Saoirse Ronan made Ireland proud yet again when she picked up the Best Actress award for Lady Bird at the Golden Globes last night. 

The 23-year-old FaceTimed her mam as she gave a short and sweet acceptance speech. 

"My mam is on FaceTime over there on someone’s phone right now, so hi," she said. 

"I have no time at all to say thank you, but I just want to say how inspirational it’s been to be here in this room tonight. I’m here with my best friend Eileen."

Saoirse has attracted a lot of praise for her performance in Lady Bird, which also won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical). 

Here's hoping she wins that Oscar too!
