In short stories in the Oscars news, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which I posted about before here, has received 13 nominations, including Best Adapted Screenplay.

And New Boy, which is based on a Roddy Doyle short story, about a Rwandan refugee's first day at his new Irish school, has been nominated in the Best Live Action Short Film.

In other Irish-interest Oscar news, Martin McDonagh has received a Best Screenplay Oscar nomination for In Bruges.

Congrats to all and best of luck. Go n-éirí an bóthar libh!
