Carey Mulligan receives Hollywood Supporting Actress Award for “Shame” – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Michael Fassbender has been receiving well-earned praise for his riveting performance in Steve McQueen’s “Shame,” which Fox Searchlight plans to release for an awards-season run on Dec. 2. But Fassbender’s turn, as good as it is, shouldn’t overshadow the support he receives from “Drive” star Carey Mulligan as his needy, unstable sister.

The Hollywood Film Awards are not overlooking Mulligan. The actress will receive the 2011 Hollywood Supporting Actress Award for her work opposite Fassbender in McQueen’s “Shame.” The award helps a difficult film that will be looking for an entrance point into the Oscar discussion as Searchlight fights to get broader audiences to see McQueen’s raw, powerful work.

In addition to Mulligan, the Hollywood Film Awards will recognize a slew of up-and-coming talents with this year’s Hollywood Spotlight Awards. Recipients this year include Bérénice Bejo and Jean Dujardin for “The Artist;” Elle Fanning for “Super 8;” Amber Heard for “The Rum Diary;” Andrea Riseborough for Madonna’s “W.E.;” Shailene Woodley for “The Descendants;” and Anton Yelchin for the Sundance hit “Like Crazy.”

All of the aforementioned honorees will collect their statuettes at the Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony, which will take place at the Beverly Hilton on Monday, Oct. 24.

“It is a privilege to honor Carey Mulligan, Bérénice Bejo, Jean Dujardin, Elle Fanning, Amber Heard, Andrea Riseborough, Shaileen Woodley and Anton Yelchin for their great talent,” said Carlos de Abreu, founder and executive director of the event, and the publisher of HollywoodNews.com.
