‘Peaky Blinders’, starring Cork native Cillian Murphy has been nominated for Best Drama Series alongside ‘Utopia’ which stars Galway actress Fiona O'Shaughnessy in the lead role.

HBO's ‘Game of Thrones’ has been nominated in the International category, alongside ‘Storyville - Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer’ and Channel 4's ‘The Returned’.
