Lady Bird wins at Golden Globe awards

Saoirse Ronan and her pals back in Ireland 'get a giggle' from Oscar hype

For her performance in Lady Bird, the Irish actress has already won the Gotham Independent Film Award for Best Actress and the New York Film Critics Circle Awards for Best Actress.

The top Golden Globes prize is merely the latest accolade for Lady Bird, which has been named best picture by a number of critics groups, including the National Society of Film Critics, which just voted on its annual awards on Saturday. Her breakthrough came with the part of a precocious teenager in Atonement (2007), for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. I want to thank all of the women who I love so much, my mother who is on FaceTime, my best friend.

"It's my mum's birthday tomorrow; she likes this kind of thing", said Martin McDonagh, accepting his award. Lady Bird, which also stars Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, and Lucas Hedges, is one of the most critically-acclaimed movies of the year and broke the Rotten Tomatoes record as the best-reviewed movie.
