  • Lady Bird Golden Globes

This year, she's nominated for best actress for her performance in Greta Gerwig's acclaimed directorial debut Lady Bird, and we can't wait to see what couture confection she arrives in.

Ronan received critical acclaim for playing a homesick Irish girl in 1950s NY in the drama Brooklyn (2015), for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress.

"Lady Bird" writer and director Greta Gerwig gave Sacramento a shoutout during Sunday's Golden Globes.

Moments later, a visibly overwhelmed Gerwig found herself on the same stage accepting the Best Motion Picture, Comedy award alongside the celebrated cast.

The Irish actress walked away with the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy). Many in the industry believe that Gerwig missed a well-deserved nomination in the director category at the Globes, which was won by Guillermo del Toro for "The Shape of Water". I want to thank all of the women who I love so much, my mother who is on FaceTime, my best friend. "I think it's also not just the content of what she says, but the way she delivers something is so inspiring that she had everyone on board".

Ronan won the best actress prize earlier in the night.

The film beat out fellow nominees Get Out, The Disaster Artist, The Greatest Showman and I, Tonya.
