CAREY MULLIGAN TO RECEIVE CINEMACON AWARD OF EXCELLENCE IN ACTING

Carey Mulligan will receive this year’s “CinemaCon Award of Excellence in Acting,” Mitch Neuhauser, Managing Director of CinemaCon, announced today. CinemaCon, the official convention of NATO, will be held March 30-April 2 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Mulligan will be presented with this special honor at the “CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards” ceremony taking place on the evening of Thursday, April 2, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, hosted by The Coca-Cola Company, the official presenting sponsor of CinemaCon.
“Since breaking out in An Education, Carey Mulligan has brought some of the most uniquely crafted characters to film audiences around the world,” noted Neuhauser. “With her performance in the soon to be released Promising Young Woman, audiences will see Mulligan like they never have before as she once again delivers a stellar performance on the big screen.”

Mulligan can be seen this spring in Promising Young Woman, to be released on April 17 by Focus Features. Directed and written by Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve), Mulligan stars as Cassie, who everyone says was a promising young woman, until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in Cassie’s life is what it appears to be: she’s wickedly smart, cunning and living a secret double life until an unexpected encounter gives Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past.
