Kenneth Branagh

Thirty-two years after receiving his very first Academy Award nominations for 1989’s Henry V, actor-director Kenneth Branagh has officially won his first Oscar.
Branagh won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for his latest film, Belfast.

“This story is the search for joy and hope in the face of violence and loss,” Branagh said during his acceptance speech. “We will never forget all of those lost in the heartbreaking, heartwarming, human story of that amazing city of Belfast on the fabulous island of Ireland,” he added.

About Belfast

Branagh wrote and directed the semi-autobiographical Belfast, which stars Jamie Dornan, Caitriona Balfe, and the young Jude Hill. The film follows a working-class family and the son’s childhood during the late 1960s in the Northern Ireland capital.
