Lip Maestro Shade 214 & Oggi Magazine Scans

Hi, Blanchetters!

Another video from Armani Beauty for their LIP MAESTRO Campaign has been released, this time Cate Blanchett wears shade 214 of the lipstick. We also have magazine scans from Oggi No. 34 issue.

A full length trailer for TÁR was recently rated and the length of the trailer is 2 minutes and 25 seconds. It will likely be released this week or the week after which coincides with the world premiere of the movie at Venice Film Festival.

Magazine Scans

Below is a part of the magazine article that is a google translated version from Italian to English. Original text can be found on the scans.

CATE THE WOMAN WHO LOVES WOMEN

At the Venice Film Festival, Blanchett will play Lydia Tár, a conductor who falls in love with two musicians. For other performances as a lesbian she has become a gay icon. But she says: “I also played an elf, yet I’m not immortal”.

Ferragamo shoes, tailor-made suits, scarf, Van Cleef & Arpels jewels, vintage handbag on the arm, chic, unresolved and courageous, yet also revolutionary: Cate Blanchett in Carol is a bourgeois close to divorce who falls in love with a saleslady, aspiring photographer, Therese, in the 50s. No wonder that they are waiting for her at the Venice Film Festival (31 August – 10 September): critics and cinephiles and the LGBTQ + community – all of them curious and anxious for her new film Tár, in competition at #Venezia79. Blanchett is Lydia Tár, one of the greatest conductors in the world and certainly the greatest in Germany. The environment is competitive and male chauvinistic. She must always prove that she is good, that she is up to the role, that she really knows the music. Plus she falls in love with two musicians. The trailer, recently posted on the web, does not speak of all this. On the contrary, it speaks of a pandemic, of bees, of the challenges that await us. There is no life of Lydia Tár who in the trailer dresses simple, in light green and appears unadorned, the opposite of Carol, with her wavy hairstyle. Biennale Cinema keep their mouths sewn together, but there is certainly this – that Blanchett will be very good in this new role of hers with (also) a homosexual theme.

Blanchett has been a gay icon since Carol’s day, very proud of it. When she posed with Nicole Kidman in a jacket and boyish pants in 2019, the web appreciated it a lot, they had butterflies in their stomachs, loving what is called her “lesbian aesthetics”. In a video from 2020, Blanchett jokingly said aloud: “I’m a lesbian.”. It happened during Instagram live with Sarah Paulson, a pansexual, star of American Horror Story, and co-star in Mrs America. Moreover, speaking of Mrs America (which tells the story of the US feminist movement), Blanchett has remained a gay icon, although in the series she plays the ultraconservative, Phyllis Schlafly, married for 44 years to the same man and mother of six children. Practically it is the only point of contact between the two. Blanchett has been married since 1997 (25 years of marriage) to playwright Andrew Upton, a bearded gentleman who looks like everyone’s neighbor, they have four children and live at Highwell House. They also have a wing dedicated to their art collection. One of the many times she was asked about her marriage, she replied: “With my husband I won the lottery and consequently with my family.”

Cate Blanchett on AACTA International Awards Longlist, and THR magazine scan

Hi, everyone!

We’ve compiled some news on Cate that were released recently. Check them out.

The Hollywood Reporter – February 3rd 2021

Cate Blanchett’s Dirty Films, New Republic to Produce ‘Queen Bitch and the High Horse’

Cate Blanchett’s Dirty Films and New Republic Pictures (NRP) have signed on to produce “Queen Bitch & The High Horse,” which will be directed by Bert and Bertie (“Troop Zero”).

Eric Matthew Brown is writing the screenplay, while Blanchett, Coco Francini and Andrew Upton of Dirty Films are producing alongside Brian Oliver and Bradley Fischer of New Republic.

This is the first film acquired under Dirty Films’ first-look deal with New Republic.

“Queen Bitch & The High Horse” is inspired by the largest municipal fraud in American history. It follows Penny Banks, an ambitious woman whose passion for civic duty was eclipsed by her love for horses. As she rises the ranks of city hall, she embezzles millions to fund a show horse empire.

“We are beyond excited to bring this gorgeously penned, compelling, funny and fiendish film to screen with such a brilliant team. Queen Bitches, you’re going to love it,” Bert and Bertie said.

Blanchett, Francini and Upton added: “We are thrilled to bring this fantastic script to life with our partners at New Republic Pictures and the formidable directing team of Bert & Bertie, who will bring their signature playful and bold vision to this timely, resonant film about what happens when citizens deify their leaders, and the leaders forget who they serve.”

Cate Blanchett, Mrs. America, and Stateless on AACTA International Awards Longlist

The acting category boasts worldly favourites including AACTA Vice-President Nicole Kidman with her intense performance in The Undoing, the psychological thriller that had us all on the edge of our seats, to AACTA Ambassador Cate Blanchett who plays Phyllis Schlafly in Mrs America with frightening charisma – with both also receiving 2021 Golden Globe nominations for their stunning performances.

World-class Australian cast and crew also feature across the Drama and Comedy categories in productions vying for an AACTA International Award nomination. These include home-grown, hilarious productions such as Aunty Donna’s Big Ol House of Fun and LOL: Last One Laughing, the Australian stories depicted across Mystery RoadUpright and Stateless, and the stunning cinematography delivered by multi-award-winning Australian cinematographer Greig Fraser in Best Drama contender, The Mandalorian.
