Saoirse was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night to talk about Lady Bird! This video features a scene from the movie of which we had only seen a few seconds in the trailer, and Saoirse talks about growing up catholic, wanting to have a different name as a child and why she believes the movie resonates with so many people. It’s a great interview!
Deadline has released their interview with Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf and Greta Gerwig about Lady Bird, which is as part of their awards season Contenders series. The video was film on November 4, and we had previously added pictures of the event to our gallery – view them here.
I know, the amount of acronyms we’ve been dealing with lately is maddening, but those society names are so long! Saoirse has received Best Actress nominations for her work in Lady Bird by the Los Angeles Film Critics Society and the Detroit Film Critics Society! The first also nominated her for Best Performance by an Actor or Actress under 23 years old. The film itself received multiple nominations by both societies, too, and you can view the complete lists here and here.
