The Critics Choice’s Best Actress award, for which Noomi was nominated, went to Natalie Portman. I wasn’t able to watch the live broadcast, but as far as I’m concerned, Noomi was not present at the awards presentation.

Don’t miss the Critics Choice Movie Awards, airing tonight at 9pm/et on VH1. Noomi is nominated as Best Actress for “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” alongside Annette Bening, Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Williams and Jennifer Lawrence. This will mark Noomi’s first appearance at a televised American awards ceremony, and – unless the Oscars don’t surprise us with some Noomi love – will probably be her only one since her performance was overlooked by most other award juries in the USA. Be sure to find all results, pictures and video on the Critics Choice Awards here tomorrow!

Noomi has won the Satellite Award as Best Actress in a Drama for “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”. The film was also awarded as Best Foreign Language Film. Since the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards have passed Noomi as a potential nominee, it’s nice to see her mentioned with some international recognition for her stunning work. Noomi wasn’t present at the awards show since she is still filming the “Sherlock Holmes” sequel in London, but she sent a very nice recorded message, which you can see at the video archive.
