Carey has been awarded Best Actress for “An Education” – congratulations!!
Last night (Feb 07), Carey, along with Saoirse Ronan, Emily Blunt and Michael Stuhlbarg were the receprients at the 2010 Virtuoso Awards as part of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Pictures are being added to the gallery asap – and I must note how much I love Carey’s dress, it’s different and beautiful
Carey has been nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her role as Jenny in An Education and An Education has also been nominated for Best Picture!
Congratulations to Carey and the rest of the cast!
Pixar’s Up has been named film of the year at the Richard Attenborough Film Awards, presented annually by regional film critics across the UK.
Carey Mulligan was named best actress for An Education, getting an additional prize for being the year’s rising star.
James Cameron has won the filmmaker of the year prize for Avatar, while Moon star Sam Rockwell was named best actor.
Lord Attenborough has been declared an “all-time legend” at the awards, which have borne his name since 2008.
“I offer my warmest congratulations to this admirable set of winners and I am honoured to be included amongst them,” the 86-year-old director said.
Carey looked amazing at tonight’s SAG Awards, wearing a Lanvin gown and accessorizing with jewellery by Fred Leighton – she’s wearing 19th century diamond snake pendant earrings, a diamond line bracelet and a pear-shaped diamond ring. Photos have already been added to the gallery, and more will be added as they arrive! Good luck to Carey for her Best Actress in a Drama nomination, and to the cast of An Education for their Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture!
Unfortunately Carey did not win, the award went to Sandra Bullock for The Blind Side – congratulations to her. We’re still keeping our fingers crossed for an Oscar nomination for Carey but we must all remember that she is still very “new” in this industry and so she’s got plenty of time yet for awards
