Saoirse Ronan is on the pre-Oscars talk show circuit, doing the rounds in the lead-up to the big ceremony on Sunday, March 4, during which she might win the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her star turn in Lady Bird. She’s been here before: Ronan was nominated for 2015’s Brooklyn, and, before that, for Best Supporting Actress all the way back in 2008 for Atonement. But in addition to pre-ceremony jitters, she’s also gearing up for another ritual: hearing people butcher her (very Irish) first name.
For 10 years now, Ronan has had to coach talk show hosts, red carpet interviewers, and fans on both sides of the pond on how to pronounce her name, and she’s been ramping up her campaign, even helping to come up with a song she debuted on SNL that (while not the catchiest tune) attempted to make it easy. And, in case she wins on Sunday, the most important person who needs to know exactly how to say “Saoirse” is whoever will be announcing the Best Actress winner. Typically, it would be last year’s Best Actor recipient—except that Casey Affleck, in a swirl of controversy surrounding past sexual harassment lawsuits, pulled out of appearing at the awards. Whoever the as-yet-unannounced replacement will be, we know how important it is to get the name right on the big night.
Oner decided to underscore just how beleaguered poor Saoirse is at this point and created a super-cut with the many times Ronan has had to talk about it. Funny anecdotes, increasingly wrong variations, Irish people telling her that she’s actually saying her own name incorrectly—you name it, Ronan has demurely endured it. Watch the video below, and you’ll see just how often Ronan is forced to discuss that it’s—maybe write this down—“Ser-sha, like inertia.” And don’t be distracted by the list that its creator made of all the wrong, though very entertaining, ways: “soarsay sheershay smearshay suarez saresee saorise skersha suarshay saucy sheesha swishy shooshoo soyshe sushi seahorse cirrhosis sorsay shelly sur-sha syersha sorsha.”
