 Cate Blanchett Biography

Cate Blanchett is an Australian actress, producer, and theatre director. Regarded as one of the greatest actresses of her generation, she is noted for her versatile roles in blockbusters, independent films, and in her stage work in various theatre productions. She has received numerous accolades, including two Academy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, and three British Academy Film Awards.

After graduating from the National Institute of Dramatic Art, Blanchett began her acting career on the Australian stage, taking on roles in Electra in 1992 and Hamlet in 1994. She came to international attention for portraying Elizabeth I in the drama film Elizabeth (1998), for which she won the Golden Globe and BAFTA Award for Best Actress, and received her first of seven Academy Award nominations. Her portrayal of Katharine Hepburn in Martin Scorsese's The Aviator (2004) won her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, and she later won the Academy Award for Best Actress for playing a neurotic former socialite in Woody Allen's comedy-drama Blue Jasmine (2013).

Blanchett's highest-grossing films include Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001–2003) and The Hobbit trilogy (2012–2014), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008), Cinderella (2015), Thor: Ragnarok (2017) and Ocean's 8 (2018). From 2008 to 2013, Blanchett and her husband, Andrew Upton, served as the artistic directors of the Sydney Theatre Company. Some of her stage roles during this period were in revivals of A Streetcar Named Desire, Uncle Vanya and The Maids. She made her Broadway debut in 2017 with The Present, for which she received a Tony Award nomination.

The Australian government awarded Blanchett the Centenary Medal in 2001 and she was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia in 2017. In 2012, she was appointed Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government. Blanchett has been presented with honorary Doctor of Letters degrees from the University of New South Wales, University of Sydney and Macquarie University. In 2015, she was honored by the Museum of Modern Art and received the British Film Institute Fellowship. Time magazine named Blanchett one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2007, and in 2018, she was ranked among the world's highest-paid actresses.

In 2020, Blanchett returned to television by starring in two miniseries. She played a supporting role in the Australian drama series Stateless, inspired by the controversial mandatory detention case of Cornelia Rau. She also headlined and produced the FX/Hulu historical drama miniseries Mrs. America, starring as conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly.

Blanchett and her husband Andrew Upton's Dirty Films production company was signed with New Republic Pictures for feature films, and FX Networks for TV series. Blanchett served as an executive producer on the Greek film Apples, directed by Christos Nikou.

Blanchett will next star alongside Bradley Cooper in Guillermo del Toro's adaptation of Nightmare Alley by William Lindsay Gresham, which is scheduled to be released by Searchlight Pictures in December 2021. She will voice a role in Pinocchio, also directed by Del Toro for Netflix. She is also set to portray Lilith in Borderlands, a live action adaptation of the video game of the same name for Lionsgate, re-uniting her with director Eli Roth. She will be appearing in Adam McKay's Don't Look Up, a political satire for Netflix, and the coming of age drama Armageddon Time in a small role portraying Donald Trump's sister, directed by James Gray alongside Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway and Oscar Isaac.

Blanchett's production company, Dirty Films, is set to produce Christos Nikou's English-language film debut, Fingernails, starring Carey Mulligan.
