  • Saoirse Ronan says her friends back home in Ireland are very supportive

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.

Unfortunately, her name wasn't announced as the victor on either of those occasions but she finally won her first Golden Globe last night for her leading role in Lady Bird.

Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan at the 75th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California January 8, 2018.

Gerwig was shut out of the best director category. In 2008, Saoirse was up for the Best Supporting Actress in Atonement, which she starred in alongside Keira Knightley and James McAvoy.

The Irish actress walked away with the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy).

Taking to the stage, Ronan gave a shout-out to her mother, who was watching via FaceTime on "someone's phone over there".

"I just want to say how inspirational it's been to be in this room", she continued on a night when the stars took a stand against harassment in the entertainment industry.

The film clenched the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, beating popular films "Get Out", "I, Tonya" and "The Greatest Showman".

Speaking to British Vogue, Saoirse's stylist Elizabeth Saltzman revealed that she and the actress decided on this early on. On the night, Balfe revealed that she is engaged.
