After a stint as lead singer of the band the Sugarcubes, she embarked on a solo career with the release of 1993’s Debut. In 2000 she won the Cannes Film Festival’s Best Actress prize for Lars von Trier’s Dancer in the Dark and was also nominated for an Academy Award for “I’ve Seen It All,” a song she wrote for the film’s soundtrack.
