Saoirse Ronan has charmed the pants off another awards show audience

She arrived late to the SAG stage, all flustered.

SAOIRSE RONAN DIDN’T win a SAG Award last night, but she does win a prize for the best entrance to the stage.

There they are, calling her name to present the award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, and there’s no sign of her, for five long seconds.


When she does appear, roaring ‘here?’ at someone, pointing to the podium, she confesses:

Well, that went well.

Turns out she was just having a sup of water backstage, enjoying some music from the previous segment on Straight Outta Compton, and completely missed her cue.

Shrugging it off, she turns to the audience with a cheeky “hi gang”, and they are putty in her hands.

Earlier this month, Ronan was described as ‘stealing the show’ at the New York Film Critics’ Circle awards by Vanity Fair, calling herself ‘Saoirse from the block’ and apologising to attendees for interrupting their dinner.

Saoirse’s hun bun was another winner on the night. We’re not entirely convinced she didn’t have a naggin stashed in there.
