Glasgow's own Krysty Wilson-Cairns continues her award season success with an Oscars nomination for historic drama 1917. 

The film is up for best Original Screenplay for 1917, which she co-wrote with director Sam Mendes.

Featuring scenes of Govan's Graving Docks, the first World War drama portrays the monumental task of two young soldiers to deliver a message that could save hundreds of lives.

The awards will take place on February 9, and the film is going up against Once upon a Hollywood, Knives Out, Marriage Story, and Parasite. 

She is a graduate of the city’s Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, which congratulated her on the accolade.

Professor Jeffrey Sharkey, Principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, said: “Krysty shows that there’s a path from Glasgow to Hollywood for talented storytellers.”
