BWW Profile: Keira Knightley Oscar-Nominated Star of Stage and ScreenBWW Profile: Keira Knightley Oscar-Nominated Star of Stage and Screen
by Courtney Henley - Feb 16, 2015

She was in Pirates of the Caribbean (which I may or may not be able to quote from beginning to end), she was ridiculously talented, she wasn't that much older than me, and she was British (which, for some strange reason, I always wanted to be when I was young). Then, in 2006, she was nominated for an Academy Award for her role of Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice, and that made her even more awesome. As I got older, I began to recognize how good she actually was in all of those movies - a thought which ran through my mind once again when I saw her performance in The Imitation Game, for which she received her second Oscar nomination.
