Cate Blanchett Wins Best Actress, Drama at the 2014 Golden Globes for ‘Blue Jasmine’
Cate Blanchett has just won the award for Best Actress, Drama at the 2014 Golden Globes, announced during the live awards ceremony on Sunday, January 12, hosted for the second time in a row by comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
Leonardo DiCaprio, who previously in the night won the Best Actor, Comedy Golden Globe for ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ came out to present the award to Blanchett. The other nominees for Best Actress, Drama included Sandra Bullock for ‘Gravity,’ Judi Dench for ‘Philomena,’ Emma Thompson for ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ and Kate Winslet for ‘Labor Day.’
Directed by Woody Allen, ‘Blue Jasmine’ sees Blanchett as a rich Manhattan socialite who loses all her money and is forced to live with her sister. Also featured in the film are Sally Hawkins, Alec Baldwin, Bobby Cannavale and Peter Sarsgard, though Blanchett’s performance, especially as her character speaks to herself out loud in order to rehearse the lies to tell those around her and desperately tries to retain the last shreds of her old image, is electric.
