Michelle Williams named 'honorary Irishwoman'

Washington , Sat, 25 Feb 2012 ANI

Washington, Feb 25 (ANI): Michelle Williams has become the first "honorary Irishwoman" to win an Oscar Wilde award for her role in 'My Week With Marilyn'.


The ceremony celebrates Irish cinema talent but one doesn't necessarily have to hail from the country to receive an award.


Not being born in Ireland is no barrier to accepting an award as, in previous years, the organisation has honoured stars such as Paul Rudd and James L Brooks who have no Irish connections.


'Hugo' screenwriter John Logan presented Williams with her award and acknowledged that while she was not Irish, she had the qualities that made a person Irish.


"An incandescent twinkle in the eye, the love of mad poetry and, more than anything, a generosity of spirit," Contactmusic quoted Logan as telling Moviecitynews.


Williams said she was "honoured" to receive the prize.


"I consider it from a land and from a people who are known for poetry, for literature and lore, for myth and legend and in a business that's ultimately about storytelling, I'm honoured to be acknowledged by the original storytellers," Williams said. (ANI)
