The Kerryman is nominated for best actor at the Globes, but is up against stiff competition in Leonardo DiCaprio who is shortlisted for his turn as a vengeful frontiersman in the ‘The Revenant’.

Fassbender has been receiving widespread acclaim for his lead role in Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs.

Other Irish interest at the Globes includes Saoirse Ronan who has won best actress for John Crowley’s Brooklyn at the British Independent Film Awards and the New York Film Critics Circle.

The awards which talk place in Los Angeles tonight will be hosted by Ricky Gervais for the fourth time.
