‘Belfast’ Oscar Category Submission: Jamie Dornan, Kaitriona Balfe

3 min read

Kenneth Branagh’s “Belfast” will be led by young Jude Hill on his way to the Academy Awards, along with Castrina Balfe, Jamie Dornan, Ciaran Hinds and Judy Dench. Diversity Exclusively learned that Focus Features will promote Hill for consideration as the lead actor during the awards season, the rest of the cast will go for supporting recognition.

Balfe and Dornan’s category submissions have been a question mark since the film’s debut on Telluride, drawing a line between the main and supporting characters. Balfe, in many ways, actors have more accessible and resonant roles. In addition to giving a beautiful orchestrated turn, it can easily be packaged with all the “Oscar clip” bells and whistles you see among the award-winning contestants. His star has been growing for years now; She appeared in Best Picture Nominee “Ford vs. Ferrari” (2019) and has received widespread follow-up as Claire Randall in Sturge’s hit series “Outlander”, which will return in 2022.

The studio hopes to get nominations alongside her co-star Dench, who played the role of the loving and scene-stealing grandmother. She was an academy favorite, earning seven career names, including a co-star win for the role of Queen Elizabeth in the Best Picture winner “Shakespeare in Love” (1998). Dench will be 87 years old when the nomination is announced on February 8. If nominated, it would nominate her as the second oldest supporting actress in history, behind Ruby D (“American Gangster”) and Gloria Stewart (“Titanic”). Unfortunately, Dench will miss the record in 161 days.

Supporting Actress is a category that usually welcomes two actresses from the same film. In the last 93 years, 35 actresses have added two or more co-stars to the lineup, 12 of whom have won gold, most recently for Octavia Spencer’s “The Help” (2011).

Born in Belfast, Ireland, where the story took place, Hinds was a versatile actor for many years, taking memorable turns in Oscar-nominated films such as Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood” and Steven Spielberg’s “Munich”. As pop, a role given to recent Best Actor winner Anthony Hopkins, Hinds seems to have finally found his Oscar dance. It may reflect a winning strategy for past respected character actors like Jim Broadbent, when he won for “Iris” (2001), coincidentally starring Danish.

Irish actor Dornan, who also grew up in the suburbs of Belfast, is great as a foot, trying to support his family immediately with a person’s frustration and sincere tendencies. Dornan has been playing a number of exciting roles over the past few years, including his emotional musical turn in “Barb and Star Go to Vista del Mar”. Compared to the supporting actress, two men from the same film had trouble getting recognition with only 20 instances in the Academy Archives. However, three of these have happened alone in the last four years (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” “The Irishman” and “Judas and the Black Messiah”). There are a few films hoping for Double Deep (such as “The French Dispatch,” “The Power of the Dog” and “Mass”), but “Belfast” seems to be the strongest candidate right now.

Playing the role of wide-eyed and adorable friend, the effortless work of the mountain hits the heart of the film in many ways. If nominated for his role, 11-year-old Hill will be nominated for the second youngest actor since Jackie Cooper, recognized for Norman Taurog’s classic comedy “Skippy” (1930-31) at the fourth Oscars. It should be noted, Cooper is the only child to have been nominated for Best Actor and this year is highly competitive for major men.

In addition to the SAG Awards, each important award group has the autonomy to select an actor in any category, no matter how they are submitted. So we saw switchers like Kate Winslet in “The Reader” (200)), which she led after winning support on all previous television award shows. Last year, we saw it almost in “Judas and the Black Messiah” with Daniel Calua, which is explained by Lecith Stanfield’s relationship.

“Belfast” is going to the Mill Valley and Middleburg Film Festival, where writer and director Branagh will be honored and respected. Looking for Oscar recognition in writing and directing, he has received five nominations in his career, all in different categories (director, adaptive screenplay, actor, supporting actor and live-action short), perhaps one more added.

“Belfast” will open in theaters on November 12.
