“I thought she was on the bubble because the category was so tough this year,” Rooney‘s dad, Chris, told ESPN. “It was a very tough role for her, and a lot of hard work went into it, so this is her Super Bowl.”

    Hope she wins, it was an incredible performance. But at the same time being nominated at such a young age is still a huge deal.

  • Jason

    She looks like a man

  • Lisa

    Rooney is sooooooo AWESOME !

  • Dina

    Her nom spot should have gone to Tilda..period

  • Lisa

    @Jason: YOU TWIT

  • Charlie

    @Jason: Just because she doesn’t look like pretty much every hollywood actress who undergo every possible surgery to look like barbie dolls does not make her a man.

  • Jenna

    @Dina:

    Actually if you read what critics like Ebert say, Streep and Close didn’t deserve nomination this year but of course Academy loves to give them nominations for every single role.

    Glad Rooney got her nomination, she was Lisbeth I’ve imagined from the books.

  • BEAN

    She got a shiz load of piercings for her role. It’s obvious she took it seriously. I’ve never liked the plot of it – book and movie. The ending is such a disappointment but nevertheless, the played the role perfectly.

  • BloodbuzzOhio

    @Dina: No, Meryl’s nomination should’ve gone to Tilda. Or Glenn’s.

  • DJ

    She not going to win sorry first thier are better people nominated and she was ok in the movie but hernomination should’ve gone to Tilda.

  • jo

    Stop hating on this girl. She literally ruined her body, worked her azz off, and changed herself completely for this role and I’m glad she got nominated because she deserves it. Good for her.

  • jamie

    Noomi Rapace was better. SHE was Lisbeth.

  • Shiralee

    @jamie: FAIL!

  • Oprah

    I find this comment adorable, GO TEAM ROONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Babi

    Rooney was incredible at your play

    I want her to win so bad.

  • Jess

    Team Noomi !! The original and only Lisbeth.

  • Dina

    @Jenna: Nobody who has seen the original movie would comment that. Understandable though since Americans cannot follow a movie not in English.
