Will one of the year’s best performances go unrecognized? ask The Hollywood Reporter. Noomi Rapace’s role in ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ is ineligible for a Globes nomination. One of the year’s best performances likely will go unrecognized. Noomi Rapace, star of the original The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, isn’t eligible for a Globes nomination; the film unspooled in Europe in 2009, which rules it out. She is not excluded, though, by the Academy. But neither the film’s Swedish producers nor U.S. distributor Music Box can afford a half-million-dollar Oscar campaign. “They wouldn’t make any more money on the film,” one insider says. “And the original Swedish producers are involved with the David Fincher remake. They don’t want Noomi to outshine Rooney Mara.” But don’t cry for Rapace — she got the female lead in the Sherlock Holmes sequel, now shooting in London.

    Noomi is a wonderful talented actress who has blossomed. Academy award or not , it does not really matter–seriously, it does not really matter. Of course we are happy she has an extended carreer outside of Europe, it will be a gain for the others. We are proud to have Noomi in Europe anyway.
