Saoirse Ronan Network

The nominations for the 92nd annual Academy Awards were announced early Monday morning, and among those competing for a coveted acting Oscar is, for the fourth time in her career, 25-year-old Saoirse Ronan — making her the second-youngest performer, male or female, to ever receive that number of Oscar nods.

The current record-holder, Jennifer Lawrence, has Ronan beat by mere months; she was also 25 when she nabbed her fourth Oscar nomination — best actress for Joy in 2015 — but Lawrence was about four months younger at the time than Ronan currently is.

The Little Women actress is competing in the best actress category this year, and could potentially take home her first-ever Oscar win should she beat Cynthia Erivo (Harriet), Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story), Charlize Theron (Bombshell) or Renée Zellweger (Judy).

Ronan has been nominated in the category twice before: in 2016 for Brooklyn and in 2018 for Lady Bird. Prior to those nods, in 2008, she was up for best supporting actress at just 13 for her role in Atonement.

Little Women is also competing for best picture, adapted screenplay, original score, costume design and supporting actress for Florence Pugh.

The 2020 Oscars are set to take place Feb. 9 at the Dolby Theatre. The ceremony, airing on ABC, will go hostless for the second year in a row.

If Lupita Nyong’o and Saoirse Ronan star in something — especially together — we want to see it. Unfortunately, as far as we know, there aren’t any films in the works that will feature both award-winning actors. There is, however, a new ad campaign in which they costar, and even more exciting: It’s for a new fragrance, Calvin Klein Women.
The print campaign features beautiful portraits of Nyong’o and Ronan in color alongside black-and-white photos of well-known women who have inspired them. Nyong’o’s headshot is positioned alongside artistically cropped photos of Eartha Kitt and Katharine Hepburn, while Ronan’s sits to the right of Sissy Spacek and Nina Simone. All of the images sit above that of the Calvin Klein Women bottle, a rectangular glass vessel with an oversized disc-shaped cap featuring an eye graphic and designed in collaboration with Raf Simons. In fact, this is the first Calvin Klein fragrance released since Simons took on the role of the brand’s chief creative officer.

In addition to the print ads, Nyong’o and Ronan will appear in a TV campaign later this summer. Calvin Klein has also posted a video on its YouTube account of the two getting to know each other, and it’s basically the most adorable instant friendship ever caught on camera.
