The 35-year-old actress has been around in Hollywood for over a decade, but the only time she ever appeared at the Oscars was when she was nominated back in 2010. She never returned to present.
Carey previously was nominated for Best Actress in 2010 for her work in the movie An Education and she walked the red carpet with her mom, as well as co-star Peter Sarsgaard and his partner Maggie Gyllenhaal.
This year, Carey is nominated for her work in Promising Young Woman and she’s definitely a favorite to win, though the category is so unpredictable this year.
FYI: Carey wore a Prada black strapless dress with a voluminous skirt and train in “Raso Doppio Tec” – a unique material made of silk and for a modern look.
She paired her look with a black duchess satin hard case clutch and black pleated duchesse platform heels, also by Prada.
