The story behind Saoirse Ronan's empowering Golden Globes dress

The visibly overjoyed star took the stage with a message of gratitude to those who supported her along the way.

Lady Bird was also named Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy at the awards.

At just 23-years-old, Saoirse Ronan has a wealth of acting experience. The one-sleeved black gown featured sparkling silver detailing as well.

Eight years after that, Saoirse was nominated again.

This helps support better coffee cup disposal and reduces contamination, which is the biggest challenge in the recycling process. MPs think adding an extra 25p on to the price of a disposable cup might make people think twice.

There was disappointment for Irish Outlander star Caitriona Balfe, who lost out in the Best Actress in a TV Series - Drama category to The Handmaid's Tale's Elisabeth Moss.

Ronan bested fellow nominees Judi Dench (Victoria & Abdul), Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), Emma Stone (Battle of the Sexes), and Helen Mirren (The Leisure Seeker). She was previously nominated for Brooklyn and Atonement.

Saoirse is already an awards season frontrunner, with many believing she'll nab her third Oscar nomination just a few weeks after the Golden Globes.

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 Golden Globes are on RTÉ2 on Monday night from 9pm.
