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]

Spoof series “Documentary Now!” is hosted by an Oscar-winner (Helen Mirren), with another appearing in last seasons’s two-part finale (Faye Dunaway), and a third now joining the fold. Cate Blanchett will star in one of next year’s seven episodes — “Waiting for the Artist” — IFC announced Wednesday. The installment will parody 2012 Berlin International Film Festival audience award winner, “Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present.”

That film shares its name with the Serbian performance artist’s MoMA retrospective, in which she memorably locked eyes with each individual attendee, including Jay-Z (the encounter made its way into his “Picasso Baby” video). According to the IFC synopsis, Blanchett’s counterpart, Izabella Barta, “feels pressured to put on the show of her life” while rekindling her courtship with “an infamous provocateur of the art world,” Dimo Van Omen, played by Fred Armisen. “Waiting for the Artist” was filmed in Budapest this summer, and will debut around the time Blanchett’s upcoming Annapurna release, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” bows in theaters (March 22).

“Cate’s portrayal of an art-world superstar has her doing it all: performance art, comedy, and even her own stunts,” said acting IFC General Manager Blake Callaway. Blanchett, the former co-artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company, is acquainted with Abramovic in real life: Abramovic was a guest at a 2013 Sony Pictures Classics luncheon celebrating the actress and the film that garnered her second Academy Award, “Blue Jasmine.”

“Documentary Now!” was created by Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, and Rhys Thomas, who has directed every episode with Alex Buono. All are executive producers on the show, as is “Saturday Night Live” mastermind Lorne Michaels, and “Portlandia” veteran Andrew Singer. John Mulaney is a consulting producer. The first two seasons each earned Outstanding Variety Sketch Series Emmy nominations. A new episode has not aired since October 2016.

Actor is cast opposite Stephen Dillane in production to be directed by Katie Mitchell

Cate Blanchett is to return to the UK stage for the first time in seven years when she makes her debut at the National Theatre in a new play by Martin Crimp.

It was announced on Wednesday that the Australian actor, who lives with her family in East Sussex, has been cast with Stephen Dillane in a production to be directed by Katie Mitchell.

Blanchett is an experienced stage actor and with her husband, Andrew Upton, was in charge of the Sydney Theatre Company from 2008-2013.

But the actor has been best known in recent years for her movie roles, including Blue Jasmine, Carol, the Hobbit films and Ocean’s 8. Her last UK stage appearance was at the Barbican in London in 2012 in Botho Strauss’s Big and Small.

Crimp’s play is called When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other – Twelve Variations on Samuel Richardson’s Pamela. Richardson’s Pamela, a kind of 18th-century Fifty Shades of Grey, is an epistolary novel about a young maid terrorised and imprisoned by a libertine nobleman. It caused a sensation after it was published in 1740 with its theme of love and marriage across the social divide.

The National Theatre said Crimp was using Pamela as a provocation with five characters acting out “a dangerous game of sexual domination and resistance”.

It said the play would break 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”.

The actress has become the brand’s first global beauty ambassador.

Cate Blanchett’s role at Giorgio Armani Beauty has been expanded, and she’s been named the brand’s first global beauty ambassador. The Academy Award-winning actress, who has been the face of the brand’s Sì fragrance franchise since 2013, is now representing all of the label’s beauty categories — including also makeup and skin care.

Giorgio Armani described Blanchett as the brand’s quintessential woman. “Luminous and sophisticated, her natural elegance and distinguished beauty are striking,” said the designer in a statement. “I am pleased to deepen our longstanding relationship.”

The actress has many movies set for 2018, including “Ocean’s 8,” “Where’d You Go, Bernadette,” “The House With a Clock in Its Walls” and “Mowgli.” She served as the president of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival this year. [Source]

Cate Blanchett, Joel Edgerton and Chris Hemsworth are among more than 200 Australian actors, directors, screenwriters, producers and other film and TV talent who have signed an open letter to the Oz government on behalf of the #MakeItAustralian campaign. In the face of “a deluge of overseas content,” the movement calls on federal parliamentarians to protect the local biz by committing to a diversity of quality Australian content for Australian and international audiences.

The campaign is asking elected officials to evolve rules so that new players like Netflix and YouTube have obligations to create original local programs. This comes as, the group says, major supporters of Australian stories such as Screen Australia and the ABC have seen funding cut over the years.

“Our ability to keep telling Australian stories on screen is at risk, our voices in danger of being drowned out by a deluge of overseas content,” the group writes. “And if our nation’s stories aren’t told, they die. And when they die, future generations won’t know who we are and what makes us us.”

The group also points to tax incentives that encourage production in Australia, saying they need to be competitive. This has long been a source of contention. The so-called production offset has been stuck at 16.5% and the industry has lobbied the government ahead of this year’s budget (due to be announced in May) to raise it to 30% to attract overseas filmmakers. The offset has occasionally been increased on a one-off basis for a major U.S. production. Most recently, Queensland agreed to top it up for Paramount’s live-action Dora The Explorer movie.

Big films to shoot Down Under in recent years include Alien: Covenant, Kong: Skull Island, Thor: Ragnarok, and Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Baz Bamigboye of The Daily Mail has reported that Academy Award winning actor, Cate Blanchett, has departed an upcoming stage adaptation of the classic film All About Eve.

According to Baz, Blanchett was forced to drop the project due to a scheduling conflict. Star Gillian Anderson is currently in talks to join the cast in the iconic role of Margot Channing.

The adaptation, which will be directed by Tony Award winner, Ivo van Hove is expected to arrive on the West End in early 2019. The play will be produced by Sonia Friedman Productions and Fox Stage Productions.

Mankiewicz, based on the short story “The Wisdom of Eve,” by Mary Orr, and stars Bette Davis as Margo Channing, the prominent yet aging Broadway star. Anne Baxter plays Eve Harrington, a willingly helpful young fan who insinuates herself into Channing’s life, threatening Channing’s career and personal relationships. All About Eve was nominated for 14 Academy Awardsâ and won 6, including Best Picture.

Ivo Van Hove won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Direction of a Play for ARTHUR MILLER’S A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE. As General Director of Holland’s leading theatre company Toneelgroep Amsterdam, Ivo Van Hove has staged many internationally acclaimed productions, including, in New York: Alice in Bed, More Stately Mansions (Obie Award), A Streetcar Named Desire, Hedda Gabler(Obie), The Misanthrope, The Little Foxes, and Scenes From a Marriage, all at the New York Theatre Workshop; Roman Tragedies, Cries and Whispers, Opening Night, Angels in America, and Antigone at BAM; and Teorema at the Lincoln Center Festival.

She will be on a four day tour to visit these camps in Cox’s Bazar

Multiple Academy award winning Australian actor and UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR, Goodwill Ambassador Cate Blanchett is coming to Bangladesh to visit the Rohingya refugee camps. She will be on a four day tour to visit these camps in Cox’s Bazar.

Previously, other UNHCR ambassadors including “Bond Girl” Michelle Yeoh and famous Japanese rock singer Miyavi visited the Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar.

Moreover, Hollywood celebrity and UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie called out everyone to go and visit the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh back in November 2017. She called out to Nato at their conference at Brussels in February: “I‘m very concerned about the Rohingya, I‘m very angry at the response … I‘m very concerned about the stories of the 10-year old girls being raped.”

“We should all hang our head on how little we have been able to do,” she added.

According to the UNHCR, almost 700,000 Rohingya refugees entered Bangladeshi soil since August 25, 2017. Many sources claim that about three thousand of them were killed at their homeland Myanmar. [Source]

Cate Blanchett, a two-time Oscar-winning actor who is prominent in a Hollywood campaign to tackle sexual harassment in the workplace, will head the jury at this year’s Cannes film festival, organisers said on Thursday.

Blanchett was one of 300 influential women in Hollywood who launched the Time’s Up initiative this week, in response to a string of sexual assault accusations against prominent men in the film industry. The Australian actor will become the 12th woman to lead the prestigious panel at Cannes, which kicks off on 8 May.

“We’re very pleased to welcome a rare and unique artist with talent and conviction,” Cannes president Pierre Lescure and delegate general Thierry Fremaux said in a joint statement.

“Our conversations this autumn convince us she will be a committed president, and a passionate and generous spectator.”

The choice of Blanchett, who was named best actress at the 2014 Academy Awards for her role in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, will be seen as politically charged after a year in which the sexual harassment scandal surrounding Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein sparked a deluge of allegations against powerful men in entertainment, politics and the media.

Shortly after the Harvey Weinstein story broke in October, she lent her public support to his accusers; he now faces claims of a string of sexual assaults and rapes from more than one hundred accusers. Weinstein has denied some of the accusations.
