win or lose

Boyzone, Saoirse Ronan, and Ed Sheeran... it's our celeb winners and losers of the week

Some will win, some will lose.

DailyEdge praises those who rocked the week in celebland, while keeping a watchful eye on those who should just log off forever.

Adam Collard 

Love Island’s Adam had a drink thrown over him at the NTAs by Ferne McCann. Why, you ask? Who knows. All that matters is that Adam got swilled.

It’s not exactly a good look for Ferne either, as The Mirror reports that she was spoken to by police after the incident. 

Bradley Cooper 

Bradley Cooper is a loser this week due to his MASSIVE SNUB at the Oscars. Sure, A Star is Born was nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Actor for Bradley, but where was his Best Director nod?

A scandal.  

It also would have been nice to see even one female director on the list, but here. 



Were you even a woman who grew up in 90s Ireland if you weren’t at the 3 Arena on Thursday night screaming your lungs out to Father and Son? Boyzone played their last ever Irish gig (supposedly) as part of their Thank You and Goodnight tour. 

Ronan, Mikey, Keith and Shane belted out the hits and even paid tribute to Stephen Gately, who passed in 2009. 

It went down surprisingly well, truly putting all the haters firmly in their place. 

As Shane Lynch would say, shove it up your hole. 

Saoirse Ronan 

Saoirse Ronan is a winner this week. No, she didn’t get an Oscar nomination, but she did get the cover of the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue cover. She appears alongside Chadwick Boseman, Timothee Chamalet, Tessa Thompson and Rami Malek, to name a few. Not a bad crowd to be associated with. 

Ed Sheeran 

Ed is releasing a guitar range with a Northern Irish guitar maker. Obviously, the most glam moment of his career so far. Lowden Guitars, based in Co Down, launched the range at the annual National Association of Music Merchants in California on Tuesday. 

Ed of course, was there to give them a song.

Ed was first given a Lowden guitar back in 2013 thanks to Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody.

Ah, Ireland’s son. 

Last week’s winners and losers: Cardi B, Ariana Grande, and Vogue Williams>
