Cate blanchett doesn’t feel the os­car is guar­an­teed.

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MOVIES - By Brett John­son pet that they were ob­sessed with the Os­car talk. the aus­tralian ac­tress was in Santa Bar­bara, Cal­i­for­nia in the United States to pick up the Out­stand­ing Per­former of the Year award at the Santa Bar­bara In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val for her

Cate Blanchett ( ... heavy Os­cars favourite?

the pun­dits have prac­ti­cally handed her the Best ac­tress Os­car for her sear­ing per­for­mance as a woman in the throes of a break­down in Woody allen’s Blue Jas­mine, but Blanchett is play­ing it cau­tious.

“Oh no, I don’t think so,” Blanchett told The Star when asked if she thought it was a fore­gone con­clu­sion.

She in­sisted it was a horse race and later told the me­dia along the car- lay­ers of her char­ac­ter’s slow de­scent into an emo­tional break­down, not­ing that she was “on a cock­tail of drugs and al­co­hol, mon­u­men­tally delu­sional and weav­ing a fab­ric of lies.”

It was a juicy role. as for work­ing with the leg­endary allen, Blanchett said: “It was great. He re­ally stands back. He doesn’t talk much to the ac­tors. He wants the in­ter­ac­tion to come from them.”

as for what her three chil­dren will be do­ing when Os­car night rolls around on March 2, Blanchett smiled and said, “Hope­fully, they’ll all be in bed.”

If she wins, it’ll be her sec­ond Os­car out of six nom­i­na­tions. She pre­vi­ously won for her por­trayal of Katharine Hep­burn in the 2004 film The Avi­a­tor. — Ven­tura County Star/McClatchy-tri­bune In­for­ma­tion Ser­vices
