Cate Nominated for Best Actress in Gotham Independent Film Award

Cate Blanchett has received a nomination for Best Actress for her role in Blue Jasmine in this years Gotham Independent Film Award. Here’s the Article from Cinema Blend:

The Gotham Independent Film Awards, which will be handed out on December 2, routinely honor some of the most adventurous and low-profile independent films of the year, but this year they went in for some star power as well– 12 Years A Slave is a Fox Searchlight release starring Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt among others, and the Best Feature nominees also included the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, the Richard Linklater threequel Before Midnight and the Rooney Mara-Casey Affleck-starring Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. Rounding out the Best Feature category is Upstream Color, from indie wonder Shane Carruth– like Midnight and Saints, it was a sensation at Sundance earlier this year.

Adding Best Actress and Best Actor categories for the first time this year, the Gothams singled out several Oscar hopefuls– Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthew McConaughey and Robert Redford can all expect many more nominations from here out– but also some surprises, including a nod for Isaiah Washington in the grim indie Blue Caprice and for Scarlett Johansson’s bawdy work in Don Jon. The Breakthrough Actor category, which includes both genders, included a range of familiar faces (comic actress Kathryn Hahn, who turned lead with Afternoon Delight, and future Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Dane DeHaan) along with newcomers, like 12 Years A Slave’s breakthrough star Lupita Nyong’o, who made her screen debut in the film.

Blue Jasmine Reviews

Blue Jasmine is out and it’s getting great reviews for Woody Allen and Cate Blanchett, here are some quotes, click the links to read the full reviews:

From Wall Street Journal:

“Blue Jasmine,” the filmmaker’s strongest work in many years, brings us full circle from enjoying Jasmine by deploring her to embracing her by understanding her—not as a victim, but as a tragic fool who has told so many lies to herself, never mind to others, that she has become the sum total of her pretenses and prevarications.

Los Angeles Times:

Yet for all of “Blue Jasmine’s” darkness, the movie is among the filmmaker’s most emotionally affecting. Allen is surprisingly sensitive in exposing Jasmine, one of those affluent New York sophisticates so easy to dislike. Even the melodrama attached to her new struggles — a suddenly empty bank account, a mindless job, no closet space — realities that frame everyday life for most women, is subtly calibrated to allow us to feel for her. And occasionally laugh at the absurdity of it all.

The New York Times:

What did Jasmine know, and when did she know it? These questions come to haunt “Blue Jasmine,” and as the past catches up with the present, they help drive this moving, sometimes funny film toward its shattering end. If at times Mr. Allen seems to be answering those questions by pulling the film in one direction even as Ms. Blanchett pulls it in another, this productive dissonance deepens the tension and stakes and, as with a climactic confrontation between Jasmine and Hal, can turn a raw scene into a revelation. This particular battle takes place in their living room, a mausoleumlike shrine to their wealth, painted green, where, against the color of money, they fight for their lives, frantically taking swings at each other without a thought to everyone else they are about to take down.
