iW NEWS | Blanchett to be Honored in Santa Barbara

Cate Blanchett will be honored with the Modern Master Award early next year at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The presentation will be a signature event during the 23rd Annual Santa Barbara fest, set for January 24 - February 3 in California. Blanchett is at the center of two upcoming releases, Todd Haynes' "I'm Not There" and Shekhar Kapur's "Elizabeth: The Golden Age." "Cate Blanchett is the most consummate actor," commented festival head Roger Durling, in a statement, "and portraying Queen Elizabeth and Bob Dylan in the same year - and so indelibly - is pure alchemy. We're so eager to honor her in the upcoming festival." [Eugene Hernandez]
