While we wait for the Golden Globes to begin (which promises new Carey pictures!) a few gallery updates have been done: firstly, high quality pictures from Carey’s appearance at the National Board Of Review Of Motion Pictures Awards Gala have been added; and secondly, Carey graced us with another event, namely the Golden Globes Party Hosted by T Magazine and Dom Pérignon where she is pictured alongside B. J. Novak (of “The Office”).

Life.com have also updated with a small photoshoot session with all the Oscar hopefuls for this year, including Carey! The entire slideshow of hopefuls can be seen here, while the image has been uploaded into our galleries here.

By turns as elegant as Audrey Hepburn and as pixie-smile adorable as Audrey Tautou, Mulligan has stolen critics’ and audiences’ hearts as Jenny Miller, a British schoolgirl stifled by England’s early-’60s air of conformity. The character sees a way out in a handsome older suitor (Peter Sarsgaard), and the actress, playing 16 brilliantly though she was 23 at the time, makes the consequences of the leap wrenchingly bittersweet.

Also, Carey has dished to People.com about her desire to have long hair once more! Famous for her pixie cut, which has accompanied her to every one of her press tours since ‘An Education’, Carey comments that she continues to keep her cute crop because she dreads the “horrible stage” of her hair looking like she’s homless! The article can be read here, excerpt available below.

“I really want long hair,” Carey Mulligan confessed to PEOPLE on Tuesday at the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Awards gala in New York, where she nabbed the Best Actress prize for her role in An Education, “But I don’t have time to grow it out.”

Explaining her freshly-shorn, exceedingly close crop, the Brit actress, who was dressed in a sleek black cocktail shift by Prada and dangly Fred Leighton earrings, said, “It was getting all shaggy. It was all growing out. It gets to that horrible stage where you look homeless.”

Unfortunately Carey did not win Best Actress at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards last night :( Instead the honour went to joint winners Meryl Streep & Sandra Bullock – congratulations ladies! However, Carey still looked simple yet elegant in a beautiful retro-looking black dress :) Expect lots of pictures asap!

Pictures of Carey at the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Awards Gala (January 12) where she won Best Actress for An Education have been added to the gallery! Congratulations!

The nominees for the Orange Rising Star Award at this year’s BAFTAs have been announced this morning in London, and it’s another interesting mix of young talent. Carey Mulligan is probably the most talked-about contender, but she’s joined by fellow nominees Nicholas Hoult, Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart and Tahar Rahim. Click on their names to cast your vote.

Mulligan made a splash with An Education last October, but also appears in Public Enemies and Brothers, and has a good Brit-flick CV that includes films like Pride & Prejudice.

Hoult is probably still best known for his turn in About A Boy years back, but this year was all grown up in A Single Man, opposite Colin Firth. Eisenberg, meanwhile, had the double-whammy of the mighty Zombieland against the sweeter indie-rom-com of Adventureland. That also starred Kristen Stewart, but she’s unquestionably best known at this point for her starring role in the Twilight saga, despite great turns in Into The Wild and Panic Room.

Finally, Tahar Rahim gave a blisteringly good performance in the much-praised French film A Prophet, the toast of Cannes and an apparent frontrunner for the Best Foreign Film Oscar this year.

“I’ve been doing things this year that I’d probably not been able to do if I haven’t got this award,” says last year’s winner Noel Clarke. “Beforehand, I was probably that guy from Auf Wiedersehen Pet, then Doctor Who came out. But once I got this award I think it enabled people to come at me with films I wouldn’t have had a sniff at before.”

“The idea of being considered an actor who moght go on to big things is quite bizarre because I’m someone who has always seen myself as a jobbing actor, not particularly a rising star,” says nominee Nicholas Hoult. “You look at the people in the category and quite a few of them are already movie stars in my opinion. It’s very odd to be in there but it’s a great privilege.”

The award’s in its fifth year: previous winners (in reverse chronological order) were Clarke, Shia LaBeouf, Eva Green and James McAvoy. The winner of this, the only BAFTA voted for by the public, will be announced at the British Academy Film Awards on February 21, and we’ll be there to cover the whole thing. You can find out more about the award here.

Lone Scherfig’s An Education is officially the frontrunner for this year’s British Academy film awards, following the publication of the Bafta longlists. Avatar, The Hurt Locker and – perhaps the biggest surprise – District 9 also emerged as strong contenders. And Moon looks like the main rival to An Education for the title of best British film.

The longlists are the result of the first round of Bafta voting, when the list of contenders is narrowed to 15 in each category. The second round, which closes 19 January and is announced two days later, whittles these down to the five nominees. The third round, of course, picks the winners, to be revealed on 21 February.

So many films are included in the longlists that they are very imprecise guides to the eventual victors. Two years ago, Atonement was the most longlisted film, but ended up winning just two Baftas (though one was best picture). This year, An Education leads the way with 17 longlist entries (including seven in the acting categories alone), followed by Inglourious Basterds with 15.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean much. More revealing are the votes by Bafta’s specialist chapters, which offer a strong clue to the likely nominees. Bafta helpfully puts an asterisk by the five candidates on each longlist which received the most support from the relevant chapters. In other words, you can tell which performances the actors voted for, or which editors were picked by their peers. Last year, the chapter selections on the longlists turned out to match almost exactly the eventual nominations.

By that yardstick, An Education still emerges as the frontrunner. It picked up seven chapter asterisks, for director, adapted screenplay, makeup and hair, costume design and three actors (Carey Mulligan, Alfred Molina and Rosamund Pike).

If the nominations do mirror the chapter votes, then the best actor prize will be contested by Andy Serkis, Colin Firth, George Clooney, Jeremy Renner and Morgan Freeman. It’s rare that Bafta recognises actors who aren’t in the Oscar race, so Serkis will do well to get a nod for his turn as Ian Dury in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, which has yet to find an American distributor.

By the same calculation, best actress would include Abbie Cornish, Mulligan, Gabourey Sidibe, Meryl Streep and Saoirse Ronan – a list notable, Streep apart, for its extreme youth. At 59, Streep is more than twice the age of her fellow contenders.

An Education is one of just two British candidates on the best film list, alongside Moon, bearing out the suggestion of a weak year for UK cinema. Bright Star, made in Britain by the Australian director Jane Campion, missed the best film cut but figured strongly in other sections. Andrea Arnold also made the director list for Fish Tank, and there were mentions here and there for Nowhere Boy, Damned United, In the Loop, Me and Orson Welles, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, The Young Victoria and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. But Ken Loach’s Looking for Eric was notable by its omission.

Also, this will probably be my last update for the next week or so. I’m still fighting bronchitis and it’s gotten worse over the past few days by turning into a sinus infection and I feel absolutely dreadful :( That aside, I want to wish everyone a Happy Holidays if I don’t get the chance later on this week so Happy Holidays! :)

First, I have decided to take down all candids of Carey and from now on we will NOT be posting candids. These are Carey’s wishes as she values her privacy and we, of course, value her opinion.
