The Oscar Wilde awards are one of the most honorable awards that have been named after the famed Irish writer and are created by the nonprofit US-Ireland Alliance. The organization has definitely not restricted these honored awards to people born in Ireland only.
Some more personalities, who have also been honored by the organization with this honorable lot of awards, are stars like Mr. Paul Rudd and Mr. James L Brooks, who have no Irish connections.
Oscars Wilde award, for the first time has been given to a woman of Scandinavian descent i. e. Ms. Williams, who has now become the first woman to have received the Irish accolade.
Upon William’s winning of the award, Ms. Logan said that the actress well deserved the prize because being Irish means "an incandescent twinkle in the eye, the love of mad poetry and more than anything a generosity of spirit".
Ms. Williams has also been nominated for the best actress Oscar. Here the competition of the actress is with numerous big faces, including Ms. Meryl Streep, Ms. Viola Davis, Ms. Rooney Mara and Ms. Glenn Close. Hopes are higher that Sunday's ceremony will bring some good news for the actress.
