Cate Blanchett wins Longford Lyell Award for cultural contribution

On the way to another Academy Award nomination, Cate Blanchett has won Australia’s highest screen honour.

The two-time Oscar winner has been named winner of the Longford Lyell Award from the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts.

Recognising an outstanding contribution to the country’s screen environment and culture, the award will be presented by Richard Roxburgh and Hugo Weaving at the AACTA Awards in Sydney on Wednesday, with video tributes from Robert Redford, Ron Howard and Ridley Scott.

“When I look at the outstanding men and women who have received this prestigious award before me, I am truly honoured to be considered among venerable practitioners and performers; creative spirits who have had a strong and lasting influence, not only on my work, but on what I thought creatively possible in this country,” Blanchett said in a statement.

What was known as the Raymond Longford Award in honour of the pioneering filmmaker was changed to recognise his creative and life partner, actress and filmmaker Lottie Lyell, this year.

“I applaud AACTA for expanding this award to acknowledge Lottie Lyell’s rich creative legacy,” Blanchett said. “The paths we forge in this great film industry of ours are rarely linear and Lyell’s astonishing achievements as an actress of stage and screen, as a writer, producer and director stand as an inspiration for us all.”

As AACTA president, Rush said Blanchett would be celebrated for generations as one of the finest performers of our times.

“She is in the company of but a few performers in this world whose ownership of their craft has redefined it for the rest; taking performance to new levels of excellence to which many aspire,” he said.

“But as much as Cate is the master of her craft through classical training, she has that rare thing of innate talent. She has intuition and intelligence in spades, and a willingness and ability to be raw and vulnerable in performance, through to fierce and challenging.”

Rush said he first saw Blanchett perform as a student at NIDA in Sydney and had tracked “her bright star” rising.

“Today it is a pleasure to see Cate honoured as one of our best, alongside so many of Australia’s great men and women of screen. I couldn’t be more proud of, or more pleased for, this exceptional woman and performer.”

Cate Blanchett starts rehearsals with Deborah Mailman for the AACTA Awards

PREPARATIONS for the 4th annual AACTA awards are well underway, with actress Cate Blanchett flying into Sydney to begin rehearsals.

Hollywood’s leading lady will co-host the awards night alongside The Sapphires actress, Deborah Mailman later this month.

The pair, who hadn’t seen each other for a while, spent a few minutes catching up, before shooting the video opener for the night’s broadcast.

“It’s an honour to host the 4th AACTA Awards with Deb, a shining light of Australian film and television,” Blanchett said.

“The AACTAs celebrate our nation’s creativity and our talents as storytellers, and I’m proud to be part of this national celebration.”

The AACTA Awards will be held at The Star Event Centre in Sydney on January 29 and will be broadcast on Network 10.

Deborah Mailman and Cate Blanchett to co-host the AACTA Awards

DON’T expect witty banter from actress Deborah Mailman when she co-hosts the AACTA Awards with Hollywood leading lady, Cate Blanchett.

The AACTA Awards will be held in Sydney on January 29 and Mailman, who will next appear in the movie Paper Planes, was feeling confident about her hosting duties.

The 42-year-old does, however, expect a few pre-show jitters.

I think closer to the date I will probably have a few nerves, and I am expecting that, but at the same time it is a great honour to be side by side with Cate,” Mailman, who lives in Wollongong with her husband and two children, said.

“But this is a time when the general public can take pride in the work and the films we are making in this country.”

AACTA president Geoffrey Rush, who has worked with both ladies, said he couldn’t think of two better and more successful women to host the well respected event.

The AACTA Awards celebrate Australia’s finest, and who better to headline this annual bash than two fabulous women who have blazed like comets across our screens at home and abroad,” Rush said.

“I encourage everyone to tune in to see these performers at play.”

The 4th annual Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts awards ceremony at The Star Event Centre, will be broadcast on Network 10.
