2004 Cosmo Awards:
By the time Kirsten Dunst appeared as the child vampire Claudia in 1994's Interview With the Vampire, she had already been acting on the silver screen for five years (first appearing in an uncredited role in Woody Allen's New York Stories and as the American voice for the titular Japanimation character in Kiki's Delivery Service in 1989). By the time Spider-Man rolled around in 2002, she had already appeared in two dozen films, many in starring roles. But it was her turn in the comic book adaptation that made her a box office superstar.
For all of the hype given to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, most of it has been given to co-stars Jim Carrey and especially Kate Winslet. But the Cosmos are about giving recognition to the unrecognized, so perhaps it shouldn't be too surprising that Kirsten Dunst earned an unexpected Supporting Actress nod for the quirky film based on Charlie Kaufman's script.
