Kerry Condon of ‘Banshees of Inisherin’ to be honored – The Hollywood Reporter


Kerry Condon, currently getting high marks for facing Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson in Martin McDonagh’s Inisherin’s Bansheeswill be honored at the Oscar Wilde Awards 2023.

The 17th annual event, held the Thursday night before the Oscars, returns to March 9 with JJ Abrams and Katie McGrath’s Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica.

Organized by the nonprofit US-Ireland Alliance led by founder and president Trina Vargo, the Oscar Wilde Awards celebrate the work of those from Ireland – and some not – contributors for film, television and music.

Condon, 39, from Tipperary, Ireland, and McDonagh have also worked together in theatrical productions of Inishmaan’s Disability and the Royal Shakespeare Company Inishmore’s lieutenant and in the acclaimed 2017 film Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.

“I don’t think I’m going to see how brilliant she really is on the stage that’s actually captured in the movies,” McDonagh said of reprising Condon on Banshees in a September interview with Vanity Fair. “I wanted to make sure we did it – and she blew me away.”

Condon, who also voices Friday in the Marvel superhero movies, will next appear in the horror film. In the land of saints and sinners with Liam Neeson and Ciarán Hinds.

On television, she played the daughter of Jonathan Banks’ Mike Ehrmantraut on It’s better to call Saul and has appeared on other series such as Lucky, Ray Donovan and Sharon Horgan’s Women on the Verge.

Hackman Capital Partners and MBS Group are back as main sponsors of the event. Last year, Hackman announced that it would sponsor two of the United States-Ireland Mitchell Scholarships (for study in Ireland) with a prize of $100,000.

Screen Ireland and Northern Ireland Screen also return as sponsors.

Because of lingering pandemic concerns, the Oscar Wilde Awards were held at its original home, the Ebell theater in Los Angeles, last year. It was canceled in 2021.

Honorees over the years include Farrell, Gleeson, Norman Lear, Jim Sheridan, Kenneth Branagh, Catherine O’Hara, Hylda Queally, Barry Keoghan, Glenn Close, Ruth Negga, Saoirse Ronan, Carrie Fisher, Van Morrison, Michelle Williams, Neil Jordan and late CHEAP writer and editor Steve Brennan.

Other honorees will be announced in the coming weeks.
