Here are the very first pictures of Noomi on the red carpet at the 2011 British Academy Awards. The Best Actress category is still to be announced, but some good news so far: “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” won Best Film not in the English Language! Check back later for more information and pictures. Edit: The Best Actress Award went to Natalie Portman for “Black Swan”.
Over 1.300 DVD captures from the extended Millennium mini-series have been added to the gallery. Since the trilogy was originally planned and shot for television, the mini-series features a lot more scenes than the theatrical versions. Each film is expanded to two episodes, making the series a 6 episodes delight of 9 hours. I’m working on a special section to highlight the extended scenes and notable differences between the film and tv versions, so stay tuned.
A couple of production stills from the first two Millenium parts as well as Beyond have been added. Also, most of the Babycall production stills have been replaced in higher resolution.
Fantastic news! Noomi has received a nomination for the British Academy Award, Britain’s equivalent to the Oscars, as Best Actress for her performance in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. She shares this category with Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right), Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Right), Natalie Portman (Black Swan) and Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit). “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” has received further nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Film not in the English Language. The BAFTAs will be handed out during a live ceremony on February 12, 2011.
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!
According to the Guardian, Stieg Larsson’s ‘s partner Eva Gabrielsson plans to finish the fourth novel he left uncompleted on his death. According to early details culled from Gabrielsson’s memoir of her life with Larsson, Millennium, Stieg and Me, which is set for publication in France and Scandinavia next week, Larsson had written 200 pages of a fourth novel in his internationally successful Millennium series before he died. Gabrielsson wants to complete it because, she says, “Stieg and I often wrote together”. Larsson’s partner has refused to reveal details of the partially completed novel’s plot, but promised that its charismatic but damaged protagonist Lisbeth Salander “little by little frees herself from her ghosts and her enemies”. And, she said, she will only finish the book when she gets undisputed rights to Larsson’s work from his family, who inherited the author’s assets when he died intestate.
Noomi has received yet another Best Actress nomination for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, this time for the London Critics Circle Film Award. She shares the category with Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right), Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone), Natalie Portman (Black Swan) and Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit). This year’s ceremony will take place at the BFI London on the South Bank for the first time, on 10 February 2011, in aid of the BFI archive.
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.
Here’s a great early Christmas present for all visitors and fans of the “Millenium” trilogy. The video archive has been updated with an excerpt of the 2009 documentary “Millenium: The Story” on the life and work of Stieg Larsson, featuring an interview with Noomi on playing Lisbeth Salander (the interview was taped during rehearsals for Medealand). Then, a making of for “The Girl Who Played with Fire” – very interesting to see how the final scene of the film was made. And finally, an on-set interview with Noomi while shooting “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”. Enjoy the new clips!
