It is an impressive fourth Oscar nod for the 25-year-old, who was previously nominated for Atonement (Best Supporting Actress, 2008), Brooklyn (Best Actress, 2016) and Lady Bird (Best Actress, 2018).

As the nominations were announced, Saoirse's mother Monica and dog Fran were cheering her on at home.

In a video sent to the Ray D'Arcy radio show, Monica and Fran cheer on Saoirse as her name is read out.

Fran is also supporting Saoirse with a t-shirt that says: "Good luck Saoirse from your Little Woman".

This isn't Fran's first brush with fame, as the actress gave her dog a shout out on national radio last month.

She revealed that Fran is named after the character played by Peter Cooney in the crime drama Love/Hate.
