Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival has announced that Academy Award winning writer-director-producer Adam McKay will receive the Volta Award.
Deirdre meets writer/director Adam McKay on the red carpet for his Oscar-nominated hit The Big Short.
The film is undoubtedly funnier when rehashing old jokes, though the comic performances are once again spot on. Steve Carrell as Brick Tamland is absolutely brilliant – he’s given more screen time in this film, and never fails to incite laughter. Ferrell, too, is ludicrous and hilarious as Ron Burgundy: the man’s comic timing is impeccable, and even if the jokes aren’t fantastic, the performances of the main characters are.
