If you look at her career trajectory, that is.

The college senior makes her feature film debut Friday as the title character in the psychological thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene, and she’s already garnering awards buzz.

It’s something the younger sister to Mary-Kate and Ashley has always dreamed about. She just expected it would be much further in the future.

Winning an award for acting is “something that I practiced in my mirror when I was 12, thinking about when I’m 40. Not 22,” Olsen says. “I’ve never won anything in my life, except for an academic award in high school.”

There’s talk of a best-actress Oscar nomination. Tom O’Neil, editor of GoldDerby.com, says “she’s seriously in the running. … She gives a surprisingly sensitive and dynamic performance in this movie. The surprise is she shows such restraint. A lot of her emoting is internal, and we get to see it through her frightened eyes.”

Tim Appelo, a film reporter for The Hollywood Reporter, says he “would not put her as a front-runner, but I would rate her as one of the major threats. … This girl arrived like Cinderella on a rocket sled.”

Bring up the topic with the young actress, and she erupts into a fit of giggles. “It’s pretty weird! It’s my first movie coming out, it’s so weird!” Still, she acknowledges that it’s “incredibly cool, and exciting, and flattering, and it’s a huge compliment.
