On December 15, 2009, nominations for the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards were announced. Carey Mulligan was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture—Drama for her role as Jenny in An Education. Winners will be presented at the awards show on January 17, 2010.
“We had the task of making Carey look like a 16-year-old schoolgirl who blossoms before our eyes into a beautiful young woman,” said make-up artist Lizzie Yianni Georgiou. “Carey was 22 at the time and certainly didn’t look 16.
“I always feel that although most actors wear make-up on screen, it should not be so visible to the viewer, especially in the scenes before she blossoms. I feel we achieved that. The Audrey Hepburn look was also achieved with the same foundations, applied in a different way— eyelashes, eyeliner, mascara, more prominent lipstick and a sophisticated hairstyle.”
