Saoirse is set to receive the Best Actress Honor at the Palm Springs Film Festival on January 2, 2018! Two years ago, on the exact same date, they honored her with the International Star Award. Back then it was for her work in the film “Brooklyn”, and now it’s for “Lady Bird”. The news comes from Deadline.

EXCLUSIVE: Saoirse Ronan’s performance in Lady Bird which has already been on a roll this season adds yet another honor by being named the recipient of this year’s Desert Palm Achievement Award from the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Playing a catholic high school teenager trying to escape her family and surroundings in Sacramento, Ronan has already been honored with Best Actress prizes from the Gotham Awards and the New York Film Critics Circle, in addition to nabbing an Independent Spirit nomination for Lead Actress. She also is coming off her hosting gig on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live and is considered a strong bet for her third Oscar nomination following previous nods for 2007’s Atonement and 2015’s Brooklyn. Ronan joins previously announced 2018 PSIFF honorees Timothee Chalamet, Gal Gadot, Holly Hunter, Allison Janney, Gary Oldman, Sam Rockwell, and The Shape Of Water. “Saoirse Ronan delivers one of the most outstanding performances of this year as an outspoken high school student growing up in Sacramento in the critically acclaimed Lady Bird,” said Festival Chairman Harold Matzner. Past recipients of the Actress honor include several who went on to win the Oscar including Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Sandra Bullock, Halle Berry, Marion Cotillard, Anne Hathaway, and Charlize Theron.

The award will be presented at the 29th annual PSIFF awards gala on January 2, 2018. The Festival runs January 2-15.

Saoirse hosted Saturday Night Live for the very first time last night, and it was glorious! We are still humming “Welcome To Hell”, and we really hope they release those pictures of her they showed during the breaks. We had a lot of fun livetweeting the show last night with you guys!

Our gallery has been updated with images from the episode. This is sort of a weird category, but we’ve added it under “Public Appearances”, like we do with talk shows. We know the show’s Youtube channel has a lot of countries blocked, but we haven’t found an alternative to share the videos yet. I’m sorry!

Saoirse continues to promote Lady Bird all over the United States, and The Los Angeles Times has just posted a new interview with her, which features a brand new photo session. We’ve added it to our gallery, and you can read their article below.

When Saoirse Ronan found out she’d be spending a couple of weeks in Los Angeles to promote her new film, “Lady Bird,” she asked to stay in an apartment instead of a hotel. She wanted to be able to light her Diptyque candles, do her own laundry and drink herbal tea before bed.

“I think it’s good for me to go back at the end of the night and look after myself,” says Ronan, 23.

But when she arrived at her temporary L.A. home, she found bags of groceries from Whole Foods awaiting her. Her mother, more than 5,000 miles away in Ireland, had ordered the provisions online.

“She bought vegetables for me to cook with,” the actress says. “I have such a great mam. She makes sure I’m getting a good dinner from across the pond.”

Ronan is exceptionally close to her mother, Monica. Growing up as an only child in Carlow, Ireland’s second-smallest county, she relished her relationship with her homemaker mother and actor father. They’d all watch “Seinfeld” together, and Ronan was such a rule-follower that she willingly did the dishes, because she wanted her parents “to be happy.”
