Farrell SWATS award; COL AIMS TO PICK UP IRISH GONG FOR ACTING.

Byline: FIONA WYNNE and JENNY MCQUAILE

HOLLYWOOD stars Colin Farrell, Aidan Quinn and Cillian Murphy are set to battle it out for Best Irish Actor gong in this year's Irish TV and Film Awards.

The glittering ceremony will take place at Dublin's Burlington Hotel on November 1 and some of the most famous faces in the business will be there.

Farrell, who is also nominated for Best Supporting Actor and for Best Film with Intermission, is set to steal the show.

The Dublin bad boy, who stars in SWAT, is up against Cillian Murphy for 28 Days Later, Andrew Scott in Dead Bodies, Aidan Quinn in Song For A Raggy Boy and Michael McElhatton for Spin The Bottle.

Box office hits Intermission and Veronica Guerin will also battle it out for Best Irish Film with The Actors, Chavez - Inside The Coup, Dead Bodies and Song For A Raggy Boy.

Ireland's leading ladies Natasha McElhone and Flora Montgomery are favourites to grab the Best Actress award. And Brenda Fricker, who won an Oscar for her role as Christy Brown's mother in My Left Foot, will take on film newcomer Deirdre O'Kane for the Best Supporting Actress gong.

Intermission star O'Kane said: "I am delighted and thrilled with the nomination.

"I was nominated last year but didn't win so I'll be mightily annoyed if I don't win."

Small screen favourites Any Time Now, Bachelor's Walk and On Home Ground are among those in the Best TV drama category.

Morning talkshow Ireland AM, The Health Squad and Ask Anna are up for the Best Lifestyle Award.

Colin O'Donoghue, who has been nominated in the Best New Talent category, said: "I am shocked at my nomination.

"I knew I had been put forward for it but I never expected to be nominated.

"I found out last Friday but I don't know too much about the night so far but I am certainly looking forward to it."

Mairead McGuinness, presenter of Ear To The Ground on RTE 1, is delighted the show has received it's first ever nomination this year.

She said: "The actual show that won us the nomination was a great programme about a farming family in Cork.

"The story about the O'Learys was amazing and they are a great family.

"They have two kids with special needs and I am delighted for them the show was nominated."

A jury of 100 people who have either worked in Ireland before or have an association or admiration for Irish talent will pick the winners.

But three categories, Best Irish TV Personality, Best Irish actor or actress and Best Irish film, will be voted for by the public.

You can vote from now until October 30 by calling 1540 715 780 or by texting 53070.

The award ceremony will be shown on RTE1 on November 2
