Do you remember my saying, a few weeks ago, that people were getting down on Saoirse Ronan for her apparently strengthening accent? Do you remember hearing that there was a bit of Tall Poppy Syndrome levied at her? Remember the unremarkable dress she wore to the Golden Globes in January? Forget everything you know. Full Story

So Saoirse Ronan grabs an Oscar nomination, which is not really a surprise, given that the buzz about Brooklyn has been huge, and that she’s a great actress. Remember, it’s not even her first nomination – that was for Atonement, back in 2008. What was a surprise was getting an amazing email yesterday from Aisling (ASHling), telling me that some in Ireland are beginning to accuse Saoirse of ‘Irishing-up’ her accent and general persona as she did North American press. Full Story

I was happy to see Saoirse on the red carpet, not least because her sort of indomitable spirit somehow managed to treat all of Giuliana’s questions as though they were interesting and exciting. I looked forward to seeing more of her at the show… This was, of course, not to be. I don’t totally get this whole method. Full Story

Cate Blanchett, Carey Mulligan, Saoirse Ronan, they’re all previous Oscar winners and/or nominees. Brie Larson is hoping for her first nomination for her performance in Room. And it’s Brie who, right now, is considered a lock to make the list, along with Cate in Carol, followed by Saoirse in Brooklyn. Full Story

Ryan Gosling was at the Hollywood Film Awards last night to present to Saoirse Ronan. He directed her in Lost River. She was given the New Hollywood Award. And that’s basically why the Hollywood Film Awards are totally ridiculous. Since when is Saoirse Ronan “new”? She was nominated for an Oscar (for Atonement) SEVEN YEARS AGO. Full Story

Actually everyone shines in Brooklyn. Brooklyn was the first film I screened for TIFF. I sat in the theatre beside my friend Teri Hart and we just smiled at each other the whole way through. This film is sweet and warm and difficult and it’s kind. Full Story

Will Saoirse Ronan break your heart in Brooklyn?

One of the things I’m pretty sure is a universal experience of children of immigrants is you hear all of the stories of how it was, back home. How different it is here. And the same way Canadians have a running tally of all famous people who are Canadian and will tell you at the drop of a hat, any time there’s someone vaguely of your parents’ country of origin in the news or entertainment, you get a text or a call or a ‘have you read…?’ So I’m going to have to endure my mother’s smug ‘I TOLD you about Colm Toíbín’ because Saoirse Ronan is starring in Brooklyn based on his book and I might want to watch it over and over and over. Full Story

Those who don’t enjoy Wes Anderson’s films knock it for their preciousness and pretention. Sometimes, yes. But I will defend The Royal Tenenbaums every day. And how can you hate Bottle Rocket? Also, Moonrise Kingdom was one of my favourite movies of 2012. Maybe my favourite movie of 2012. Full Story

And why wouldn’t they? She’s talented and has carved out a niche playing tough but vulnerable kids, and she has proven action capabilities (see also: Hanna). A superhero role seems like the next natural step, right? But Marvel is going beyond just putting a name on a top ten list—they’re prototyping Full Story

Back in March 2011 I reported exclusively that Jennifer Lawrence was the first choice to play Katniss in The Hunger Games. At one point however, they were also interested in Saoirse Ronan, particularly after her performance in Hanna (click here for a refresher) but that she would have to really, REALLY dazzle producers to take the job away. Full Story
