    If she’s nominated for Carol,
    it will be her 7th acting nomination. It’s true the likes of Jane
    Fonda, Judi Dench and Ingrid Bergman also have this many- but I see Cate
    getting at least 12 nods in her career. If so, she could surpass Katharine Hepburn as the second most nominated actress of all time – with only Meryl
    Streep ahead (very ahead, 19 bids lol).

    So far, Cate’s record has been excellent:

    Best Actress, 1998 (Elizabeth)

    Best Supporting Actress, 2004 (The Aviator)
    Best Supporting Actress, 2006 (Notes on a Scandal)

    Best Supporting Actress, 2007 (I’m Not There)

    Best Actress, 2007 (Elizabeth: The Golden Age)

    Best Actress, 2013 (Blue Jasmine)

    With 2 Academy Awards already under her belt, and a surefire nod for
    her upcoming film (along with Rooney Mara, possibly) – I can see her
    achieving this. She should have won for Elizabeth (1998), and I also
    think she’s going to win at least one more. She’s at the height of her
    career now and she’s only 46.

    Mind you, I love Judi Dench (7 nods), but the poor gal only won 1
    Oscar for arguably her weakest work (Shakespeare in Love), when she
    should have won for Mrs. Brown or Notes on a Scandal. And Kate Winslet,
    who also has 6 nods, doesn’t seem to be doing as much work (the Steve
    Jobs movie aside).

    The only other woman I can see gaining as much steam as Blanchett at
    this point would be Jennifer Lawrence- whom I am not the biggest fan
    of, but you have to admit- three Oscar nods already within four years
    including a win ain’t bad.

    Sorry for ranting- I am just super excited for Blanchett because she’s becoming my new favorite actress (along with my past favorites- Anjelica Huston, Susan Sarandon, Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep).

    Anyone have thoughts on this?

    Blanchett achieving at least 12 is plausible. Based on the buzz Carol is getting, then a 7th nod is almost in the cards if the film doesn’t peak too early. Like Meryl Streep, Blanchett seems to be becoming one of those actresses that doesn’t need buzz or campaigning to secure a nomination. When she won for Blue Jasmine, she was practically invisible on the campaign trail.



    But in the case of Jennifer Lawrence, if she can work with directors other than David O. Russell,  we’ll see if she can get as much heat as Blanchett. Sure, her first nomination was for Winter’s Bone (which I still consider her best work and which wasn’t an O. Russell film), but her recent Oscar vehicles were directed by him. So if she can escape him, then we shall see.

    On a more positive note, though, Blanchett has also become one of my favorites and in my top five along with Tilda Swinton, Julianne Moore, Marion Cotillard, and Amy Adams.

    Pardon me ….. what record will Cate Blanchett exactly set to break ….. Nomination or Win ???

    We must all concede that ….. Breaking Streep Oscar Acting Nominations record ….. will NOT HAPPEN in our generation or lifetime  !!!

    Being 2nd is not breaking records ….. in the strictest sense  !!!

    One record that she could be on the cusp on is Thelma Ritter’s Supporting Actress nominations record of 6. While she has moved into Lead recently she could just as easily drop down and get some more nominations there. Don’t know if that would apply to Carol in particular. From what I understand, she’s quite firmly a co-lead, but in the future, I could see a shift.

    I also admire Blanchett (she’s my favorite actress since I saw her in Elizabeth), but I don’t really care for her Oscar records. She won’t surpass Streep in noms and Hepburn in awards (although in both cases I wish she would). 
    Besides, she’s got two Oscars, one in each category, so I think she’s good 🙂 
    And as long as she keeps doing interesting things (like Carol and Cinderella this year) I’m happy. Fingers crossed she will be a nominee next year and will tie Ingrid Bergman some day in the future.

    No Streep records will ever be surpassed but I do believe Blanchett will challenger Hepburns meager 12 nominations and possibly win a third in 20 more years or so.

    Blanchett is not above taking supporting roles for ensemble vehicles. However she will not bow down for Mara this season with Carol. And movies can have more than one lead.

    Agreed. Especially knowing that she’s moved to USA and will be focusing more on film work instead of theatre.

    I felt the same way when I read the news. The experience of making Blue Jasmine and the recognition she received afterwards ignited her passion for film again.

    We’ll see. Atm Blanchett has HALF the nominations of K.Hepburn whereas Meryl in the same age had 10 already.
    I also doubt Meryl will have to wait another 20 years to get a fourth. It will happen the next 10 years, I’m certain.
    I’m not saying or wishing Blanchett won’t surpass Hepburn, but let’s talk about that when she’s actually near it.
    No one knows what comes the next years. She might stop at 8 or 9. Could also happen, we don’t know yet.
    People also forget not every praised iconic performance has won Oscars. Not even the great Bette Davis won a third one. A real shame if you ask me.
    It will be the first time she’s up to Jennifer Lawrence so I’m curious how that race will turn out. Or both are beaten by someone who’s not even on the radar yet.

    Just wondering how Cate Blanchett would react when the time comes that she indeed broke Streep or someone else’ Oscar record ???

    Likewise, how Blanchett would prematurely react that she is currently being “overrated” as someone set to break an Oscar record ???

    In 2003, if I recall right, when Streep got her Nomination #13 for Adaptation and officially broke Katharine Hepburn’s nomination record, Streep made a “humble” or “full-of-humility” official statement expressing somewhat like …..

    “….. I am greatly honored & humbled to be even mentioned in the same sentence with her  (i.e. Kate Hepburn) ……”

    And with the rate Streep is going, she’s “on track” to double Hepburn’s 12 Nominations  !!!

    When Blanchett get her 7th for Carol, that would be 1/3 of Streep’s 21st presuming Streep get double nominations for Suffragette & Ricki and The Flash  !!! 

    What would Blanchett’s official statement be for her 7th  ???

    Streep’s longetivity in the Oscar arena is due largely to her versatility, she plays the violin, she speaks Aussie, she is Julia Child, she sings, she rocks…. Every role is different from the previous one. I can’t really say that about Blanchett, not yet but we’ll see. This is not a criticism of the latter, but Oscar goes for variety, especially if you are going into your fifth consecutive decade of being nominated. Laurence Olivier’s survived into the seventies because he was different every time with every role. And of course it helps that Streep is believable in all these roles, mostly.

    I never intended this thread to pertain to Streep’s career lol (I LOVE the woman, as we all know, and no one can touch her nods.) I was more interested in what people thought about Blanchett’s chances to surpassing Hepburn’s nods. Like the different view points so far.
