Saoirse Ronan missed her Golden Globe nomination because she was hiking in Glendalough

As you do.

SAOIRSE RONAN WAS nominated for her third Golden Globe this week for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for ‘Ladybird’.


Some gal for one gal, eh?

She ended up missing the announcement herself, however – because she was hiking in Wicklow at the time.

Speaking to People Magazine, she said:

I actually forgot about it because I was on a different time zone and up and out of the house.
I had a friend over and we went to this beautiful site called Glendalough, which is a monastic site and there’s a beautiful lake and mountains.

We’re familiar with it Saoirse, don’t worry. This is what it looks like under the current weather conditions.

Treacherous enough Saoirs.

My bag just started to vibrate nonstop and I was like ‘What’s going on?’
And then I saw a bunch of missed calls from my publicist and I was like, ‘Oh s—, they’re out today!”

So there you go. Even Hollywood superstars forget things sometimes.

She continued:

It was quite nice as it meant I wasn’t thinking about it too much [...] It was such a lovely surprise when I heard. It’s very exciting.”

Her mam was similar unbothered.

I called my mom and she didn’t answer.”
She called me back and was like, “The one time I don’t answer my phone!”"
