Irish actress Saoirse Ronan lost out in the Best Actress category to frontrunner Frances McDormand at the 90th Academy Awards.

This year marked the 23-year-old's third Oscar nomination, but the award went to McDormand for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, who had become the odds on favourite since sweeping the boards during awards season.

During her speech, McDormand, who has a Best Actress Oscar for Fargo in 1997, paid tribute to all the female nominees across categories asking them all to stand to honour their work over the last 12 months.

Her Three Billboards co-star Sam Rockwell took home the award for Best Supporting Actor, while Best Actor went to Gary Oldman for Darkest Hour and Best Supporting Actress to Allison Janney for I,Tonya, who joked by saying, "I did it all by myself."

Irish nominees from Cartoon Saloon lost out in the Best Animated Picture category for The Breadwinner to Coco.

Best Picture became the hardest-to-predict, but the honours eventually went to The Shape of Water.  Director Guillermo Del Toro made fun of last year's Best Picture announcement blunder by checking the winners' envelope - which had been read out by Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty again this year - before accepting the award.
