Ronan is no stranger to awards season buzz — she received nominations for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for Atonement, making her one of the youngest actresses to receive an Oscar nomination.

John Crowley’s romantic drama Brooklyn (2015) has won Ronan a host of awards, including the Detroit Film Critics Society award for Best Actress, the British Independent Film Award for Best Actress and the Hollywood Film Awards’ New Hollywood Award.

She missed out on the Best Actress Golden Globe for her role as Eilis Lacey but still has the Academy Awards, BAFTAs and SAG awards to look forward to.
