Cate Blanchett looked absolutely stunning at the Bafta Awards 2014. She won a curly haired golden mask for the category of Best Actress. Cate especially mentioned the late Philip Seymour Hoffman but forgot to name the director of her movie. Her black dress with metallic designs emblazoned on its front was the ultimate personality-enhancing fashion statement.
Cate Blanchett was seated in row G and so she thought that she would not be receiving any awards this time around. But to her surprise she won the BAFTA award for Best Actress.
Her role of a socialite who suffers from a nervous breakdown in Woody Allen’s movie Blue Jasmine was fulfilled with dedicated effort and finesse. When the protagonist is divorced by her financier husband she undergoes a mental upheaval of sorts.
Cate who approached the podium gave a rousing speech in which she made it a point to talk about Philip Seymour Hoffman. She said that he had really inspired her and countless others. In the end she spoke while facing the sky “Phil, buddy, this is for you, you bastard, hope you’re proud.”
Someone whom Cate didn’t pay any heed to was Woody Allen, the director of Blue Jasmine. Woody’s reputation for inappropriately flirting with nubile females may be the reason why he was best left unmentioned. Cate beat Judi Dench, Amy Adams and Sandra Bullock to win the most-coveted accolade.
Before this she has won the Best Supporting Actress Award for her role in the Aviator with Leonardio DiCaprio. But that was an Academy Award. This time it is a Bafta which is a pleasant surprise for Cate. Her form-fitting black dress was the epitome of high civilization and culture.
The silver metallic prints spread on its front part gave it an exotic and erotic look. Cate positively portrayed her most self-confident persona at the Bafta Awards 2014.
