The nominees for the upcoming London Film Critics’ Circle Awards have just been released, and Helena is nominated twice! She has been nominated for British Actress of the Year for her performance as Queen Elizabeth in The King’s Speech and she has been nominated for Actress of the Year in a Supporting Role for her performance as the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland.
The results will be announced on February 10th, 2011. Congratulations to all the nominees!
The results are in for the Chicago Film Critics Association Awards, in which Helena was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Unfortunately Helena once again lost out, this time losing to Hailee Steinfeld for her performance in True Grit. Sadly the film also lost out in the Best Film and Best Original Screenplay categories, along with Tom Hooper and Geoffrey Rush losing in their categories. However, Colin Firth did win Best Actor, so congratulations!
I just stumbled across a behind the scenes video for Helena’s upcoming film, The King’s Speech on Helena Source and it looks sublime. It shows a scene with Helena, Colin Firth, Eve Best and Guy Pearce performing a scene several times among a look at other scenes. You can watch the video below.
A clip from Helena’s upcoming television movie, Toast has just been released, and it looks fantastic! A big thank you to Alison for posting it on the tagboard! Watch the clip below, and don’t forget to tune in on December 30th at 9pm on BBC One.
The results are in for the St. Louis Gateway Film Critics Association Awards in which Helena was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category. Unfortunately Helena lost out, and the award went to Melissa Leo for her performance in The Fighter.
A brand new still from Helena’s upcoming television film, Toast has just been released, and it’s a total contrast to the previous images. There’s also a little bit of information regarding Helena’s interest in the role of Mrs. Potter in the film. View the image in the gallery!
Bonham Carter says she wanted to play Mrs Potter because she loves people who are “complicated, not immediately unsympathetic and probably somewhat ill mentally.” She suspects Mrs Potter’s manic cleaning was a symptom of obsessive compulsive disorder, and says it was a challenge to “look vaguely credible with the cleaning. I’ve never cleaned much before. My mother says she is still waiting for me to develop my domestic aspect.”
The results are in for the recent Houston Film Critics Society Awards, and unfortunately Helena didn’t win. That said, The King’s Speech lost out on all of it’s awards, losing out in the categories: Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor in addition to Helena’s category, Best Supporting Actress.
A brand new clip has been released of Helena in the upcoming film, The King’s Speech. It shows a brief look at the relationship between Queen Elizabeth and King George, as well as Elizabeth’s distaste for Wallis Simpson. Watch the fantastic clip below, thanks to Ste posting it on the tagboard!
Helena recently sat down with Dean Richards from the Chicago Tribune and chatted about her upcoming film, The King’s Speech and her performance as Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter films. It’s a very short interview, but you can read a segment below and the whole interview via the link beneath it!
Q: How much fun did you have creating the wonderful Bellatrix from Harry Potter? A: Yes, that was fun … really fun because I got complete license to be really naughty. I kind of played her like a psychotic child, and I just thought I could get away with murder — literally. She’s kind of exhausting though because she’s so loud and screamy. I was such an externalized tantrum in Harry and then an internalized and more restrained queen for The King’s Speech. And I played another queen, the Red Queen, in Alice. I just do queens and witches now; big-headed and normal-size head queens. That’s my range.
Helena’s been nominated for another award! This time it is a Chicago Film Critics Association Award for Best Supporting Actress, for her performance as Queen Elizabeth in The King’s Speech. She has been nominated alongside Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, Hailee Steinfeld and Jacki Weaver.
Currently we are unsure of the date in which the results will be released, but I will add it to the Important Dates when we know! Congratulations to all the nominees.
