That same year, Mulligan won a Constellation Award for her guest appearance in a Doctor Who episode entitled 'Blink', with David Tennant and Freema Agyeman.

When an American remake was made of the Danish film Brothers, Carey Mulligan appeared alongside Natalie Portman.

Mulligan's role in An Education was perhaps her most significant f 2009, as the film eventually garnered a great deal of attention when the 2010 movie award nominations were announced. The film starred Peter Sarsgaard, Emma Thompson and Rosamund Pike.
