Irish Cinema picked up two Oscar's overnight.

Tallaght man Richard Baneham won his second Visial Effects Oscar for his work on Avatar while Northern Irish drama 'An Irish Goodbye' won Best Live Action Short Film.

It was disappointment though for the Banshees of Inisherin which went away empty handed despite having nine nods.

There was also no glory for An Cailin Ciuin.

The audience broke into a rendition of 'Happy Birthday' for 'An Irish Goodbye' star James Martin.

It was sci-fi movie Everything Everywhere All At Once that was the big winner - going home with seven awards, including best picture.

Michelle Yeoh, Brendan Fraser, Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis won the acting awards.

Locals in the North Inner City had been hoping for a Best Support Actor for Barry Keoghan following his BAFTA win but it wasn't to be. But his local club where he started out tweeted they were still very proud of him.
