Big congratulations to Noomi for winning the 2011 Empire Award as Best Actress for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. She was nominated alongside Emma Watson (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part One), Olivia Williams (The Ghost), Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech) and this year’s Oscar winner Natalie Portman (The Black Swan). Regarding Rapace, Empire wrote, “Lisbeth Salander – the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – is already a major literary heroine, and the unusual-looking, intense Rapace (not as tiny as the girl in the books, but otherwise ideal) is liable to become an international star with this role (which she’s reprised in the two already-made follow-ups). The best Euro action heroine since Anne Parillaud’s Nikita and the most influential female thriller lead since Jodie Foster’s Clarice Starling, Lisbeth is an interesting mix of credibly screwed-up victim and resourceful superheroine – making good use of a stun-gun, a dildo, a tattoo needle and a golf club in kicking against the pricks.” Pictures from the ceremony have been added to the gallery.

Additionally, four video clips from the Empire Awards have been added to the archive, including Noomi’s speech and interviews from the red carpet and the press room. Enjoy!
