‘Black’ earns gold at Method Fest

Angarano, Guiry win acting awards

“Black Irish” snagged picture kudos at the ninth annual Method Fest, which wrapped last week in Calabasas, Calif.

The film also drew nods for actor Michael Angarano and supporting actor Tom Guiry.

Actress honors went to Scout Taylor-Compton for “Tomorrow is Today,” while supporting actress went to Dagmara Domincyzk for “Mentor.”

Named for the acting style, Method Fest showcases “story-driven” indies with “breakout” performances.
