Oscar Frontrunner Saoirse Ronan Scores Another Award in Stunning Gucci Dress

We recently reported her Saoirse Ronan’s Best Actress win at the New York Film Awards, and her Golden Globe 2018 nomination, and now she has scooping yet another award at the 27th Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards for her starring role in Ladybird.

The award comes on the back of her most recent role, Lady Bird, where Saoirse stars as a restless teenager desperate to get out of her stifling and uncultured town in California.

Saoirse attended Tuesday night’s Palm Springs International Film Festival opening gala looking every inch the movie star.

The Carlow native wore a striking colour block red and pink Gucci gown, and old Hollywood-style hair.

This most recent award surely cements her status as a front runner in the Oscars race.

Nominated in the past for two Oscars, for both Atonement and Brooklyn, the news of the nomination adds to the speculation that 2017 will be her year at the Academy Awards.
