Furious Banshees Of Inisherin star Barry Keoghan criticizes British Airways after the airline lost his suitcase and ‘tons of sentimental stuff’ while traveling to Los Angeles for the Oscars
Barry Keoghan has criticized British Airways for “poor customer service” after losing his suitcase on the way to Los Angeles for the Oscars.
The Irish actor said he was taking “tons of sentimental stuff” for Sunday’s show and that the airline doesn’t “seem to be the least bit helpful.”
Keoghan is nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 95th Academy Awards for his role in the Irish black comedy The Banshees Of Inisherin.
In a now-deleted tweet posted on Wednesday, he wrote: ‘Lost my bag with @British-Airways and they can’t seem to be helpful at all.
“Here in LA for the Oscars and I had tons of sentimental stuff that I wanted to wear and take with me.
‘Such bad customer service. He sent me to LAX to tell me they can’t help me. Tut tut.
Keoghan’s best supporting actor nomination is his first Oscar nomination, and he will go head-to-head with Banshees co-star Brendan Gleeson in the category.
He previously won the Bafta Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in the film, in which he plays the goofy Dominic Kearney.
The other stars of The Banshees, Colin Farrell and Kerry Condon, are also nominated for this year’s Oscars, in the categories of best actor and best supporting actress, respectively.
The film earned a total of nine nominations at the ceremony, including a coveted Best Picture nomination.
The 95th Academy Awards will take place on March 12 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
