Wildgaze Films, Finola Dwyer Productions, Parallel Films and Item 7, with co-finance from Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board.

The Producers Guild Awards honour the finest producing work of the year. The awards will be held in Los Angeles on January 23rd.
