Carey Mulligan has admitted that she will treasure this year's awards season.

The British actress has been the toast of the awards circuit as her performance in An Education proved to be her breakthrough role.

Last night she was in contention for the Best Actress Oscar, losing out to Sandra Bullock, but did win the Bafta last month.

She told People:  "It's been a really long time. It's kind of nostalgic now...

"I think I'm just going to remember this weekend really vividly forever... I'm really just trying to enjoy it. I want to let these last three days be savoured."

"I've never done a job before where I got to spend that time after it with [the cast]. That's been my favourite part. I go to different cities and travel with all these people. We all got on so well."

The actress also revealed that she has been surprised at how 'human' the other stars she has met have been.

"It's really comfortable to see how normal and grounded everyone is. When you're around these people for a whole season, these incredible actors that you've looked up to your whole life, suddenly they start to become very human. They reach out to you and they're friendly.

"Some of the most amazing actors are so sweet and kind. You just never expect that from people, real friendship and warmth."

The actress is back on the big screen later this year as she teams up with Michael Douglas, Shia LaBeouf and Josh Brolin for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
