Today we woke up with the good news that Barry Keoghan was nominated for an Oscar. Here are three reasons why you should have been nominated sooner.
It is common to hear that this or that actor “was owed an Oscar nomination.” This happens with artists with a long history who for some reason have been nominated by the Academy and finally have their work recognized. It’s very rare for this to happen with a young actor, but now that Barry Keoghan has been nominated, the same phrase could be applied.
Barry is barely 30 years old, but he already has a career full of meaty performances and characters, plus he’s sought out by big-name directors for their movies. Keoghan was nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for the spirits of the islandwhich is one of the big favorites of the Oscars 2023.
Here are some of his best performances that may well have earned him another Oscar nomination.
Martin in The sacrifice of a sacred deer
Barry plays a weird and sinister boy who somehow wields power over a surgeon who held his father’s life in his hands and couldn’t save him, forcing him to sacrifice a family member to make this haunting go away. Martin gives chills just looking at him. In addition, here he is measured against actors of the stature of Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell, with whom he also acts in the spirits of the island
george in Dunkirk
In Dunkirk, Barry has a small but substantial role. He is a teenager who tries to help the British soldiers to return home during World War II, but suffers an accident that puts him in danger. Barry can not only make macabre characters, he can also move like few others.
scavenger in the green knight
Now Barry plays a charismatic leader of a gang of robbers in a medieval fantasy film. Another short but unforgettable role that makes clear the talent and vestality of this great actor.
We wish Barry Keoghan the best of luck at the next Oscars, which will take place on March 12.
