An Armagh man has been nominated for a BAFTA award.
Cinematographer Seamus McGarvey, is up for the award for his work on Nocturnal Animals, starring Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Shannon.
The movie is about a wealthy art gallery owner who is haunted by her ex-husband’s novel which she interprets as a symbolic revenge tale.
Mr McGarvey has worked on a number of Hollywood movies including The Avengers and Atonement, the latter seeing him nominated for an Oscar.
This nod is the latest in a long-line of accolades for the Armagh man. He previously received a BAFTA nomination for his work on the 2002 film Anna Karenina.
Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph Mr McGarvey said: “It’s a fantastic honour. I’m really over the moon.
“I’m really excited because it’s a film I’m really proud of having worked on.
“It’s a dark but exciting thriller.
“I’m really glad this film is firstly doing well and receiving the creative attention. I enjoyed every second of working on it.”
