Variety – “Mudbound” had hit a raw nerve. On the afternoon Dee Rees’ operatic drama premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last January, it was met with rapturous reviews and Oscar buzz. Surely, distributors would be duking it out for the rights to the picture with a sprawling cast, led by Mary J. Blige, Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Mitchell and Jason Clarke. […] “Mudbound” debuts against a backdrop of drastic changes in Hollywood. Deep-pocketed streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Studios are gaining ground on traditional indie players. The Academy is undergoing growing pains of its own, after adding more voters because of #OscarsSoWhite. The new members are younger and more diverse (and more likely to be female). They might not cling to the stodgy belief that a movie must play exclusively in multiplexes for awards consideration. […] If “Mudbound” crashes the Oscar race, it would be the first Netflix feature to compete at the Academy Awards. The film could break another glass ceiling: Rees, the indie darling behind 2011’s “Pariah” and 2015’s “Bessie” for HBO, could become the first black woman ever nominated for best director. (Only four women in the Oscars’ 89-year history have been nominated for the award, with Kathryn Bigelow the only one to win.)


Mulligan doesn’t often watch her movies at the premiere. “I’m terrible at sitting through,” she says. At Sundance, she wasn’t going to stay for “Mudbound” until she realized that it was a team effort. “I love being there for Dee in that moment, to see people respond to her and her work,” she says. When Mulligan saw herself in her first lead role, in 2009’s “An Education,” she didn’t have high expectations. “I rang my mum and I was like, ‘I’m so boring to watch. I don’t do anything. My face is so boring. It’s going to be a disaster,’” she recalls. “And then it was bought and people were going to put it in a cinema. And I suddenly had a publicist and a stylist.” “An Education” propelled Mulligan to the Oscars and instant stardom. Then came the tricky part. At a time when studios are churning out comic-book movies and bland franchises headlined by men (“Pirates of the Caribbean,” “The Fast and the Furious”), Mulligan wants to consistently sink her chops into meaty parts. That’s challenging in general but even harder for women in Hollywood.

ELLE US has revealed its annual ELLE Women in Hollywood covers, and it’s no surprise Carey is on one of them. I’ve just added the scan of the cover in ultra high-quality, as well as the first outtake taken from the shoot in the gallery, photographed by Paola Kudacki:

Mulligan’s Skylight costar, Bill Nighy, on the actress’ bravery and do-everything attitude: “There is no shtick. She arranges to be unarmed, the better for things to happen. And she is completely dreamy to do business with, charming and kind and brave as f–k.”

​On the magic of shooting The Great Gatsby: “The most old-Hollywood thing I’ve ever done: flowers in my dressing room, six months to shoot. You step into Baz Luhrmann World and everything is heightened.”

​On filming her newest film, Suffragette: “It was a really buzzy, fun, exciting set to be on, a lot of women doing stuff that we don’t ordinarily get to do. I’ve never run away from a bomb exploding before. Or been thrown in prison.”
