Oscar Belfast won ‘Great recognition for a wonderful city and wonderful people’ –


Sir Kenneth Branagh won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Belfast.

“It is a great honor for my family and a great honor for a wonderful city and great people,” he said as he collected the statues. He added, “This story is a search for joy and hope in the face of violence and loss. We have lost many people in the street.”

He continued: “We miss and love them and we will never forget them and we will never forget all those who are lost in human history to the wonderful city of Belfast on the wonderful island of Ireland. It means a lot.”

Sir Kenneth was expected to skip the awards after he missed several awards ceremonies earlier this week due to testing positive for Covid-19. Speaking to ABC’s On The Red Carpet, “It was great to see the history of Belfast speaking to the world.”

Sir Kenneth added that he was “happy” to be nominated in seven record categories at this year’s awards, but he was “happy to be here”. Meanwhile, 11-year-old star Judd Hill promised to meet American actress Sophia Carson at night when the couple met on the red carpet and kissed her on the cheek.
