The English star has been nominated in the best supporting actress category for her performance as Queen Elizabeth in The King’s Speech.
But rather than focusing on whether she can beat hot favourite Melissa Leo (The Fighter) to the award, much of the coverage of Bonham Carter this week has been about what type of eccentric dress she will wear on the red carpet.
She told ABC News she had liked the ‘really comfy’ demure outfits she wore for The King’s Speech and may choose something similar for the Academy Awards.
‘I don’t know. I might just go very straightforward and grown up,’ Bonham Carter said.
