I doubt that you’d get any argument that Cate Blanchett is one of the world’s great actresses, both on stage and screen. The sheer versatility she has displayed in her performances on film especially has made her one of the world’s most sought-after screen stars over the past two decades. She’s now made her way to the small screen with FX on Hulu’s new limited series “Mrs. America,” which casts her as anti-Equal Rights Amendment activist Phyllis Schlafly.
Blanchett has been nominated for seven Academy Awards with two wins for “The Aviator” (2004) and “Blue Jasmine” (2013), prevailing as a supporting actress the first time and then as a lead. She has received ten Golden Globe nominations with three wins for “Elizabeth” (1998), “I’m Not There” (2007) and “Blue Jasmine.” Blanchett has also earned 14 Screen Actors Guild Award nominations with three wins for “The Aviator,” “Blue Jasmine” and as part of the ensemble cast of “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” (2003).
She’s never been nominated for an Emmy, however, which could certainly change with her acclaimed performance as conservative activist Schlafly.
