The nominations for the Golden Globe Awards have been announced in the US, with Brendan Gleeson among the nominees in the TV categories for his portrayal of former US President Donald Trump in The Comey Rule, and Irish animated film Wolfwalkers also shortlisted.

Gleeson's nomination as Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television is his fourth Golden Globe nomination, having previously been shortlisted for The Guard, Into the Storm and In Bruges.

Normal People and its star Daisy Edgar-Jones are among the nominees in the miniseries categories - but there was no nod for the drama's breakout Irish star, Paul Mescal.

Ed Guiney of Element Pictures said, "All of us at Element are so proud and so grateful to Lenny, Sally and our incredible cast and crew.

"We are so happy for Daisy who so richly deserves it and a bit sad that Paul didn't get the nod. Its also an incredible honour for the entire team as this is the first time that a fully Irish set, produced and directed TV series has been nominated for a Golden Globe."

Speaking about the nomination, Wolfwalkers co-directors Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart said: "We are delighted that this Irish story is so well received by audience, fans and critics from all over the world and the teams behind Wolfwalkers from Ireland, Luxembourg and France are honoured to be nominated alongside the best-animated features of the last year.

"While we would love to be in Hollywood to celebrate the Golden Globe award ceremony, we will likely be in a socially distant safe celebration here in Kilkenny - as Bill Goodfellowe would say `It's for our own good'."

The Crown leads the TV nominations with six, with Mank topping the film shortlists with same number.

Reacting to the nominations, The Crown creator Peter Morgan said: "All of us on The Crown are thrilled to be recognised in this way by the HFPA. This season really seems to have resonated with audiences of all generations all around the world, and we could not be more grateful or more proud."
