British and Irish talent again provided a strong showing in the nominations for the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards.

Martin McDonagh’s film The Banshees Of Inisherin picked up several acting nods on Wednesday, as well as one for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture – the SAG equivalent of best picture.

The film’s four main stars, Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan, all received nominations for their performances.

Farrell was again named in the top acting category – outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role – and was joined by Bill Nighy, Adam Sandler, Brendan Fraser and Austin Butler.
