Saoirse Ronan Was Claimed as 'British' By Sky News & That Is Not Okay With Fans

Saoirse Ronan brightens up the 2016 BAFTA Los Angeles Awards Season Tea held at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on Saturday afternoon (January 9) in Los Angeles.

The 21-year-old Brooklyn actress was joined at the event by British actors Will Poulter and Ed Westwick.

The night before, Saoirse spoke on stage during the SAG-AFTRA Foundation conversations event at Zanuck Theater.

Just after the BAFTA nominations were announced this week, a Sky News anchor “claimed” Saoirse as British — and fans are not happy about it.

“If we look at the leading actress category, I think we can take Saoirse Ronan as one of ours. She’s in Brooklyn. She’s nominated,” the reporter said.

Check out the tweets below!

FYI: Saoirse is wearing a Lela Rose dress at the tea. She is wearing a Temperley London dress at the screening. Saoirse is also wearing Jennifer Meyer earrings.
