The series was also nominated for outstanding casting in a limited series, movie or special Louise Kiely.

In Mescal’s category, the Maynooth actor will face competition from the likes of as Hugh Jackman, Jeremy Irons and Mark Ruffalo (for the underrated I Know This Much is True) and Jeremy Pope.

HBO’s Watchmen topped the nominations list with 26 nominations followed by Amazon hit The Marvelous Mrs Maisel with 20. Ozark and Succession have 18 each.

Mescal expressed his delight via Twitter:

Next up, director Lenny Abrahamson will go behind the camera for the TV adaptation of Rooney’s Conversations with Friends and the show will be produced for BBC Three.

“I love Conversations With Friends, its depth, humour and freshness, and it’s an honour to be involved in bringing it to the screen. I’m particularly happy that my connection to Sally and her work is set to continue,” he said on the project.
