Best Actress at the 2014 Oscars went to Cate Blanchett for her role in 'Blue Jasmine' - a win many saw coming as the actress pretty much swept all the awards leading up to this point. But, whether you saw it coming or not, it was a win that was very much deserved.
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.
It should be no surprise that Woody Allen, survivor of a protracted tabloid scandal, should make 'Blue Jasmine.' It's a story of what happens after the headlines, about the emotional aftershocks of big, juicy news and how they affect unexpected people in unexpected ways. This isn't a very funny movie, but its observational instincts are so bright that the scenes evoke laughter, even when the story is actually rather sad. It's one of Allen's best films in years and a silver-plated gift to Cate Blanchett who takes the character and runs with it.
