The first official batch of stills from ‘Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps’ have appeared online, and one of them features Carey! Hopefully more will be added asap The film has also been given the release date of April 23, 2010. Here’s a synopsis of the film:
As the global economy teeters on the brink of disaster, a young Wall Street trader (played by Shia Labeouf) partners with disgraced former Wall Street corporate raider Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas, reprising his original role) on a two-tiered mission: To alert the financial community to the coming doom, and to find out who was responsible for the death of the young trader’s mentor. Meanwhile, Gekko tries to reconnect with his cute as a button daughter Winnie (Carey Mulligan).
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
I’ve added a new photoshoot of Carey to the gallery. These aren’t really “new” as they were taken on October 18, 2009 but they have just been released now. Carey looks so different, I’m actually kind of digging the hair! Enjoy

We are aware that the gallery is not working. In fact, it hasn’t been working since Wednesday and we are trying to find a solution as to why it isn’t and so far we haven’t been able to. We are working with our host to resolve the issue. Please be patient.
The Screen Actors Guild has tapped more stars to hand out prizes at the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick are among those recently announced to take the presenting duties during the event.
Beside the singer/actor and the “Up in the Air” beauty, the awards show will also see Sigourney Weaver, Kyra Sedgwick, Ray Romano, Jeremy Renner, Carey Mulligan, Anthony Mackie, Felicity Huffman and Brian Geraghty announcing the winners that night. However, it has not been known the categories that they will read.
Previously, the awards show’s organizers have announced some celebrities who will show up on the stage, mentioning the names such as Alec Baldwin, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Additionally, Anna Paquin, Meryl Streep, Jane Lynch, Michelle Monaghan, Chris O’Donnell and Stanley Tucci will make appearances at the ceremony.
The 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards will honor movies and TV in all 15 categories. The show will additionally present Betty White with Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement award. A gala for the event will be held on January 23 in Los Angeles and broadcast live by TNT and CBS starting at 8 P.M. ET/PT.
One of the most bittersweet moments of last night’s Golden Globes occurred during the deployment of the Best Actress – Drama prize. Requisite shots of each nominee accompanied Mickey Rourke’s reading of their names: Emily Blunt, grinning in rather extreme close-up; Sandra Bullock, the favorite, perched and ready to rise; Helen Mirren, the distinguished elder; Gabourey Sidibe, the gleeful neophyte… and just prior to Sidibe, Carey Mulligan, the one-time favorite for this prize and perhaps every other in 2009, meekly clapping, dwarfed in the back of the room, all but invisible with the tiny entourage from her breakthrough An Education. The viewer knew just as well as Mulligan did: She didn’t have a chance. But why?
After all, it was almost a year ago when An Education’s Sundance premiere sparked instant Oscar chatter for Mulligan, not to mention a lightning-quick, seven-figure distribution deal with awards-savvy distributors Sony Pictures Classics. The 24-year-old ingenue’s performance as Jenny Miller — faltering at the fork in the road leading to either bohemian early-’60s living or a conservative Oxford education — yielded just the right class, brass and vulnerability to dazzle critics and Oscar voters. Assuming Sony Classics could strategically cultivate Mulligan’s It-Girl status in the months to come, the general public would fall in line behind them. Apart from Mo’Nique’s own towering performance in Precious, she was the closest thing to an Oscar lock Sundance had.
