Director Lenny Abrahamson said Brie Larson winning the Golden Globe for Best Actress for their movie Room was “like a dream”.
The Irish were well-represented at the awards, with five nominations on the night.
Room tells the story of a young mother held captive in a tiny garden shed with her five-year-old son, who is played by newcomer Jacob Tremblay.
Emma Donoghue adapted the script from her 2010 novel of the same name.
“It was an amazing night, it was bizarre and very starry. The red carpet was the longest thing I’ve ever seen – it was like a red carpet city,” Lenny told the Herald. Continue reading

While Brie Larson has long been recognized as a very strong talent–by those who saw Short Term 12 in particular–Room really allows her to show the true extent of her acting chops. Not only did Larson have the physical challenges of portraying a woman abducted and held captive in a confined space for many years (and filming in that tiny space), but she also had to make the then eight year-old Jacob Tremblay into her right-hand man. Tremblay plays Jack, the son of Larson’s character Ma, and somehow the duo created an incredible on-screen connection that caries this film into potential Best Picture territory. With director Lenny Abrahamson crouched in the bathtub of ‘room’ or in a hole in the floor, Larson brought something extraordinary to life. “I didn’t know that I could do what I could do until making this movie,” she says. Currently working on Kong: Skull Island, co-starring Samuel L. Jackson, Larson talks about what went into doing Room.
