Ingrid Bolsø Berdal won The Hedda Award in the debut of the year category, also called The Hedda grant, in 2005.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"The Hedda grant, or the debut of the year award, was established two years ago, and both of the times it has been given out, it has gone to actors who admittedly are actors, but who got the grant because they had made their mark in different fields of the theatre work. The first - Bjørnar Teigen - as a playwright, the second - Lasse Kolsrud - for his adaption and direction of Bikubesong* (Song of the Beehives).

This year the Hedda grant for the first time goes to an actress because she is an actress. The recipient is young, only 25 years, but during the span of a year she has been able to make her mark in the theatre community for her scope, her joy in acting and her energy. An actress who will not settle with the first and best solutions, but who keeps seeking challenges. Two days ago she took part in the premiere Black Milk, in which she played the woman Sjura, and prior to that she had been the maid in The Caucasian Chalk Circle, Trille Troll in Prince of the Trolls, Frid in Frank and Sasha in Ivanov.

The Hedda grant 2005 goes to Ingrid Bolsø Berdal from The Norwegian Theatre."

Ingrid Bolsø Berdal was nominated for The Hedda Award 2013 in the best supporting actress category for the role of Cadette in Baby by Kirsten Thorup, directed by Jonas Corell Petersen, The National Theatre.

Ingrid Bolsø Berdal received the Amanda award 2007 in the best leading actress category for the main part of the horror movie Cold Prey from 2006. She has also had leading parts in the motion pictures Sons (2006), House of Fools (2008) and Cold Prey II (2008), and her TV parts include a role in the action series Codename Hunter.

The summer of 2013 she starts training for the female lead in the Hollywood production Hercules: The Thracian Wars.
