  • The Glorious Gaze Of Beautiful Cate Blanchett Reasserts Faith in Being A Mom.

    05/13/2023 10:21:08 PM PDT · by Ozguy1945 · 27 replies ^ | 14th May, 2023. Mother's Day In Australia | Ozguy1945
    I believe we must not forget that: "Men, women and children need to live with love; this is an indispensable foundation of human society." Today, the 14th of May, is now Mother’s Day in Australia and the 54th birthday of mother-of-four, and dual Oscar winning Australian born actress Cate Blanchett. Here are some of her thoughts on being a mum: “Children are spirited, passionate, political, demanding. They are also heartbreaking. They constantly extend parents and so parents are constantly confronted with their failures, don’t you think? I’d rather presently live life this way than not.” “My husband and I worry...

    Michelle Yeoh may have violated the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' "References to Other Nominees" rule after posting Vogue article about fellow Best Actress nominee and two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett. SNIP "Detractors would say that Blanchett’s is the stronger performance — the acting veteran is, indisputably, incredible as the prolific conductor Lydia Tár — but it should be noted that she already has two Oscars,” read the article. “Meanwhile, for Yeoh, an Oscar would be life-changing: Her name would forever be preceded by the phrase ‘Academy Award winner,’ and it should result in her getting meatier parts,...
  • ‘Pinocchio’ Star Cate Blanchett: Elon Musk Twitter Takeover Is ‘Very, Very Dangerous’

    Cate Blanchett is the latest left-wing Hollywood star to sound the alarm on Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, calling the billionaire free-speech advocate’s ownership of the social media platform “very, very dangerous.” The two-time Oscar-winning actress — who’s set to appear in the Netflix-produced animated film Pinocchio — issued her ominous prognostication prior to receiving a career award from Lincoln Center in New York on Monday. “It’s dangerous,” Blanchett told Variety when asked about Musk’s Twitter takeover. “That’s all I have to say, it’s very, very dangerous.” It remains unclear why Blanchett believes Musk’s ownership of Twitter is “dangerous.” Musk...
  • Four Years After Her Passing, Feminists Are Still Losing to Phyllis Schlafly

    'Mrs. America' tries to paint Phyllis Schlafly as cold and unforgiving, but the conservative icon my grandmother and I knew was nothing of the sort. My grandmother was in a Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter with Phyllis Schlafly from 1965 to 1990. A few years before she died, I had the privilege to intern for Mrs. Schlafly. So, during quarantine, as we watched the FX series “Mrs. America” together, we became filled with growing frustration and disgust at seeing the woman we had known misrepresented and defamed. What is most striking about “Mrs. America,” however, is how little it...

    Just as has happened in our economy dominated by finance capitalism, feminism brought outsized benefits to a few in exchange for the suffering of many. Starring Academy Award Winner Cate Blanchett as conservative firebrand Phyllis Schlafly, Hulu series “Mrs. America” has been getting awards buzz. While the writers are too skilled to give a one-dimensional portrayal of Schlafly, nonetheless the broader agenda of the show is clear: to anathematize Schlafly, build up the feminists who opposed her, and ultimately, to push for a new Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). “Mrs. America” is effective propaganda against Schlafly and conservative ideas because it...

    A host of celebrities and scientists including Madonna, Robert de Niro and a clutch of Nobel Prize winners have called for radical change in the world rather than 'a return to normal' after the coronavirus lockdowns. Hollywood stars Cate Blanchett, Jane Fonda, Marion Cotillard and Monica Bellucci also added their names to the open letter published in the French daily Le Monde. The signatories are pleading for an end to unbridled consumerism and a 'radical transformation' of economies to help save the planet. The movement has been penned and led by actress Juliette Binoche and astrophysicist Aurélien Barrau. A full...

    With the revived push for the Equal Rights Amendment has come a revived push to cast Phyllis Schlafly as a historical villain. These are revisionist efforts informed by ideological bias more than fact.

    On Thursday FX released a trailer for its upcoming series on Hulu Mrs. America about conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly’s fight against radical feminists and the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the 1970s. You can tell, based on the video and coverage of it, where sympathies are supposed to lie. When Cate Blanchett’s Schlafly character warns, “The Libbers [Women’s Liberation] want to create a sex-neutral, feminist, totalitarian nightmare,” audiences are meant to take it as a ridiculous joke instead of the astute prediction it truly was. In the preview, Schlafly is played as cold while the feminists are shown as cool....

    [snip] But the actress also reminisced about her stint on the Cannes Film Festival jury in 2018, which was led by jury president Cate Blanchett. “t was such a good year for me to be there. I’ve attended the festival a couple times with films and, oh man, I don’t know, it digs up feelings that I hold in such reverence and ones that not everybody does, quite rightfully, because that would be strange — the world is a lot more than just movies,” Stewart said, referring to her instrumental role as a female jury member in bringing gender parity...

    Talk about a crowning achievement: FX has lured Cate Blanchett to the small screen. The two-time Oscar winner has signed on to star in FX’s ’70s-set limited series Mrs. America, TVLine has learned. The gig will mark Blanchett’s first major role in a U.S. television series. Created and written by former Mad Men scribe Dahvi Waller, Mrs. America tells the true story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly (played by Blanchett). Through the eyes of the women of that era — both Schlafly and...

    “Ocean’s 8” currently sits at a 68% on Rotten Tomatoes. That’s enough for a “fresh” rating, but perhaps not as high as the studio or the stars of the film had hoped for. Well, if you talk to a couple of the actresses involved in the female-led heist film, they have an idea why that might be – a lack of diversity among the film critics. The issue of white men dominating film criticism is a bit of a hot-button issue over the last week or so. Ever since a report was published that shined a light on the fact...

    Dan Rather is coming to your local movie theater. At least the story behind why he’s no longer at CBS is. In “Truth,” Robert Redford plays Rather. Cate Blanchett plays his CBS producer Mary Mapes. In 2004, Rather reported that President George W. Bush’s powerful father arranged to keep his son in the National Guard to prevent serving in Vietnam. The report caused such hoo-hah that a treasured 24-year anchorman lost his job. Dan: “I’ve read the script. It’s serious. People behind it do a good job. It’s two great actors. You couldn’t want for a better cast. Redford playing...

    Cate Blanchett's Oscar-winning role in Blue Jasmine "nothing close to the degree of difficulty" of any of the male nominees, says "The Social Network" screenwriter Female leading Hollywood film roles are "nothing close to the degree of difficulty" of male roles, one of America's leading screenwriters has said, in the latest set of leaked emails published by the "Guardians of Peace" hacker group. Aaron Sorkin, writer of The Social Network and Moneyball, singled out Cate Blanchett's 2014 Best Actress Oscar-winning performance in Blue Jasmine as significantly easier than the performances by the five male nominees that same year. “Year in...

    WE'VE heard plenty about the carbon tax but haven't heard from plumbers, writes David Penberthy. IN a telling intervention that will change the dynamics of the debate, 13 of the nation's plumbers have spoken out about the controversial carbon tax. The group of 13 took time out on Friday from digging ditches and unblocking toilets to issue statements about the tax. The eminent plumbers represent more than two centuries of combined plumbing experience and have worked on hundreds of plumbing jobs across our nation. It is the first time a group of plumbers has united in commenting on such a...

    LOS ANGELES --Cate Blanchett is in negotiations to star opposite Harrison Ford in the long-awaited fourth installment of the ”Indiana Jones” series, her publicist confirmed Saturday. ”She is in negotiations, yes,” publicist Lisa Kasteler told The Associated Press.
