The Brooklyn actress featured alongside?Jane Fonda, Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlotte Rampling, Brie Larson, Rachel Weisz, Lupita Nyong?o, Alicia Vikander, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (who has been incredible in everything we’ve seen her in so far and deserves your attention), Helen Mirren, Saoirse Ronan, and Diane Keaton – who clearly sticks to her distinctive style guns no matter what. 13 of the best actresses currently on the screen, we’ll be having that. Although maybe our love for veteran Charlotte Rampling isn’t what it used to be.

Rampling said of the outcry over the lack of non-white nominations,??One can never really know, but perhaps the black actors did not deserve to make the final list.”

Not cool Chaz.

Ronan and company were shot by famous photographer?Annie Leibovitz with make-up by our all time favourite Instagrammer Pati Dubroff, who posted this portrait from the shoot last night.
