Screen Producers Ireland CEO Elaine Geraghty had this to say following the wins:

“All of the member companies of SPI are thrilled for our colleagues in Element Pictures.”

"Andrew Lowe and Ed Guiney spent 20 years guiding this project from initial development to production to release, and they have had their belief in the story justified. ‘The Favourite’ is an excellent example of the importance of early development funding in a project alongside committed and determined producers.”

“With every award that ‘The Favourite’ wins, a worldwide spotlight shines on the Irish independent production industry and the many talented people who work in it. Our producers, crew and talent continue to create world class content.”

The movie also received the most number of Oscar nominations this year.
