Can this woman get any more serious in her roles?
What an actress! I just last week saw Elizabeth (I know, it's been out a while.) and was quite impressed. Ms. Blanchett really becomes her character with persuasion in this well made drama. I can see why she got an Oscar nomination for the role. I would recommend this movie for anyone who appreciates quality acting and history.
She is also well known for her portrayals of the elf queen Galadriel in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Katharine Hepburn in Martin Scorsese's The Aviator, a role which brought her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
don't know who she is
What is so great about her?
mesmerising and interesting.
Pretty good actress
She is ok for a dingo-loving Australian. I do recollect that she played Galadriel in the LOTR trilogy.
She's good enough to play Hepburn, Dylan, and Queen Elizabeth 1. Why the hell is Cate Blanchett not in the top 20?
She's good enough to play Hepburn and Dylan. What else needs to be said?
One of the best actresses in Hollywood. She can really shape herself for any role, and can even play ugly!
Having seen a few more recent films starring Cate Blanchett, I have to say that I don't think she's as bland as I first thought she was. What she lacks in physical beauty she makes up for it with her classic looks and as an actress who takes her work very seriously, resulting in many memorable performances so far. There's a couple of films where I felt she was miscast but other than that she's proved she can very versatile when given the right part.
2-Bad. Umm, does she ever smile?
Wonderful performance in "Elizabeth", in the hands of a lesser actress the movie would've been called "Shakespeare In Love"... Talented actress.
Beauty and very versatile. I love her dearly and would marry her yesterday if I could. Drama, horror, humor and just about anything else she accels at them all. I liked her in these movies to name a few; Lord of The Rings, Little Fish, The Missing, The Gift, Bandits and Paradise Road to name a few. Just great and classy.
Terrific in "Elizabeth". . .solid, talented actress. . .
Cate deserves much praise for her outstanding performance in Lord of the Rings. She portrayed Galadriel perfectly.
Surprisingly good actress. Tends to bring a certain realness to her characters.
Wonderful actress. She looks a very good person and a great mother.
She is the best actress, every role sghe plays is so convincing, to a pyschic to a hooker to a queen. she is fantastic !
She was terrific in Elizabeth and The Avaitor. Highly talented...my favourite actress!
Cate Blanchett is truly amazing. If you need proof, please see her work in Elizabeth and The Avaitor (among others). You'll be impressed. Impecable performances.
She is one of my favorite actresses. Highly talented with the uncanny ability to change her appearance to resemble the character she is portraying. I have watched the movie Elizabeth several times and never tire of it. In the movie The Gift where she plays a clairvoyant, she is mesmerizing to watch.
good actress. wise enough to play many different types of roles and is very good in them. Liked her in the Missing. heard she was terrific in Elizabeth. good at trying different accents. quite a versatile actress.
HOT! I'd pay her 5 grand a day if she could come to my place and strip for me.
Outstanding actress and a genuine, down-to-earth person. A breath of fresh air.
awsome actress, great in the missing.
Not a bad actress, but I can't remember being driven by any of her roles.
not as much energy
My favourite actress. I've loved her in every movie I've seen her in.
She was amazing in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. She was Galadriel, someone with few lines, but she with her acting, the character played a major role in the films. I don't think the role could have been played any better.
Superior to Kidman. A shame she lost out on an oscar for Elizabeth, especially to that snivelling heap Paltrow.
I love this actress! She is not a classic beauty, but her face draws you in, and her talent overwhelms! Elizabeth is one of my all time favorite movies!
Seems to be amanging her career well. Takes chances on different roles. Quite versatile and well rounded. When all is said and done might have put together an excellent legacy. Gets thumbs up from me for taking cnances.
This is one seriously talented actress who doesn't do the annoying thing of appearing in every single last magazine article and front cover making me want to take her even more serious as a REAL actress. She not only seems passionate about what she does, but shes also down-to-earth, by actually taking a bus and walking around like a normal person without a ridiculous entourage of 100 people. I think one or two Hollywood personalities need to take a leaf out of her book.
Graceful and one of the current best actresses, she should won an Oscar for her role in Elizabeth without question. She has amazing versatility and brings this certain elegance and poise to every role. She's like old Hollywood.
I think she may prove to be the Meryl Streep of her generation. One of the current best.
Amazing talent, nothing really to add after all the other kudos given, except to say that she is what I think of as a true actress, a craftswomen who knows her stuff, and that it is not about standing up with a ton of product in your hair and your bits hanging out looking uberglam all the time, or playing cute and funning but about making a character real and quirky. I loved her in Elizabeth and the Gift - she has one of those faces you just cannot take your eyes off. Go Aussie chick!
The most convincing actress alive!! I always thought she was the best, until I saw her in Heaven. Now I KNOW she is the best!
I adore Cate Blanchett! I think she is very much UNDER-rated! She was nothing less than amazing in "Elizabeth."
Cate is simply amazing. she is incredibly talented and yet modest. she can play practically any role, and do any accent, all without taking her clothes off or doing any stupid sex scenes. she is one of the best actresses around today. she will definitely win an oscar, and soon.
