‘They just think I’m the girl from Bring It On’: Kirsten Dunst notes she’s ‘never been nominated for’ major awards
She’s a Hollywood stalwart with an impressive resume spanning 30 years, from her time as a child star to a Hollywood leading lady.
But Kirsten Dunst has never been nominated for an Oscar, something she indirectly noted in an interview with In-Depth With Larry Flick on Sirius XM Tuesday.
‘I’ve never been recognized in my industry,’ the 37-year-old actress said.
‘I’ve never been nominated for anything,’ she went on. ‘Maybe like, twice for a Golden Globe when I was little and one for Fargo. I always feel like nobody – I don’t know, maybe they just think I’m the girl from Bring It On.’

Dunst spoke about how a pair of films she made – 2006’s Marie Antoinette and 1999’s rom-com Drop Dead Gorgeous – were panned on released but later have been well-received.
‘Well, remember when Marie Antoinette – y’all panned it? And now you all love it,’ the former Spider-Man and Virgin Suicides star said. ‘Remember Drop Dead Gorgeous? Panned. Now you all love it.’
‘It’s like interesting for me,’ she said. ‘I feel a lot of things I do, people like later.’
Dunst noted the dearth of awards or nominations she’s received, mentioning her two Golden Globe nods – in 2016 for Fargo (Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television) and in 1995 (as a child star) for Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture).

The Woodshock beauty, who is mother to one-year-old son Ennis Howard Plemons with fiance Jesse Plemons, 31, speculated she might not be as political as she could be in the complicated world of show business.
‘I am so chill – maybe I don’t play the game enough?’ she said. ‘But then I do, I mean, I do everything I’m supposed to. It’s not like I’m rude or like, not doing publicity or anything.’
Dunst, who’s also been seen in high-profile films such as Hidden Figures and The Beguiled, said she hopes her resume speaks for itself.
‘I know that all you have is your work at the end of the day – and that’s all people really care about,’ she said. ‘I’m intelligent enough to know that and have perspective.’
She added that ‘it’d be nice to be recognized by your peers.’
Dunst’s newest project is the throwback comedy On Becoming a God in Central Florida, which can be seen on Showtime Sundays at 10/9c.
