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.

Here’s a fantastic new interview by Deadline Hollywood: This year Hollywood types everywhere were discussing the Swedish films made from Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy of books – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest. Noomi Rapace has already won the Swedish equivalency for her portrayal of Lisbeth Salander. But the most recent actress to appear in a small foreign film, get an out–of–the–blue nomination, win the Best Actress Oscar, then land big roles in major studio tentpoles was Marion Cotillard. Noomi’s U.S. agents and managers have assured her: “You can have that same journey.” Pete Hammond recently spoke to Noomi Rapace about her role and Oscar chances: Read More

Article courtesy The Herald Scotland. I’m telling her about the London press screening for The Girl Who Played With Fire. Such was the buzz about the second instalment of the hit adaptations of the late Stieg Larsson’s bestselling Millennium novels, the cinema was mobbed. So much so, a second screening had to be hastily arranged for the overflow of critics eager to see Rapace reprise her role as antisocial hacker Lisbeth Salander. For a Hollywood film, this would be unusual. For a Swedish movie with subtitles, it’s unheard of. Then again, this is the Millennium trilogy we’re talking about. A complex, compelling saga of corruption and evil in which Salander must fend for herself in a male-dominated world, the books have sold more than 30 million copies in 40 countries. For Rapace, they have brought her the role of a lifetime, one that’s seen her become world cinema’s brightest new star. Like Marion Cotillard before her – who went from winning an Oscar for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose to starring in blockbusters Public Enemies and Inception – Rapace is being sized up for a Hollywood career.

We meet a month after she returned from a summer spent in the US, meeting big-name directors including Ridley Scott, McG and James McTeigue. “I met some wonderful people whom I respect and would love to work with,” says Rapace, who is 30. It’s a heady time – not least with her discussing roles alongside Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 4, McTeigue’s Edgar Allan Poe adaptation The Raven and McG’s spy comedy This Means War. What’s more, the US distributor of the Millennium films is already talking up a possible Oscar nod for Rapace for playing Salander. Read More
