It's hard to stand out at the 2018 Academy Awards — there are so many beautiful people in one place that I imagine it's pretty overwhelming, especially for people who aren't career actors. But the cast of Lady Bird managed to make an incredible impression on everyone watching. They reminded us that the actors who play awkward teenagers in the movie are actually super glamorous adults in real life. The magic of Lady Bird is how relatable the film is — it transports you back to your awkward teenage years and is surprisingly emotional to watch. After seeing the movie myself, I wasn't surprised once it was announced that Lady Bird would receive five Oscars nominations. But I have to admit I was surprised at just how stunning the cast looked on the Academy Awards red carpet — the cast of Lady Bird amazed us all at the Oscars.
I seriously didn't believe that Saoirse Ronan was only a year younger than me after seeing the movie — the 23-year-old but plays a teenager in the film, and she's so convincing that I can't help but view her as a 17-year-old — but after seeing her red carpet look, I'm convinced that I want her to be my mom. Although the entire cast didn't walk the red carpet, I fell in love with the stars who did. It's hard not to root for the characters in Lady Bird both on- and off-screen, and it's inspiring to see them truly living their best lives at the Oscars. If you're my age, you'll also wonder what you're doing with your life since almost all of these movie stars are significantly younger than me. Check out some of my favorite looks from the cast.
