English actor Carey Mulligan believes that performers who claimed “the recognition doesn`t matter are lying.” Mulligan has been nominated for best actress at this year`s Academy Awards for her role as Felicia Montealegre in Bradley Cooper`s film `Maestro.`
The Hollywood Reporter reported citing The London Times where she said that the “nomination is just the coolest thing. Because it`s from your peers. It`s wicked.” She added, “Those who claim the recognition doesn`t matter are lying.”
She noted that she is especially gutted by Barbie filmmaker Greta Gerwig, who was not nominated for best director at this year`s Oscars, despite widespread public outrage.
“I`m gutted for Greta because I don`t know what else you can do as a director to get nominated,” Mulligan told the Times. “You make a critically acclaimed film that`s also an incredible global success, and yet you don`t get nominated?”
Mulligan also appeared in this year`s `Saltburn,` which was written and directed by Emerald Fennell and received no Oscar nominations, as per the Hollywood Reporter. “I went to the Saltburn premiere in L.A., and I sat with Em, and there were 1,700 people having the greatest experience, so I don`t know,” she said.
“I think the main takeaway is just how incredibly it was picked up. Initially, people didn`t know how to respond and then suddenly it took over the internet and now it`s become this enormous phenomenon where you can buy candles called Jacob Elordi`s Bathwater,” she said.
`Saltburn` was Mulligan`s second collaboration with Fennell, following her Oscar nomination for her portrayal in 2020`s `Promising Young Woman.` Fennell won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the same film.
