Sally Sparrow actress Carey Mulligan is nominated for a BAFTA, reports the BBC, for her role in the British film An Education.
Just three years ago Mulligan was recording scenes in the Steven Moffat award-winning classic Blink – now she’s on the road to a major or award as well as appearing with Michael Douglas and Shia LaBeouf in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, due for release later this April.
Mulligan has received rave reviews for her performance in An Education – which also stars Emma Thompson, Peter Sarsgaard, Dominic Cooper and Rosamund Pike – and has also been honoured with Golden Globe, Screen Actor Guide Award and Critics Choice Awards nominations.
Competition for the BAFTA comes from Meryl Streep and Audrey Tautou, while An Education’s director Lone Scherfig is also nominated, as is the film itself, which was scripted by Nick Hornby.
The BAFTA Film Awards take place on at London’s Royal Opera House on Sunday, 21st February.
