50 Appropriate Ways to Celebrate Cate Blanchett on Her Birthday

by Nathaniel R

Blanchett last week at a Louis Vitton fashion showFuture screen giant and supreme actress Cate Blanchett was born in Ivanhoe Australia a half century ago on this very day. Happy 50th birthday, goddess!

Last year at this time we were enjoying the two time Oscar winner in Cannes every day as she led the most stylish jury ever assembled but this year in May we have no Cate Blanchett to enjoy! It's a weird lull in Blanchett-mania so perhaps she's celebrating her birthday somewhere private today? Or maybe she's in Cannes again? We'll see.

Her next picture, Richard Linklater's Where'd You Go Bernadette arrives in theaters in August but until that time, let's celebrate all the Blanchettian goodness we can. She's given us so much over the years, with her sharp celebrity wit, fashion savvy, and (above all else) her inspired screen performances. So herewith...

Scarlett's Black Widow Dough and 2018's Highest Paid Actresses

I always find Forbes annual list of highest paid actresses suspect because when you dig into it you realize the huge sums aren't necessarily for acting but for being spokespersons for various products or fashion houses. Of course that requires the celebrity that comes from acting hence the fusion of commerce and art. With some mainstays of the list, like Jennifer Aniston who is on it every year, the money is largely for commercials with the films being commercials for her celebrity to keep the commercial endorsement business going. With others the money is largely the frequent hit films (Melissa McCarthy). Franchises definitely help: Cate Blanchett and Scarlett Johansson both made Marvel money this past year, Angelina Jolie's big number is her upfront pay for Maleficent 2, and Gal Gadot's is her sudden cash-in on her new celebrity from helping to make Wonder Woman such a massive global hit in 2017. 

The 2018 list goes like so...

  1. Scarlett Johansson $40.5 million
  2. Angelina Jolie $28 million
  3. Jennifer Aniston $19.5 million
  4. Jennifer Lawrence $18 million
  5. Reese Witherspoon $16.5 million
  6. Mila Kunis $16 million
  7. Julia Roberts $13 million
  8. Cate Blanchett $12.5 million
  9. Melissa McCarthy $12 million
  10. Gal Gadot $10 million (first time on the list)

On the list last year but didn't manage it this time: Emma Watson, Emma Stone, Amy Adams, and Charlize Theron.

If you controlled the world which 10 actresses would be showered with money for 2018?

Cate Blanchett to play Marina Abramovic.... sort of

by Murtada

Do you watch Documentary Now? It’s a parody of documentaries on the IFC TV channel. It's also very funny and note perfect. At least according to several friends who chimed in when I asked the question about it on twitter. The show's stars Fred Armisen and Bill Hader (who are also the executive producers) and it’s hosted by Dame Helen Mirren. Now they’ve got another Oscar-winning actress who has been a British royal onscreen to guest star in an upcoming episode: Cate Blanchett.
