It’s been a great week for Carol, as the drama received five Golden Globe nominations for Best Picture, Actress (Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara), director (Todd Haynes) and score (Carter Burwell). Mara will also receive the Spotlight Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival for her work, and the gala takes place Saturday January 2 at the Palm Springs Convention Center.
“Rooney Mara’s nuanced portrayal of Manhattan shopgirl Therese Belivet opposite Cate Blanchett’s Carol Aird brings integrity and depth to this story of forbidden love set against the sexual mores of the 1950s,” said Film Festival Chairman Harold Matzer. “For this brilliant performance, which adds yet another laurel to her diverse career, it is an honor to present Rooney Mara with the 2016 Spotlight Award.” Previous Spotlight honorees include Jessica Chastain, Julia Roberts, and Amy Adams.
Mara’s credits include The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Trash, Side Effects, and The Social Network. The Palm Springs International Film Festival runs January 1-11.
