Millie Bobby Brown, Tiffany Haddish, And Everyone Else Who Really Won This Awards Season


Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, Lady Bird, was praised by moms and daughters everywhere for its heart-wrenching, funny, and honest portrayal of two women concurrently entering new stages in their lives: Lady Bird (Saoirse Ronan), a girl eager to break into womanhood, and her mom (Laurie Metcalf), a woman terrified of breaking out of motherhood.

Metcalf’s nuanced performance as a mother struggling to fully connect with her daughter captures the complicated emotions behind a least 90 percent of fights between mothers and daughters, while Ronan’s reactionary teenager grasping for something bigger than the modest small-town life her parents gave her, only to realize the true value of that gift after she’d moved on, portrayed the range of emotions young women experience during that scary transition between high school and college.

Gerwig, frequently nominated both for her screenplay and directing throughout the season, was only able to snag the Best Screenplay award at the Spirit Awards, repeatedly falling in line behind Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water and Jordan Peele for Get Out. Metcalfe’s acting was consistently overshadowed by Allison Janney’s much flashier mom role in I, Tonya this awards season, while Ronan was able to match Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’s Frances McDormand only at the Golden Globes — where the women also celebrated their only Best Picture win.
