Carey Mulligan, Kevin Spacey and Philip Seymour Hoffman are among the Hollywood stars who have been nominated for Drama Desk Awards in recognition of their New York stage performances.
Mulligan’s turn in Through a Glass Darkly has landed her in the Outstanding Actress category, which also includes fellow Brit Joely Richardson (Side Effects).
In the running for Outstanding Actor, Spacey (Richard III) and Seymour Hoffman (Death of a Salesman) face competition from the likes of James Corden (One Man, Two Guvnors) and Hugh Dancy (Venus in Fur).
Pop star Ricky Martin has nabbed a nod for Outstanding Actor In A Musical for Evita, which is also up for the Outstanding Musical Revival crown.
The 57th annual Drama Desk Awards look set to be a big night for Broadway production Follies and the off-Broadway show Death Takes a Holiday – both landed 10 nominations each.
The trophies will be presented during a ceremony at The Town Hall in New York City on 3 June (12).
Variety are reporting that Carey is no longer attached to the untitled Spike Jonze/Charlie Kaufman project due to scheduling conflicts.
Rooney Mara is in final negotiations to join Spike Jonze’s upcoming project now that Carey Mulligan has fallen out due to scheduling conflicts.
Untitled project stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Samantha Morton. Jonze penned the script and is set to direct the pic about a man who falls in love with the voice of a computer. Details of Mara’s role are unclear.
We had a bit of a problem with the old Video Archive, so I have just finished creating a new one which looks slightly nicer than the original did! I have re-added all the old videos, and have started added some new clips. First up is Shame – due to the content/language, there are only two short clips, but one of them is the full 5-minute rendition of Carey singing New York, New York. More on the way, so stay tuned!
I have just added 499 HD/Blu-Ray quality screen captures of Carey from her 2011 drama Shame, which she starred as the emotionally-damaged Sissy, alongside the fantastic Michael Fassbender. Remember to pre-order your copy of the film, UK visitors can order here (with a release date of May 14) and US visitors can order here (with a release date of April 17). Enjoy!
Please note that many of these captures contain graphic imagery and nudity and are therefore NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

Happy Easter everyone! A little gallery update this afternoon – I have been replacing a lot of the previous LQ images with HQ versions instead, and you can now find some gorgeous high-quality shots from three of Carey’s latest public appearances – the Shame press conference (Oct 28), the NY Times Arts & Leisure Weekend (Jan 08) and the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards (Jan 19), which also has over 40 new additions. Enjoy!

Johnny Depp and Rob Marshall are working to make a new version of The Thin Man, the Dashiell Hammett novel about drunk detective socialite Nick Charles, his charming young wife Nora and the unusual family mystery in which they become embroiled.
The question is: who plays Nora? Deadline says there is a shortlist that will begin to meet with Warner Bros. next week. Names on the list include Eva Green, Amy Adams, Emma Stone, Carey Mulligan, Rachel Weisz, Kristen Wiig, Emily Blunt and Isla Fisher. That is, just about every smart actress with free time in her schedule and an interest in starring opposite one of the few semi-legit movie stars in the business. And without knowing more about what Marshall, Depp and WB are specifically looking for, it seems pointless to try to play the guessing game based on a list that long.
The original The Thin Man, released in 1934, spawned a series of comic detective films and, later, even a TV show, and that precedent is fueling fire that the material might become a hit once again.
Okay, so it looks as though most film/media blogs are calling this the first official poster, but it looks as though it’s just a fan made one. What a pity! It’s a gorgeous shot, and really sets the tone of the film – so enjoy it anyway!

I’ve just found another new photoshoot from 2011 This is a lovely set, Carey looks so happy in every picture. Enjoy!
Photoshoots & Portraits > from 2011 > Session 006
Sorry things have been a bit quiet around here lately – Carey has been very busy going straight from wrapping The Great Gatsby to filming Inside Llewyn Davis, and as previously mentioned, we don’t post any on-set candids or paparazzi pics in respect of Carey’s privacy. However, I have been rummaging about for a few bits to keep the site updated, and came across 2 photoshoots that I hadn’t added to the gallery – one from 2010, which was for Carey’s Elle UK cover, and one from 2011, which looks like it came from the same shoot as The Hollywood Reporter set. Enjoy!
Carey Mulligan, George Clooney, Damian Lewis and Hugh Bonneville were among the famous faces who attended a star-studded White House dinner during a visit by the British Prime Minister.
The actors – along with American Vogue editor Anna Wintour, The Wire‘s Idris Elba, Downton Abbey’s Elizabeth McGovern and movie mogul Harvey Weinstein – were at the glitzy event held by US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle in honour of David Cameron and wife Samantha.
English folk-rock band Mumford & Sons – a favourite of Mrs Cameron – and US R&B star John Legend provided entertainment, while produce from the White House’s own kitchen gardens was used in the winter harvest-themed meal.
Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson, Olympic gold medallist Denise Lewis and golf star Rory McIlroy were also on the guest list, along with politicians George Osborne and William Hague.
The US President praised the Camerons for their “strength” as parents as he toasted them at the dinner, held in a marquee on the South Lawn.
