Previously, Andrea has been nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance, the BAFTA Rising Star Award, three British Independent Film Award (for Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Breakthrough Performance), a British Academy Television Award for Best Actress, the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Featured Actress, and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play.
