The Weinstein Company has made it official, as if there was really any doubt who is a lead and who is supporting in its November 20 release, and Oscar hopeful, Carol. No sooner had my flight back from the Toronto Film Festival landed at LAX than I received a call from TWC clarifying that it definitely will be campaigning Cate Blanchett for Lead Actress and Rooney Mara for Supporting. Ever since the TIFF debut to rave reviews and strong audience reaction on Saturday night of Blanchett’s other 2015 contender, Truth, there has been speculation that to avoid canceling herself out, the Weinstein Company and Sony Pictures Classics (which is releasing Truth on October 16) might try to avoid a Solomon’s or Sophie’s Choice here and shoehorn one or the other performance from Blanchett into supporting.

It’s certainly been done before, as I pointed out in a Sunday column addressing this very issue. In fact, in order to avoid that kind of situation, TWC campaigned another Kate, as in Winslet, for Supporting Actress for The Reader in 2008, so as not to Truthcollide with her other big role in Paramount’s Revolutionary Road that same year. But as it turns out, it is not wise to tell the Academy performers branch what is a leading role vs. supporting. They don’t always fall in line like lemmings. Winslet, despite that supporting campaign, was nominated for Lead Actress instead for The Reader and eventually won. There was no nomination for Revolutionary Road. And though groups like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association determine which performance goes into lead or support, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences leaves that decision solely to each voting actor.

Cate Blanchett is lots of things we’d like to be: elegant, witty and the owner of a truly remarkable pair of cheekbones. As the face of Armani’s alluring, feminine ‘Si’ scent, she’s wowed us time and time again in chic campaign visuals, so we were pretty excited to get a sneaky peek behind the scenes at how the magic happens.

Armani have shared with us a video, showing us Cate getting ready, being photographed and having plenty of giggles with her co-star. Looks like a fun day at work…

Armani Si is £44 for 30ml and available from September 1st. [Source]

Carol, Laurel, Jules, Therese, Maud. These are just a few of the lead characters in a fall season that is by all accounts a big one for female-driven movies.

“Freeheld,” based on a documentary, stars Julianne Moore as the terminally ill New Jersey police detective Laurel Hester, who becomes an advocate for gay rights when government officials prevent her from assigning her pension benefits to her domestic partner (played by Ellen Page). Based on a Patricia Highsmith novel, “Carol” is a 1950s melodrama with Cate Blanchett as the married title character and Rooney Mara as her lover, Therese, that has already won accolades at Cannes. “Suffragette” tells the little-known story of the militant women’s emancipation movement in England, directed and written by women, with Carey Mulligan as Maud, a foot soldier in the fight. “The Intern,” directed by Nancy Meyers, follows Jules (Anne Hathaway), an Internet entrepreneur struggling to manage her company’s success with the help of an intern (Robert De Niro) who’s a senior citizen.

And there are more — “Brooklyn,” “Truth” and “Sisters,” to name a few. All are garnering attention, some are even the subject of Oscar talk, and yet their very existence is still a rarity in Hollywood.

Cate Blanchett’s latest film Carol, which got a standing ovation at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, will have its Australian premiere as part of this year’s Adelaide Film Festival.

Directed by Todd Haynes and set in Manhattan in the 1950s, it tells of the relationship of wealthy and married socialite Carol (played by Blanchett) and department store assistant Therese Belivet (played by Rooney Mara).

“I think the studios have a kind of repeated amnesia about the fact that people actually want to see films about women and they can be profitable,” Haynes told 891 ABC Adelaide.

Some critics are talking of Oscar hopes based on Blanchett’s role.

“It’s just an incredible performance from Cate. I was there is Cannes to see the world premiere and I am just so delighted that we can bring it here to Adelaide,” festival director Amanda Duthie said.

“We have 10 Australian premieres, including the completely magnificent Carol starring Cate Blanchett, in our feature competition and a whole range also in the documentary competition.”

More than 180 films will screen during the Adelaide Film Festival from October 15 to 25. [Source]

Australian actor Cate Blanchett is to be awarded a BFI Fellowship by the UK’s lead film agency, the British Film Institute, at this year’s London film festival.

The BFI Fellowship – not to be confused with a similarly titled honour given by Bafta (the British Academy of Film and Television Arts) – is a lifetime achievement award given by the BFI board of governors and presented for “outstanding achievement in film and television”. There have been some 80 previous recipients, including Al Pacino, Judi Dench, Mike Leigh and, most recently, Mel Brooks.

Blanchett, who was born and brought up in Melbourne, Australia, shot to international fame in 1997 when she starred opposite Ralph Fiennes in the adaptation of Peter Carey’s Booker-prize winning novel Oscar and Lucinda. She went on to win a string of awards, including Oscars for best supporting actress (The Aviator in 2004) and best actress (Blue Jasmine in 2013). She also played the elf queen Galadriel in all six Tolkien films directed by Peter Jackson. Aside from film work, Blanchett has taken on numerous theatre roles, and spent five years as co-CEO and artistic director of Sydney Theatre Company with her husband, playwright Andrew Upton.

Two of Blanchett’s most recent films – Carol, a romance adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Price of Salt (which got a five-star review from Peter Bradshaw), and Truth, about American TV journalist Mary Mapes – will screen at the London film festival, where Blanchett is due to receive her award on 17 October.

Cate Blanchett is attached to star in an authorized biopic of Hollywood legend Lucille Ball that Aaron Sorkin is set to write for Escape Artists, TheWrap has learned.

The film will chronicle Ball’s 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz, with whom she starred on the classic TV sitcom “I Love Lucy.” Ball had two children with Arnaz before they divorced in 1960. She married Gary Morton the following year.

Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. will produce with Escape Artists, whose executive Jenna Block will oversee development of the project on behalf of the Sony-based company.

A representative for Blanchett declined to comment, while a representative for Sorkin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Blanchett won the first of two Academy Awards for playing another Hollywood icon, Katharine Hepburn, in Martin Scorsese‘s “The Aviator.” She’s gearing up for another Oscar run thanks to her acclaimed performance in Todd Haynes‘ lesbian romance “Carol.” Blanchett also stars opposite Robert Redford in the Toronto-bound drama “Truth” and co-stars in a pair of upcoming Terrence Malick movies.

The Hamptons International Film Festival has tapped James Vanderbilt’s Truth as its opening night film.

The film, which stars Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett, Topher Grace and Elisabeth Moss, will screen Oct. 8 in East Hampton. Based on a true story, Truth centers on news anchor Dan Rather (Redford) during his final days at CBS News when he broadcast a report about how President George W. Bush relied on privilege and family connections to avoid fighting in the Vietnam War.

Sony Pictures Classics will release the film in theaters Oct. 16.

“We had the pleasure of having James Vanderbilt serve as a mentor in our Screenwriters Lab back in 2009, and we’re thrilled to have him back as the director of our Opening Night film,” HIFF artistic director David Nugent said. “He’s made a sharp and insightful film with wonderful performances that makes audiences consider the ever-changing relationship between journalism and politics in today’s media.”

This year’s Narrative Competition feature films include Matt Sobel’s Take Me to the River, Ciro Guerra’s Embrace of the Serpent, Avishai Sivan’s Tikkun, Grimur Hakonarson’s Rams and Diasteme’s French Blood.

Screen Australia says actor will direct television series based on the story of a German-Australian woman who was wrongly detained as an illegal immigrant

Cate Blanchett is to make her first foray behind the camera, developing and directing a new television series, Stateless, based on the life of Cornelia Rau.

Rau, a German-Australian woman and former Qantas air hostess, attracted attention in 2005 after she escaped the controversial Sydney sect known as Kenja only to be held at the Baxter detention centre in South Australia as a suspected illegal immigrant.

As the national debate around immigration and detention continues to swirl in Australia, Blanchett could not have chosen a more topical subject for her debut.

“Stateless will be Cate Blanchett’s first venture into high-end TV,” said Screen Australia who is funding the script’s development by writer Elise McCredie.

“Inspired by the incredible true story of Cornelia Rau, Stateless is a powerful and timely series about identity, belonging and the extraordinary lengths people will go to find their place in the world,” the funding body said.

CATE Blanchett makes no bones about it. Returning to a theatre rehearsal room when you have a young baby is hard.

She and husband Andrew Upton adopted baby Edith from the US earlier this year and have said that they and their three sons are “besotted”.

But as everyone knows, caring for a baby is tiring.

“I feel a bit sleep-deprived,” admits Blanchett.

“But you have to work with whatever state you’re in and turn it in to a positive. Sometimes, it can be good to be a bit tired in a rehearsal room because your defences are down, your guard is down.”

Blanchett is about to co-star with Richard Roxburgh in The Present, adapted by Upton from Anton Chekhov’s sprawling first play Platonov, and playing at the Roslyn Packer Theatre from August 4.

Blanchett and Roxburgh also performed together in Upton’s 2010 adaptation of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, wowing audiences and critics alike in Sydney, Washington and New York.

As you’d expect, their reunion has made The Present one of the hottest tickets in the Sydney Theatre Company’s 2015 season.
