    Eight Great Quotes from Cate Blanchett at the Santa Barbara Film Festival (CLIPS)

    "Blue Jasmine" hit theaters back in July 2013 which, by this awards-packed winter 2014, feels like ages ago. Writer-director Woody Allen ostensibly penned the title role of Jasmine French with Cate Blanchett in mind. "Well that's something I'd like to believe is true," the ever-bashful Blanchett tol...

    Oscars: The Best Underrated Performances Of The 2014 Actor & Actress Nominees

    The trouble with awards season, especially when it comes to actors who often attract nominations, is that there's a risk that it delegitimizes their work if it doesn't get recognized.

    In George Clooney's "male-washed" retelling of history, women are barely worth a mention. Blanchett is a token presence, and because she's the sole woman in this army of art lovers, she comes to represent the Exceptional Woman who is different from the rest of womankind -- the woman who's better tha...

We see close-ups of a work of art -- van Eyck's oversized Ghent Altarpiece—hear banging, then see priests crate up the individual panels of the painting, put them in a truck in the dark of night and send it off f...

Russell's "American Hustle" (and the way that that phrase rhymes alone makes us glad it's a Best Picture nominee) had the momentum going into the Oscar nominations last week, and had even more after it: ten nominations, including Best Pi...
