O’Grady listed on Oscar watch list for BEST ACTRESS:  http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/race/oscars-help-george-clooney-brad-pitt-steven-soderbergh-231111

MOVIELINE- “…Rid of Me, director James Westby’s curious hybrid of psychological drama and pitch-black comedy that, if there’s any justice, should make actress Katie O’Grady a star.” http://www.movieline.com/2011/04/the-verge-katie-ogrady.php

MOVIELINE- “…yet turns the page on those protagonists thanks in large part to O’Grady’s intrepid physical shape-shifting. She’s all in as Meris, literally from an opening scene as bold (and no doubt polarizing) as any faced by this year’s Tribeca audiences.”  http://www.movieline.com/2011/04/the-verge-katie-ogrady.php

NBC-“O’Grady almost singlehandedly carries this film, with a role that takes her from mousy alternative wallflower to angry punk to a happy medium. She’s kinda amazing to watch, she’s got one of those faces, not unlike Kristen Wiig, that she can transform from homely to pretty right before your eyes.” http://www.nbcnewyork.com/blogs/popcornbiz/Tribeca-Review-Rid-of-Me-120572404.html

indieWIRE- “Katie O’Grady charmingly inhabits the inner workings of one woman’s quest to be herself even when she’s on track to becoming someone else.” http://www.indiewire.com/article/meet_the_2011_tribeca_filmmakers_rid_of_me_director_james_westby/

VIMOOZ- “Rid of Me is a hilarious, meticulously crafted and heart-felt little film, and features a true comedic star turn from actress Katie O’Grady.”  http://www.vimooz.com/tribeca-film-festival/1035-one-on-one-with-qrid-of-meq-director-james- westby-and-star-katie-ogrady.html

NEW JERSEY NEWSROOM- Katie O’Grady is adorable as Meris Canfield.”http://www.newjerseynewsroom.com/movies/2011-tribeca-film-festival-roundup

MOVIE BUZZERS- “Katie O’Grady (Management) as Meris is both sad and hopeful. We see her as someone we can relate to, and we have no idea what she will do next. I loved the character and am looking forward to seeing what O’Grady will do next. She seems to have a similarity to Kristin Wiig in that she can pull off hilarity as well as drama.” http://moviebuzzers.com/2011/04/25/tribeca-film-festival-11-rid-review/

BIG PICTURE- She gives a bravura portrayal that will have you rooting hard for her, even while you don’t totally approve of a lot of her behaviors.” http://www.bigpicturebigsound.com/Rid-of-Me.shtml

SCREEN COMMENT- O’Grady is vulnerable and captivating and alive.” http://screencomment.com/2011/04/tff11-james-westbys-rid-of-me/
