Paul Mescal lands his first Oscar nomination

Paul Mescal has landed his first Oscar nomination.

The Kildare native is up for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in the film Aftersun.

The 26-year-old is up against fellow Irish actor and The Banshees of Inisherin star Colin Farrell, Elvis star Austin Butler, The Whale’s Brendan Fraser, and Living star Bill Nighy.

Aftersun follows Calum (Paul Mescal) and his daughter Sophie (Frankie Corio) during a holiday in Turkey.

Celia Rowlson-Hall also portrays an adult Sophie, who looks back at the holiday 20 years on.

The film’s synopsis reads: “Twenty years after their last holiday at a fading vacation resort, Sophie reflects on the rare time spent with her loving and idealistic father Calum.”

“At 11-years-old, as the world of adolescence creeps into Sophie’s view, Calum struggles under the weight of life outside of fatherhood.”

“Sophie’s recollections become a powerful and heartrending portrait of their relationship, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t.”
