Saoirse Ronan and Andrew Scott are both in the running for a Golden Globe
The Golden Globe nominations were revealed on December 6 and Irish actors Saoirse Ronan and Andrew Scott are both in the running.
For her role as Jo March in Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of “Little Women,” Saoirse Ronan is nominated in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama category alongside Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet”), Scarlett Johansson (“Marriage Story”), Charlize Theron (“Bombshell”), and Renée Zellweger (“Judy”).
Ronan was the only acting nomination that “Little Women” received. The only other category where the film is a contender is in the Best Original Score - Motion Picture category, which sees Alexandre Desplat nominated alongside Hildur Guðnadóttir (“Joker”), Randy Newman (“Marriage Story”), Thomas Newman (“1917”), and Daniel Pemberton (“Motherless Brooklyn”).
Ronan has been nominated three times previously for a Golden Globe award.
In 2008, when Ronan was only 13 years old, she was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe for her role in 2007’s “Atonement.” In 2016, she was nominated for Best Actress in the film version of Colm Toibin’s “Brooklyn,” and in 2018 she won the Best Actress Golden Globe for her role in “Lady Bird.”
Greta Gerwig directed Ronan in both "Lady Bird" and this year's "Little Women," so here's hoping to the duo's luck will continue at the upcoming Golden Globes.
