We are a little over a week away from the 86th Academy Awards, and all eyes are on Cate Blanchett. She has swept the awards season so far, winning every major and minor award for Best Actress. All this publicity has led to a short piece with Blanchett that aired on 60 minutes. The 13 minute interview was with Lesley Stahl.
It’s light on new information, but it should bring Blanchett and Blue Jasmine back into the limelight, and front of mind for Academy voters.
Part of the video talks about the scope of her film work. We want to know what your favourite Blanchett film is, in our very first poll. You can find it on the right.
On 2nd March, we will be on the edge of out seats. Blanchett had the best odds of winning over any category, but the last few weeks has seen a strong anti-Blanchett movement in the tabloid world. We hope she wins – she deserves it. But nothing seems certain now.
The 86th Academy Awards happens 2nd March 2014.
