Hello there, my name is Gus, and I am taking over Admiring Cate Blanchett from now on. I am a very recent Cate fan, so please forgive me if I mislead any information or fact about her. I truly admire her work, and I found out that I really want to take on and help spread the information about her.

Since the gallery had the last update in April, I will try my best to update all the missing album on the gallery, and will also add the post here on the website, so you’ll be noted of every single update I made.

Also, since the website had a few time off, I believe some of the partners decided to remove it from its affiliates list. So, I decided to remove them and will add new ones as the time goes by. You can get in touch with us if you want to apply for our new affiliates section. If you want to reach us, please go trought the same link and just fill out the form.

I will try my best to keep the website updated from now on, and I hope you like this new era of the website.

See you later!

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has today confirmed a number of nominees, presenters and other attendees of this Sunday’s EE British Academy Film Awards at the Royal Albert Hall, London. Cate has been announced as a presenter and we can’t wait for this appearance.

The ceremony will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC One HD at 21.00 on Sunday 10th February.

Annapurna Pictures has moved its Richard Linklater literary adaptation “Where’d You Go, Bernadette,” starring Cate Blanchett back five months from March 22 to an Aug. 9 release.

A rep for Annapurna explained that August has served well as a launching pad for release of female-skewing films such as “Crazy Rich Asians,” “Florence Foster Jenkins” and “Julie and Julia.” Additionally, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” will offer a change of pace following a summer of sequels and action movies.

Blanchett stars in the title role along with Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, Emma Nelson, James Urbaniak, Judy Greer, Troian Bellisario, Zoë Chao and Laurence Fishburne. Linklater co-wrote with Holly Gent, Vincent Palmo Jr., Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter. Producers are Megan Ellison, Nina Jacobson, Bradford Simpson, and Ginger Sledge.

“Where’d You Go, Bernadette” is based upon the 2012 novel by Maria Semple. It follows the architect Bernadette Fox who goes missing just prior to a family vacation to Antarctica. The story is narrated by Bernadette’s 15-year-old daughter, who attempts to track down her reclusive mother.

“Where’d You Go, Bernadette” will open against Lionsgate’s “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” Bleecker Street’s “Brian Banks” and Disney’s “Artemis Fowl.” It’s Linklater’s 20th movie, including last year’s Bryan Cranston-Steve Carell-Laurence Fishburne drama “Last Flag Flying.” He received an Oscar nomination three years ago for “Boyhood.” [Source]

Internationally acclaimed performance artist Izabella Barta is preparing for a major career retrospective in “Documentary Now! Waiting for the Artist,” with Cate Blanchett channeling Marina Abramović.

The first two episodes of the new season will have their premiere during Sundance Film Festival on Sunday January 27, 2019. You can go here to buy tickets and more.

The 2018 Close Encounters series includes the onstage conversation with one of the most intense and refined actresses of contemporary cinema, two-time Oscar® winner Cate Blanchett. Honored by the Academy for her roles in The Aviator by Martin Scorsese and Blue Jasmine by Woody Allen, the Australian actress boasts an exceptional roster of collaborations with directors such as Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Wes Anderson, Ron Howard, David Fincher, Steven Soderbergh and Todd Haynes. After enrolling in the Department of Economics of the University of Melbourne, Cate decided to leave the university to study acting at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts in Sydney and, after graduating, became a member of the Sydney Theatre Company. In 1997, she made her cinematic debut beside Glenn Close in Paradise Road directed by Bruce Beresford. But it was the following year that she was catapulted to the pantheon of the stars, for her performance as the haughty and resolute Queen Elisabeth in Shekhar Kapur’s Elizabeth, the role for which she earned her first Academy Award nomination and went on to win the Golden Globe. From then on, her career soared inexorably on the wings of her performances in very different roles, all played with style and elegance.

Blessed with aristocratic allure and the magnetic appeal of a diva from days gone by, in 2016 the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees appointed her Goodwill Ambassador for her humanitarian commitment.

The encounter will be on October 19, 2018 at 17.30 pm. Tickets will be on sale from October 12th and you can go here to get. [Source]

When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other

‘Go on then: lock the doors and see what happens. Show me how much power you really have.’

This new play breaks through the surface of contemporary debate to explore the messy, often violent nature of desire and the fluid, complicated roles that men and women play.

Using Samuel Richardson’s novel, Pamela, as a provocation, six characters act out a dangerous game of sexual domination and resistance.

The production reunites Martin Crimp (Attempts on her Life, In the Republic of Happiness) and director Katie Mitchell (Waves, Cleansed). Cate Blanchett makes her National Theatre debut alongside Stephen Dillane, who returns to the National Theatre for the first time since The Coast of Utopia in 2002.

Cate Blanchett covers Vanity Fair Italy, on stands the next October 3, 2018. Don’t forget to buy the magazine. Below you can read a part of the interview. Will add the scans as soon as I get these.

Cate Blanchett: «Il futuro che vorrei costruire»

Si dichiara femminista, e sa che «c’è ancora tanto da fare». Ma, dice, non è necessario radere al suolo il passato. È più importante credere nell’inclusione. Di tutte le «minoranze»

Qui un estratto dell’intervista di copertina pubblicata sul numero 39 di «Vanity Fair», in edicola fino al 3 ottobre 2018.

Cate Blanchett si è rotta un dito del piede poco prima di posare per le foto che vedete in queste pagine e di rilasciare l’intervista che state per leggere.
Niente di grave, incerti del mestiere. Il dito se lo è rotto saltando con troppa forza nell’enfasi interpretativa di un episodio di Documentary Now!, una serie ideata dagli stessi produttori dello show comico Saturday Night Live. Cate è stata chiamata a fare la parodia di un’artista-performer stile Marina Abramović.
«Una parodia o un omaggio?», si domanda, sorridendo, la splendida Cate durante questo nostro incontro, in qualità di global ambassador di Giorgio Armani Beauty.
Negli ultimi mesi, sui tappeti rossi – da Cannes, dove era presidente della giuria, a Venezia – è apparsa ancora più splendida e carismatica del solito, come se avesse raggiunto lo zenit dello stato di grazia e consapevolezza, capace di maneggiare alla perfezione, unica della sua specie, i segreti del divismo e del talento, della popolarità di massa e dell’indiscusso rispetto di registi, artisti, colleghi.

Tema del giorno: l’industria del cinema che cambia, le polemiche pro e contro Netflix. Lei come la vede?
«Lo streaming è una novità dirompente che serve ad aprire a un nuovo pubblico e a generare nuove forme di consumo del cinema. Probabilmente era anche una evoluzione inevitabile e necessaria, perché ha messo in discussione un sistema che si stava avvitando su se stesso: stessi film, sequel e prequel, stessi cliché e stesse strategie di marketing. Ma non ha senso dire che il cinema in sala non esiste più, queste esperienze possono coesistere. I festival, per esempio, continuano ad avere un grande valore perché hanno quel sapore di “evento” che inevitabilmente si perde se guardi un film a letto, in pigiama, addentando una pizza. Ma le cose diventano irrilevanti solo quando… diventano irrilevanti. E il cinema non lo è ancora». Keep reading »

The two-time Oscar winner joins fellow honoree Steve McQueen at the British Academy’s annual L.A. event.

Cate Blanchett has already booked in at least one honor this awards season.

Announced Thursday, BAFTA’s L.A. branch is to present Blanchett with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film at this year’s Britannia Awards on October 26.

The two-time Academy Award winner joins fellow honoree Steve McQueen, who is set to receive the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Artistic Excellence in Directing.

Previous recipients of the Stanley Kubrick award include Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Meryl Streep, Robert Downey Jr. and George Clooney.

“With an impressive and extensive repertoire of work on screen and stage, Cate’s award-winning talent is unprecedented, earning her international acclaim and numerous accolades,” said BAFTA Los Angeles chairman Kieran Breen. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate her brilliant work by honoring her with this year’s Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.” [Source]

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi are also scheduled to brief the UN Security Council

UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and actor, Cate Blanchett, will brief the United Nations Security Council on Rohingya issues on August 28, reported UNB.

Her goal is to draw attention to the plight and resilience of Rohingyas she met in Bangladesh on a recent visit, the UK office at the UN and the UN Refugee Agency tweeted on Thursday.

The UN Security Council will hold an open briefing on the situation in Myanmar under the UK presidency on August 28, said a senior official at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

He said UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, are also scheduled to brief the UN Security Council.

During her Bangladesh visit, Oscar-winning actor Blanchett urged Myanmar to create decent conditions in the Rakhine state for the safe return of Rohingyas, saying the solution to the Rohingya crisis lies with Myanmar.

“Ultimately, I think, the key here is to address their statelessness,” she told UNB, mentioning that much more needed to be done to make sure there are decent conditions for the refugees to return safely when they want to.

Blanchett, who was named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador in May 2016, said the conditions right now in Rakhine are clearly not conducive to the safe and voluntary return, or the dignified return, of the refugees who have fled to Bangladesh.

The Myanmar authorities have shown little effort to make any tangible progress to improve conditions in Rakhine state for the safe return of Rohingyas in almost one year into the crisis, though the international community, including the UN, remains actively grappling with the issue, officials said.

There will be further high-level meetings and events during the General Debate and high-level segment of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly in September 2018. [Source]

Two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett will join the 13th Rome Film Fest to participate in a Close Encounter meeting with the audience and discuss her work as an artist and humanitarian.

Blanchett, a seven-time Academy Award nominee, won for her roles in The Aviator (2004) and Blue Jasmine (2013). She has been a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees since 2016.

“It is an extraordinary honor to host a wonderful actress such as Cate Blanchett at the Rome Film Fest,” said artistic director Antonio Mondo. “The versatility, the passion and the intelligence of her performances have made her one of the greatest protagonists in the history of cinema.”

Video artist and director Shirin Neshat also will participate in a Close Encounter at the festival, in collaboration with Videocitta. Neshat, winner of the 1999 Venice Silver Lion for best director (Women Without Men), has established herself as one of the world’s most visionary artists working today.

As previously announced, Martin Scorsese and Isabelle Huppert will receive lifetime achievement awards at the upcoming fest

Other guests include Sigourney Weaver, Thierry Fremeaux, Paolo Virzi and Luca Bigazzi.

The Rome Film Fest is set to run Oct. 18-28. [Source]
