Saoirse Ronan has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in Greta Gerwig's Little Women.

The Dublin actress, who previously starred in Gerwig's Lady Bird, has the leading role in the film opposite Meryl Streep, Timothee Chalamet and Emma Watson.

Saoirse (25) previously won a Golden Globe for Ladyb Bird and has three Oscar nominations and a further three Golden Golbe nominations under her belt.

This year she faces stiff competition in a strong category with Cynthio Erivo (Harriet), Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story), Charlize Theron (Bombshell) and Renee Zellweger (Judy).

Fellow Irish star Andrew Scott has also been nominated for the first time.  He is up for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for his role in Phoebe Waller Bridge's Fleabag.

Scott will be up against the legendary Alan Arkin as well as Kieran Culkin for his role in Succession, Stellan Skarsgard for the brilliant Chernobyl and Henry Winkler for his role in Barry.

Joaquin Phoenix, meanwhile, has been nominated for Best Actor - Drama for his role in Joker.  He is joined by fellow nominees Christian Bale (Ford v Ferrari), Antonio Banderas (Pain and Glory), Adam Driver (Marriage Story) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes).

Best Motion Picture - Drama will be hotly contested by The Irishman, Marriage Story, 1917, Joker, and The Two Popes while Irishman director Martin Scorsese will compete with Joker director Todd Philips, 1917 director Sam Mendes, Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) and Parasite director Bong Joon-ho for Best Director - Motion Picture.

Netflix will be celebrating today's nominations as the film Marriage Story leads with six nominations followed by The Irishman with five.  Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has also bagged five nominations.

In television, Chernobyl (HBO), The Crown and Unbelievable (both Netflix) each secured four nominations while there were three apiece for Succession, Barry, Big Little Liies (all HBO), Fleabag (Amazon), Fosse/Verdon (FX), The Kominsky Method (Netflix) and new Apple series, The Morning Show.

The Golden Globes, overseen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, recognise the best in TV and film each year.

The nominations were announced live at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills by presenters Dakota Fanning, Susan Kelechi Watson and Tim Allen.
