At just 23-years-old, Saoirse Ronan has a wealth of acting experience.

Her accolades include two Academy Award nominations, and three nominations each for the British Academy Film Awards and the Golden Globe Awards. The nominee showed up to the red carpet in one incredible black dress.

Eight years after that, Saoirse was nominated again.

Timothee Chalamet, Laurie Metcalf, Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan poses with the award for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy in "Lady Bird" during the 75th Golden Globe Awards.

"I hope a film like this will make other female writers and female storytellers feel like they do have a voice and hopefully they will be supported in telling that story", Ronan said.

During her speech, the Lady Bird star was quick to thank the film's cast and crew.

Unfortunately, her name wasn't announced as the victor on either of those occasions but she finally won her first Golden Globe last night for her leading role in Lady Bird. The actress is up for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy.

As big a deal as the award is in itself, when you consider the competition she faced on the night - Emma Stone, Margot Robbie, Judi Dench and Helen Mirren - it really brings home the scale of the achievement.

"Just ideal", she added.

HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Saoirse's dress at the Golden Globes?
