Thank you to Charlotte for sending me a link to a video interview Glamour UK did with Carey and Dominic Cooper. You can watch the interview right here.
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!
I have just added 540 screen captures of Carey as Isabella Thorpe from Jane Austen’s “Northanger Abbey” to the gallery. May I also take this post to say congratulations to Ms. Mulligan on all her award nominations – I recently got to see “An Education” and found her absolutely captivating <3 Good luck!
A lot of site announcements today so please bear with me
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. If you’d like to view candids (which are usually just Carey and Shia) please use other celebrity gossip sites from now on. Thanks.
Second, thanks to Becca for the heads up that Carey will be featured in Vanity Fair’s Young Hollywood Issue which is due out in March 2010. Reportedly, the photoshoot took place a few days ago and also features Kristen Stewart, Abbie Cornish, Evan Rachel Wood, Amanda Seyfried, Emma Stone, Mia Wasikowska, and many others.
Third, Carey has been nominated for two Screen Actors Guild Awards! They are as followed:
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
Sandra Bullock as Leigh Anne Tuohy – “The Blind Side”
Helen Mirren as Sofya – “The Last Station”
Carey Mulligan as Jenny – “An Education”
Gabourey Sidibe as Precious – “Precious”
Meryl Streep as Julia Chuld – “Julie & Julia”
Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture: An Education
Dominic Cooper – Danny
Alfred Molina – Jack
Carey Mulligan – Jenny
Rosamund Pike – Helen
Peter Sarsgaard – David
Emma Thompson – Headmistress
Olivia Williams – Miss Stubbs
I came across three portrait photos from “An Education” which I assume are from the Toronto International Film Festival as Carey is wearing the same outfit. She is pictured at a different set so because of that, I’ve uploaded them to a separate category. These are really cute!
Thank you to the people at Clothes Off Our Back for emailing and letting us know that you can place a bid on a Carey Mulligan autographed “An Education” poster that’s up for auction to raise money for charity.
The auction ends December 18 so please visit Clothes Off Our Back to place a bid and support the cause!
Thanks to this blog, we’ve been able to add scans from Carey’s Vogue spread! Lots of quirky Carey! Photos can be found in the galleries here. Carey’s editorial is currently featured in the January 2010 edition of ‘Vogue’, with Rachel McAdams on the cover.
Thanks once more to Sans Artifice for the scans!
Carey has been nominated for a Golden Glode for her performance as Jenny in “An Education“! Congratulations Carey, you’re nomination is well deserved and best of luck to you!

Feel free to leave your comments, best wishes, etc. here! You never know, she may read them!
(Apologies for the lateness of this, time zones and me having bronchitis sort of slowed me down today!)
THR: Who influenced you when you were growing up?
Carey Mulligan: When I decided to do “Wall Street 2″ — because I knew that that would be the biggest thing I’d done and my face would be seen by more people than it had ever been seen by before — my mum said, “You can try it and if you hate it you can just come back and be a theater actress in London.” And I was like, that sounds (great) — it’s difficult to have a consistent theater career in London. That would be brilliant. That’s not a compromise or a Plan B.
THR: Did your parents want you to act?
Mulligan: No. We don’t have anyone in our world that’s an actor. I was very angry at them for being so against it but we just had no example of anyone in our life that — my parents ran hotels, my brother was very academic and went to Oxford. I think they just thought that I had to get some sort of a degree to have something to fall back on.
THR: Did you?
Mulligan: I got my A-levels. I was supposed to get an A and two Bs to study drama at Royal Holloway, and I got three Bs so I started working in a pub. I was a barmaid. I had just turned 18 and I looked about 12.
Carey attended The British Independent Film Awards today looking very, very chic and gorgeous! 6 photos have been added to the gallery which we will be updating when more photos come in
EDIT: Carey won best actress for “An Education“! We’re all so happy and proud, congratulations Carey!
The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures have named Carey as Best Actress for “An Education“!
Congratulations Carey! A well deserved honor!
