nominee, Helena Bonham Carter has starred in a wide range of film, television and stage projects both in the United States and in her native England. She earned her latest Oscar nod for her performance in the independent historical drama "The King's Speech," directed by Tom Hooper. Her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth, the wife of King George VI, also brought her Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nominations, and won BAFTA and British Independent Film Awards. Additionally, the stars of "The King's Speech" won a SAG Award for Outstanding Motion Picture Cast.

Bonham Carter was previously honored with Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for her work in the 1997 romantic period drama "The Wings of the Dove," based on the novel by Henry James. Her performance in that film also brought her Best Actress Awards from a number of critics organizations, including the Los Angeles Film Critics, Broadcast Film Critics, National Board of Review and London Film Critics Circle.

Recently, she earned a Golden Globe nomination and won an Evening Standard British Film Award for Best Actress for her performance as Mrs. Lovett in Tim Burton's screen adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," starring Johnny Depp in the title role. In 2010, she starred as the Red Queen in Tim Burton's fantastical adventure hit "Alice in Wonderland."

She had made her feature film debut in 1986 in the title role of Trevor Nunn's historical biopic "Lady Jane." She had barely wrapped production on that film when director James Ivory offered her the lead in "A Room with a View," based on the book by E.M. Forster. She went on to receive acclaim in two more screen adaptations of Forster novels: Charles Sturridge's "Where Angels Fear to Tread" and James Ivory's "Howard's End," for which she earned her first BAFTA Award nomination.

Bonham Carter's early film work also includes Franco Zeffirelli's "Hamlet," opposite Mel Gibson; "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein," directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh; Woody Allen's "Mighty Aphrodite"; and "Twelfth Night," which reunited her with Trevor Nunn. She went on to star in David Fincher's "Fight Club," with Brad Pitt and Edward Norton; the Tim Burton-directed films "Big Fish," "Planet of the Apes" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"; and the actioner "Terminator Salvation," directed by McG. In addition, she has starred in such independent features as "Novocaine," "The Heart of Me," "Till Human Voices Wake Us" and "Conversations with Other Women." She also lent her voice to the animated features "Carnivale"; Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride," in which she played the title role; and the Oscar-winning "Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit."

On the small screen, Bonham Carter earned both Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominations for her performances in the telefilm "Live from Baghdad" and the miniseries "Merlin," and a Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of Marina Oswald in the miniseries "Fatal Deception: Mrs. Lee Harvey Oswald." She also starred as Anne Boleyn in the British miniseries "Henry VIII," and as the mother of seven children, including four autistic sons, in the BBC telefilm "Magnificent 7." More recently, she starred in the BBC biopic "Enid," playing renowned children's storyteller Enid Blyton.

Bonham Carter's stage credits include productions of "The Woman in White," "The Chalk Garden," "The House of Bernarda Alba" and "Trelawny of the Wells," to name a few.
