'Lady Bird' wins Golden Globe for best comedy movie

Saoirse Ronan Wins Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture

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

She received Academy Award nominations for both of those performances as well; for Lady Bird, she's already won the New York Film Critics Circle prize for best actress and has been nominated for both the Screen Actors Guild Award and the Critics' Choice Award, meaning Oscar recognition could soon be on the way.

"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.

Zuma could be a military satellite, an intelligence and reconnaissance satellite, or something unique and experimental. The Falcon 9 carrying "Zuma" lifts off from a SpaceX launch pad at Kennedy Space Center.

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.

Tonight, Ronan bested in the category Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), Judi Dench (Victoria & Abdul), Emma Stone (Battle of the Sexes) and Helen Mirren (The Leisure Seeker).

She was previously nominated twice. Lady Bird, which also stars Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, and Lucas Hedges, is one of the most critically-acclaimed movies of the year and broke the Rotten Tomatoes record as the best-reviewed movie.

Nottingham Forest striker Daryl Murphy is an injury doubt having come off in the home defeat against Sunderland. While Wenger will shuffle his pack, he is certain to be without Granit Xhaka due to a groin injury.

"Just ideal", she added.

"Saoirse and I had a conversation at the beginning of the season that should Lady Bird (the film which Ronan is nominated for Best Actress) go the distance, we wanted to work with all females - female make-up, female hairstylists, female designers - and that we would never talk about it to anyone".
