Saoirse Ronan: IFTA Lead Actress Winner!

A barefoot Saoirse Ronan holds onto her Irish Film and Television Academy statuette backstage at the 2010 IFTA Awards held at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin on Saturday night (February 20).

The 15-year-old actress beat out Janice Byrne, Amy Kirwan and Jade Yourell for the coveted award for her role in The Lovely Bones.

It was just recently announced that Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana would be joining Saoirse in the upcoming Hanna.

FYI: Saoirse wore a custom designed fuschia dress, bracelet and shoes all by Burberry.

  • nnuria

    I’m in love with her shoes!

  • mony

    Her shoes must have been killing her which is why she doesn’t have them on. Happy for her win.

  • jamie

    She is just SOOO talented. Saoirse is also very beautiful for her age.

  • bronagh

    can’t believe you guys wrote about the ifta’s! it’s great that she won but the ifta’s are a joke! nobody in Ireland takes them seriously! they mean nothing!!

  • Mark

    Really incisive there Bronagh…
    Have you ever been?
    Sure Ireland has a very small industry but if everyone had your attitude – nothing would ever happen…

    Well said Mark. Even if the Iftas is a small awards show, it is nice that they are doing something in Ireland.

    We can at times say the Oscars are a joke because it is all politics at times, and if you don’t campaign and kiss their butts, chances are you don’t win the award.
