Audiovisual Federation congratulates Golden Globe winners

January 08, 2024

Audiovisual Ireland, the Ibec representative group for the screen industry (animation, film and television production, postproduction and VFX, television broadcasters, screen content studios, and cable and satellite service providers), welcomed the wonderful achievement at the Golden Globes by producers Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe of Element Pictures’ Poor Things in winning Best Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture. This was a great weekend for Irish talent, with Cillian Murphy winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture.

Torlach Denihan, Director of Audiovisual Ireland said:

“Over the last year the Irish screen industry shone brightly, most recently this weekend at the Golden Globes. This makes credible the goal to double employment in the sector as outlined in the Government’s Audiovisual Action Plan. As the screen sector supports around 12,000 jobs and annual production activity exceeds €700 million, its cultural, economic, and developmental impacts are undeniable. Boasting 32 Academy Award nominations since 2010, our industry stands as a testament to world-class excellence. With a proactive vision and the right backing, as exemplified by the Budget decision to increase the S.481 film tax incentive cap to €120 million, there's immense potential to elevate the sector even further.”
