Rooney Mara's competitors in the Best Actress category were Viola Davis for The Help, Michelle Williams (as Marilyn Monroe) for Simon Curtis' My Week with Marilyn, and Glenn Close for Albert Nobbs, and the eventual winner, Meryl Streep for her performance as former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher in Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady.

One of the featured players in Fincher's Oscar-nominated The Social Network, Mara is currently attached to star in two upcoming film projects: Steven Soderbergh's The Bitter Pill, to feature Channing Tatum, Jude Law, and Catherine Zeta-Jones; and Terrence Malick's Lawless, co-starring Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, and Haley Bennett. On the IMDb, Lawless sounds like a darker version of Robert Altman's Nashville: the film is described as "two intersecting love triangles. Sexual obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas."
