Cate Blanchett Movies
After a short stint traveling in Europe and North Africa, she enrolled at the National Institute of Dramatic Art and proved herself in theater productions and on Australian TV. After landing a lead role in Oscar and Lucinda, Blanchett starred in The Talented Mr. Ripley, Pushing Tin and An Ideal Husband, and joined cinema's biggest franchise by playing an elf queen in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
In 2004, Blanchett was nominated for a Golden Globe for her portrayal of hard-driving, justice-seeking journalist Veronica Guerin in the movie of the same name. She won the Oscar statuette for playing Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator (2004) and received another nod for Notes on a Scandal (2006).
In this dramatic re-creation of news anchor Dan Rather's fall from grace, his stellar career comes to an abrupt end after erroneously reporting that President George W. Bush received preferential treatment that kept him from serving in Vietnam.
