Charlie versus Love/Hate: The nominations for the IFTAS are out
Let’s forget about last year’s ceremony and move on…

IT WAS TOUCH and go whether they were going to take place this year – but the nominees for this year’s IFTAs awards have been announced.

Frank and Patrick’s Day have topped the list for film nominations with nine apiece, while unsurprisingly, Love/Hate has the highest number of nominations for a television programme with seven.

Vikings had the next highest number of television nominations with seven, followed by Charlie, The Fall and Game of Thrones, which all received three nominations.

Glassland, I Used to Live Here, Noble and Song of the Sea all received multiple nominations in the film categories.

There are a total of 27 categories across film and television categories.

The awards are slightly different from previous years: they’ve been split into two, with the film and drama awards taking place in Dublin’s Mansion House on 24 May and the television awards taking place in October.

The programme will be broadcast on TV3, but in a one-hour special rather than in last year’s much-criticised format.

Here is the full list of nominees:
