Irish actress Saoirse Ronan celebrated her first Golden Globe win in the same way many of us would - FaceTiming her mother Monica who couldn't attend last night's show.

As expected, the 23-year-old won Best Actress ina Comedy or Musical at the 75th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, delivering a quick, but effective acceptance speech onstage. Her work in Greta Gerwig's Ladybird, which also won Best Picture, is among the most talked about performances in film over the last 12 months.

"My mam is on FaceTime over there on someone’s phone right now, so hi," she began as she took to the stage. "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.

"All of the women who I love so much in my own life who support me every single day - my mother, who’s on FaceTime. Margot, all of my friends and family and actually everyone in this room."
