I was a big fan of Cate Blanchett before her recent Oscar win; I mean she’s gorgeous, Australian and looks like she’s one classy lady – what’s not to like?! But after seeing her in Blue Jasmine, (my gawd!, what a performance, if you haven’t seen it WATCH IT TODAY) I was in love.
She is one of only six actresses to win Oscars in both the leading and supporting acting categories, and the only Australian to win two acting Oscars (after being nominated six times that is! Yowza, my little acting school heart jumped with joy when I heard this!) As if that isn’t cool enough, she’s also the face of SK-II skincare and Giorgio Armani AND she’s a pretty amazing ambassador for climate change in Australia. Fierce much?!
This Sunday I raise my vegemite toast to Cate Blanchett, keeping us Aussies proud in Tinsel Town since 1997!
