2017 Awards Circuit In Line Series: 25 Actresses for an Oscar Win

13. Saoirse Ronan

BEST PERFORMANCE: “Brooklyn” (2014)

Deemed around these parts as the second coming of Kate Winslet, the young Saoirse Ronan got our attention (as well as Oscar’s) in “Atonement” before leading the charge in films like “The Lovely Bones” and “Hanna.” She managed her second nod for “Brooklyn,” narrowly losing to Brie Larson for “Room.” Four films are on the horizon for the beautiful actress, including “The Seagull” with Elizabeth Olsen, and Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut “Lady Bird.”  Fairly confident…her moment will come very soon.
