On Sunday (07 June) were the 69th Annual Tony Awards, where Carey Mulligan was nominated for her role in “Skylight”. Unfortunately the main accolade went to Helen Mirren, but Carey certainly wowed on the red carpet in a gorgeous oxblood dress by Balenciaga. High-quality images are now up in the gallery.
The 2015 Tony Awards have just been revealed, and Carey Mulligan has been nominated for Best Leading Actress in a Play for her role in “Skylight”, whilst her co-star Bill Nighy has been nominated for Best Lead Actor. The play itself has also been nominated for Best Revival, Best Featured Actor (Matthew Beard), Best Director (Stephen Daldry), Best Scenic Design and Best Lighting. Congratulations to the cast and crew!

On Sunday night, Carey’s 2013 film The Great Gatsby was awarded two awards at the 86th Academy Awards, for Best Achievement in Costume Design (Catherine Martin) and Best Achievement in Production Design (Catherine Martin and Beverley Dunn).
The Great Gatsby triumphed over fellow nominees American Hustle, The Grandmaster, The Invisible Woman and Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave for Best Costume Design, turning Martin into the most successful Australian in Oscars history.
Martin spoke to ABC before the ceremony and praised the nominations for The Great Gatsby team: “Along with the AACTA awards, it marks a great shift, I think, for our industry in recognising that we can make any story in [Australia].” Catherine Martin now has four Oscars after previously winning for her work on Moulin Rouge!, also directed by her husband Baz Luhrmann.
Baz Luhrmann’s blockbuster The Great Gatsby has led the nominations for the 3rd annual AACTA Awards with 14 nods, closely followed by Kim Mordaunt’s independent film The Rocket
The two are vastly different Australian features. The Great Gatsby is a razzle-dazzle adaptation of an American classic novel, while The Rocket, which earned 12 nominations, is a low-budget, foreign-language feature, filmed entirely in Laos with a lead actor plucked from the streets.
The two features are also up for Best Film alongside Dead Europe, Mystery Road, Satellite Boy and The Turning.

The Coen brothers’ Cannes Grand Prix-winning Inside Llewyn Davis picked up another award ahead of the coming Oscars season with victory in the best feature category at the Gotham independent film awards.
The Coens’ poignant and elliptical vision of New York’s 1960s folk scene, which stars Carey Mulligan, Oscar Isaac and John Goodman, was a fitting winner for a festival that began life as a celebration of indie film-making in America’s north east. The Coens will be hoping the film helps add to their collection of four Oscars next March.
The Gotham awards are not generally seen as an accurate bellwether for Oscars success, though two of last year’s winners (Moonrise Kingdom and Beasts of the Southern Wild) were nominated for prizes by the Academy.
Carey has appeared in Empire’s 100 Sexiest Movie Stars poll, coming in at #27. Here’s what they have to say about her:
#27 CAREY MULLIGAN
We may have spotted her in TV’s Bleak House or Trial & Retribution, or even as Kitty in Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice. But we can pinpoint the moment we all fell for Carey Mulligan thanks to two words: Sally Sparrow. Her appearance in the time-twisting Doctor Who episode Blink cemented her appeal, and she’s built from there with beautiful work in Public Enemies, Drive and The Great Gatsby.
An Education saw her Oscar nominated as defiant schoolgirl Jenny Mellor in a role that seemed made for her. But there’s also her troubled chanteuse in Shame…
