Saoirse Ronan Wins Best Young Actor at Critics' Choice Awards 2010

Saoirse Ronan speaks on stage as she accepts the award for Best Young Actor during the 2010 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at the Hollywood Palladium on Friday night (January 15) in Los Angeles.

The 15-year-old Irish actress was presented the award from When In Rome co-stars Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel.

Saoirse, pronounced “sur-shuh” stars as Susie Salmon in The Lovely Bones. She shared about her role with press, “I know a lot of people must think that The Lovely Bones is a pretty dramatic film and it’s going to be really deep and dark and everything, but I promise you it’s not. It’s really humorous and funny and bright and happy. Then this awful thing happens and it kind of makes everyone really sad, obviously, but they have to get on with things.”

She continued, “It’s like the journey that Susie takes to learn to let go and realize that she can’t be with her family anymore, and the same for her family. They have to let go and they know that they can’t be with Susie. But it’s a really funny, lighthearted thing. There’s some really dramatic scenes in it as well, which is great with The Lovely Bones because you kind of get the best of both worlds.”

  • carlos

    you are so beatiful saoirse ronan. your eyes are beatiful. i really like see you with that dress. i love. i am a big fan of you saoirse.


    she’s fourteen right? and wearing outfits like that? (the second one) my parents would mostly likely kill me if i tried. but other than that, she’s a ah-maz-ing actress and has a good sense of right and wrong. she’ll be like kristen stewart, independant but stunning portrayals. she’ll do great things in the future.

  • hollywoodgossip

    yeah has really nice eyes

  • lulu

    i think she looks lovely with her make up, it really brings out her beautiful features. She’s so talented, and very under-rated i my opinion. JustJaredJr, please post more about her and not other people with not as much talent at her, she’s worth watching out for!! x x x

  • Diana

    very beautiful!!

  • Dan

    OMG i saw The Lovely Bones and this girl absolutely amazed me and surprised me cuz how good she (and the movie) was, i cant believe shes 15! she’s so talented and beautiful, really deserved.

  • suzy

  • bethannny

    God,i love her.shes so amazing:)
    shes is stunning too.

  • helen

    she’s so pretty, I’m impressed by everything she does. she should be looked out for

  • never_to_return

    Here’s to hoping she gets typecast for a few years, then gets fed up and breaks free of it with a sexy role that requires nudity. Tasteful nudity, of course. Lots and lots of tasteful nudity.

  • ZeeLee

    She’s English…..I saw her in Atonement, she has a refined English accent.

  • GiGi

    She is amazing… better then any young actress out there and Lovely Bones is my new favorite movie!!! every body in the cast was amazing!! She is so beautiful!!!

  • xoxo

    she was so good in the movie,
    it was very well done.
    and it was really true to the book,
    loved it!

  • Irishandproud

    ZeeLee she is NOT english, she is irish. She had an accent trainer to get the required accent for Atonement. Would you say James Macavoy is english too?? No. Look at her interviews on youtube, she clearly has an irish accent.

    And she is a brilliant actress, she will definately go far in the future. Go Saoirse! :D

  • Nazeefa

    I absolutely ADORE her! Seriously, saoirse is an amazing actress and seems even sweeter.

  • Mony

    Zee Zee she isn’t English. She is Irish. She is extremely talented with accents. Her next movie The Way back she plays a Polish girl, can’t wait to hear that accent.

  • jasmin

    I love everything about her! She’s so beautiful & talented.
