In case you missed it, Saoirse received her 2nd Academy Award nomination yesterday for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role. (with Brooklyn also picking up Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay nods) Here are her reactions from the press and her official statement:

Official Statement:

“When we made Brooklyn, we had no idea of what was to come. It is the most personal film I have ever done, the hardest one too. I am honoured to represent this film with my friends – John, Nick, Finola, Yves, Colm, Amanda. This has all been a dream. To see how the film has been embraced has been heartwarming. Thank you so very much to The Academy – you are a group of people I respect greatly and to be recognized by you means so much.”

From Independent.ie:

Speaking to RTE Ten on Thursday night, following the nominations announcement, she said she had just moved in to her new apartment in New York. “It was my first night in this apartment and I was still kind of getting used to the New York traffic so I had my hear plugs in my ears and I actually had the best night’s sleep I’ve had in days because I was a bit jet-lagged,” she said. “I was finally getting to sleep, I was in a really deep sleep which was weird considering what was going on today, and about 8 o’clock, half eight, mam ran in and all I could hear was, ‘We’re going to the Oscars, we’re going to the Oscars!’

“It was kind of muffled and I couldn’t make out what she was saying but she had tears in her eyes and I pulled out my ear plugs and she was able to tell me the news straight away. Everyone from home started calling me. It’s wonderful. It’s a huge honour to be recognised now a second time, it’s unreal,” she said. “I think to have gone through something like that when you are young, it was great, but to a certain extent it does go over your head a bit which is good.”
