Cinema Blend has observed that Noomi is eligible to enter next year’s awards race for the Academy Awards: Noomi Rapace is a name that most of you probably still donâ€™t know. Maybe thatâ€™ll change, because she deserves an Oscar nomination for her work as Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Though the movie was first released in Sweden in 2009 Deadline confirms that she is eligible for nomination. Her performance is the best thing Iâ€™ve seen this year.
Whether or not she gets an Oscar nomination, Hollywood has already decided to sit up and take note of her talent. While she wonâ€™t show up in the unnecessary Americanization of Dragon Tattoo, the actress is getting offers for roles in all sorts of big budget American films, specifically Sherlock Holmes 2 and Mission: Impossible 4. No word on exactly what part sheâ€™d play in those movies, but sheâ€™s too talented to be wasted on a minor cameo. Hopefully sheâ€™ll also avoid being typecast as the clichĂ©, leather-wearing, punk female badass she pulls off in Dragon Tattoo and its sequels. Apparently Rapace is nothing like Lisbeth Salander in person, which only makes her performance more impressive, and her potential as an actress even more tantalizing.
