Ahead of the Oscars next month, Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan weighs how many dates you should have before you invite your partner to the awards show.

“It’s a big leap, it depends how the dates are going, I guess?” Ronan said wryly during what turned into a hilarious BBC Radio 1 appearance. She said that if the vibe is good, she could take someone on their third date, but if you’re still feeling things out, she would recommend waiting until date 10.

It’s also important to invite the right person to the biggest awards show given that you have to walk the red carpet, spend the majority of the evening with them — and do the loser face in front of them should you not win in your category.

“And then I’ve got to do my Loser Face in front of this person I don’t know that well, and do they do the loser face with you?” Ronan said. “How are they going to comfort you when you lose and will you want them to? That’s why you bring your mom.”

Ronan is nominated in the Best Actress category for her starring role in Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird.” She won the award at the 2018 Golden Globes.

“Lady Bird” is nominated for four other Academy Awards, including Best Director, Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Laurie Metcalf.

The 90th Academy Awards will take place on March 4.
