Saoirse Ronan lost out on an Oscar for the fourth time and Twitter wants justice

Saoirse Ronan was nominated for her fourth Oscar

Justice for Saoirse Ronan.

One of the biggest awards ceremonies of the season, the Oscars were held in Los Angeles last night. Honouring the best of the best in the film industry, Ireland’s own Saoirse Ronan was up for best actress.

Her fourth time being nominated (she was previously nominated for Atonement, Brooklyn and Lady Bird), Saoirse was in the running for her portrayal of Jo March in Greta Gerwig’s Little Women.

Fans the world over were hopeful for an Irish win but it wasn’t to be as Saoirse narrowly missed out to Renee Zellweger who took home the gold for her role in the movie Judy.

A disappointing result but at least Saoirse can rest easy in the knowledge that Twitter is on her side – demanding ‘Justice for Saoirse Ronan’.

People were also less than impressed with the pronunciation of her name, but that’s nothing new.

Aren’t we all? She’ll always be our winner – whether she has an Oscar or not.
