Congratulations to Cate, Galadriel, Blanchett for her Golden Globe win!
Cate Blanchett, (Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit), has taken home the Golden Globe for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama”
Nominated for her role in Blue Jasmine, Blanchett was up against such heavy weights as Sandra Bullock, Judi Dench, Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet. The win makes Blanchett the “front runner” for the Oscar.
Blue Jasmine Storyline:
“Jasmine French used to be on the top of the heap as a New York socialite, but now is returning to her estranged sister in San Francisco utterly ruined. As Jasmine struggles with her haunting memories of a privileged past bearing dark realities she ignored, she tries to recover in her present. Unfortunately, it all proves a losing battle as Jasmine’s narcissistic hangups and their consequences begin to overwhelm her. In doing so, her old pretensions and new deceits begin to foul up everyone’s lives, especially her own.”-IMDB
According to Entertainment Weekly,In her acceptance speech: Blanchett kicked things off by mentioning the “few vodkas” she had “under her belt,” before thanking director Woody Allen and calling the Golden Globe awards the “heavy things that make your biceps look great.” Seconds later, when the wrap-it-up music started playing, Blanchett pondered, “Can people at home hear this music?”
