Alicia attended the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards yesterday, as she was nominated for both Best Actress in a Motion Picture for her work in ‘The Danish Girl’ and Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her work in ‘Ex Machina’. She sadly did not received any of the televised awards, which went to Brie Larson (Room) and Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs). You can already check out high-quality images of the event into our gallery, with many more likely to be added soon.

W Magazine has just unveiled its annual Best Hollywood Actors of 2015 covers, and we’re absolutely not surprised Alicia is on one of them. She was photographed by Peter Lindbergh and I have to say the photoshoot looks incredible. The first outtake has been added to the photo gallery, but stay tuned as more are likely to be added later on.
Alicia Vikander, who surely had the most varied repertoire of any of her peers, was a hypnotic android (Ex Machina), an unflappable World War I nurse (Testament of Youth), and the confused, loyal wife of a transgender woman (The Danish Girl).
I’ve just added the first two production stills of Alicia as Isabel Sherbourne in The Light Between Oceans. The movie tells the story of a lighthouse keeper and his wife (Alicia) who live off the coast of Western Australia and raise a baby they rescued from an adrift rowboat. Rachel Weisz and Alicia’s partner in real life, Michael Fassbender, also star in the upcoming-2017 movie.
