It has been reported by Deadline that Saoirse will be honored by the third time at Santa Barbara International Film Festival this year, where she was previously awarded for Brooklyn and The Lovely Bones!

Lady Bird star Saoirse Ronan may be only 23 years old but she already is proving to be a veteran award winner at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival where she is slated to receive the newly renamed Santa Barbara Award on Sunday February 4th at the Arlington Theatre.

Given to a person in the entertainment industry who has made a great contribution to film, this SBIFF honor follows the Outstanding Performer Of The Year just two years ago for Brooklyn, and a Virtuoso Award in 2010. Ronan is currently a SAG award nominee and last week won Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical at the Golden Globes for Lady Bird.

This award which was previously called the Montecito Award has gone to Sylvester Stallone, Kate Winslet , Isabelle Huppert, Daniel Day-Lewis, Julianne Moore, Geoffrey Rush, Naomi Watts, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston, and Bill Condon. Considering the fire and mudslides that have plagued the Santa Barbara community of Montecito for which the award is named it was decided to change it in light of the ongoing tragedy that has already claimed several lives. The Festival has formally thanked the City Of Santa Barbara’s first responders and emergency authorities saying “their bravery and sacrifice cannot be overstated in providing relief during what has been an increasingly difficult time for Santa Barbara”. It suggests that donations can be made to the Red Cross as well as other groups.

The 33rd annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival will take place from Wednesday, January 31st through Saturday, February 10th. The festival previously honored Judi Dench with its Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film. The festival has also announced that it will honor Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour) with its Maltin Modern Master Award, Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project) with its Cinema Vanguard Award, and Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Hong Chau (Downsizing), John Boyega (Detroit), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), Mary J. Blige (Mudbound), and Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name) with the Virtuosos Award.

Saoirse visited The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last night! She talked about her Golden Globe win and how her mom skipped the event to watch her new puppy, and then she played catchphrase with him against actor Timothée Chalamet – her Lady Bird co-star – and Tarik Trotter from The Roots.

Saoirse attended the Golden Globe Awards last night! She was honored with the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her work in Lady Bird, and the film itself won Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture. We couldn’t be happier! Saoirse had been nominated two times before, first as Best Supporting Actress for “Atonement”, then for Best Actress in “Brooklyn”. Our gallery has been updated with tons of pictures from the event. Thanks to Ashley, from juliannehough.org and Lee, from timothee-chalamet.net, for their help!

Saoirse and Greta Gerwig are on the 1st Variety cover of 2018! The magazine features an interview with the pair about Lady Bird, which is already on their website and you can read below.

Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan on How They Found the Voice of ‘Lady Bird’

Greta Gerwig is having coffee and a bowl of jasmine rice in a mostly empty SoHo restaurant on a frosty late afternoon in December. The day before, she was named best director by the National Board of Review, the first of many accolades that she, her star Saoirse Ronan and their movie “Lady Bird” will receive in the coming weeks. Gerwig is beaming, though you get the feeling that’s her natural state. Her short hair is blondish, with dark roots, and you can see an echo of a number of the characters she’s played — the ebullient falling-through-the-cracks dancer of “Frances Ha,” the Bowie-headed art punk of “20th Century Women” — in her large sun-dazed smile, her easy open laugh, her tossed-off intelligence.
