In a conversation with The Envelope, Todd Haynes, director of the beautiful, spellbinding romance “Carol,” mentioned his three favorite scenes shared by his Oscar-nominated actresses Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. Naturally, we had to ask the women about them too. Their reactions to Haynes’ choices — along with his own comments — provide a glimpse into the deliberate decisions and considerable challenges that went into making this celebrated film.

Scene 1: Carol drives Therese to her New Jersey home for the first time. In the novel, Patricia Highsmith writes: “They roared into the Lincoln Tunnel. A wild, inexplicable excitement mounted in Therese as she stared through the windshield. She wished the tunnel might cave in and kill them both, that their bodies might be dragged out together.”

Haynes: I read that and I thought, “Yes! That is … love!” It’s what you do in your mind when you fall in love. You’re so close to those moments that a trifle will set off a fantasy of suicide or some dramatic idea of dying with your loved one, just so you’re witnessed together for posterity. [Laughs]

It’s also a scene that created real practical problems shooting in Cincinnati because the length of the tunnel we used is about 200 yards. So we had to keep scheduling a drive through this tunnel over and over and over again. The tunnel was so short that daylight would start coming through almost immediately. So we shot it at like 4 in the morning after an already incredibly long day, using a police escort that took about 45 minutes just to do a circle and go back around again for what’s literally 30 seconds of shooting.

Cate Blanchett will receive the Lacoste Spotlight Award at the 18th Costume Designers Guild Awards on Feb. 23 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The guild said the award honors an actor whose talent and career personify an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design.

“Blanchett is being honored for her unparalleled talent as much as for her status within the costume design community,” the guild said. “Her appreciation for the artistry of costume design and her collaboration with the Costume Designers has made her an icon both on and off the screen.”

Blanchett won an Academy Award for best actress for “Blue Jasmine” and for best supporting actress for “The Aviator.” She was nominated for four other Oscars for “Elizabeth,” “Elizabeth: The Golden Age,” “Notes on a Scandal” and “I’m Not There.” Her credits include “Cinderella,” “Veroica Guerin,” “Bandits,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” “The Lord of the Rings Trilogy” and “The Hobbit Trilogy.”

She stars alongside Rooney Mara in “Carol,” directed by Todd Haynes, and has been nominated for a Golden Globes best actress award. She starred as Mary Mapes in “Truth” opposite Robert Redford and will appear soon in Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups.” [Source]

The actress will receive Australia’s highest screen award.

Cate Blanchett will be awarded the ACCTA Longford Lyell Award, Australia’s highest screen award, on Wednesday evening in Sydney. The award has been presented since 1968, honouring an individual who has made a “truly outstanding contribution to the enrichment of Australia’s screen environment and culture.” As one of Australia’s most successful film exports, it’s hard to deny the two-time Oscar-winner fits the bill.

“When I look at the outstanding men and women who have received this prestigious award before me, I am truly honoured to be considered among venerable practitioners and performers; creative spirits who have had a strong and lasting influence, not only on my work, but on what I thought creatively possible in this country,” Blanchett said of the honour via press release.

Currently, Blanchett stars on the December 2015 issue of Vogue Australia, which celebrates the end of her and husband Andrew Upton’s tenure at the Sydney Theatre Company in anticipation of their permanent move overseas. [Source]

After journeying to Middle-earth together for the “Lord of the Rings” movies, Cate Blanchett and Ian McKellen are playing more grounded roles in this year’s films. In “Mr. Holmes,” McKellen stars as the famous detective in old age. Blanchett pulls double duty in “Carol,” as a 1950s housewife who falls for a younger woman; and in “Truth,” in which she plays embattled “60 Minutes” producer Mary Mapes.

Ian McKellen: “Carol” is a love story, isn’t it?

Cate Blanchett: I don’t know if you’ve read “The Price of Salt.” It was Patricia Highsmith’s first novel. She writes about the really dark recesses of the human mind, which is what I love about her. And all these unpalatable thoughts and obsessions that we all have, but we never give voice to, or admit to anybody. And Phyllis Nagy wrote the most beautiful screenplay.

McKellen: And you can tell it’s a Todd Haynes movie right from the beginning.

Blanchett: I did another film called “Truth.” It’s about this producer, Mary Mapes, and Dan Rather, who was the anchorman for CBS. Mary produced this story about (George W.) Bush’s service in the Air National Guard. Subsequently, the story was picked apart, Dan stepped down as anchor, and Mary lost her job.

McKellen: Did you meet her?

Blanchett: I did.

McKellen: Are you anything like her? Is she anything like you?

Blanchett: I wish I had the same level of tenacity. She’s probably the only person who went into a war zone with a curling iron. She’s covered so many wars. But she’s sort of an amazing series of contradictions, incredibly passionate, and has a very strong moral core.

Mark your calendar: on Dec. 27 on PBS Socal, Variety’s “Actors on Actors” will feature a fun and smart conversation between two of the world’s finest actors—Sir Ian McKellen and Cate Blanchett. Variety sets them up this way:

After journeying to Middle-earth together for the “Lord of the Rings” movies, Cate Blanchett and Ian McKellen are playing more grounded roles in this year’s films. In “Mr. Holmes,” McKellen stars as the famous detective in old age. Blanchett pulls double duty in “Carol,” as a 1950s housewife who falls for a younger woman; and in “Truth,” in which she plays embattled “60 Minutes” producer Mary Mapes.

McKellen: (When) I did “Richard III,” which I had done a lot. When we got to do it (as a film), it was bliss, because I knew the character backwards. And all I had to think about was, “How can I do it for the camera?” I just wish we could rehearse films, don’t you?

Blanchett: I know. I did a film with Steven Soderbergh called “The Good German,” which about two and a half people saw. But they had been filming for two weeks, and I literally arrived the day before, and walked onto set and sort of had to play this German woman. And we just did one take. And I said, “Don’t you ever rehearse?” And he said, “No, I just have dinner parties so that people can get to know one another.” Because oftentimes you walk on set and then suddenly you’re in bed with someone who you’ve never met before.

Cate Blanchett stars in German artist Julian Rosefeldt’s upcoming exhibition at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).

In Rosefeldt’s new work, which sees its world premiere on December 9 at the ACMI, Blanchett takes on the guise of a homeless man, a newsreader, school teacher, factory worker, ballet dancer, and rock chick, among other roles. The Academy Award winner is no stranger to adopting different characters in her prolific Hollywood career, and at times she appears almost unrecognizable.

As far as move star art efforts go, we’d say this one is pretty good. Blanchett is certainly more convincing than James Franco was in his ill-conceived recreation of Cindy Sherman’s “Untitled Film Stills” series, although the piece is no Shia LaBeouf movie marathon.

Titled Manifesto, the 13-channel work casts Blanchett in different roles to recite 13 artist manifestos, from the writings of Futurists and Dadaists, to Situationists and Dogma 95, as well as individuals such as Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Kazimir Malevich, André Breton, Elaine Sturtevant, and Sol LeWitt, among other artists, architects, dancers, and filmmakers.

With its simultaneous look at manifestos comprised throughout the 20th century, the work attempt to “question the role of the artist in society today.”

Rosenfeldt explains in an interview, “I started to play with the texts and to edit, combine and rearrange them into new texts that could be spoken and performed […] I would take a sentence by one artist and interrupt it with the words of another one.”

Cate Blanchett insists she is not the embodiment of perfection. We beg to differ.

In the fourth gallery of “Picasso Sculpture,” a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, Cate Blanchett stopped in front of an elegant, elongated woman assembled from wood and wire that looked like her. It was early October, and Blanchett had come to Manhattan from her home in Sydney to attend the New York Film Festival premiere of Carol, a love story between two women set in the 1950s (in theaters November 20). Blanchett, who was nursing a sore throat from too many flights and events, wore loose black slacks, a white shirt, flat shoes, a flower-print blazer, and pink aviator glasses. Her blonde hair was still damp from a shower, and she wasn’t wearing any makeup. She looked, as she invariably does, effortlessly beautiful. Unlike most actresses, her clothes had not been chosen by a stylist; they were a manifestation of her personality and current mood.

“I love these women,” Blanchett said enthusiastically of the sculpture and its four companions. “They remind me of Giacometti.” She launched into a story about male artists and their obsessions. “I read about this artist who left his girlfriend for four years. He wanted to make art away from any distractions, but he came home with four matchboxes filled with dust. He was so obsessed with her and with art that he ended up creating nothing. Every time I start a project—and I certainly felt this way with Carol—I have to embrace the fear that it might be a disaster. I like that feeling of consequence.” Blanchett gestured around the gallery at the variety of bodies and faces, all of them female. “Like being with these sculptures, making films is a little like existing in a dreamscape. You only reenter consciousness when the shooting is over.”

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.
