article imageReview: Cate Blanchett mesmerizes in 'Blue Jasmine,' Oscar-worthy acting

Cate Blanchett won the Golden Globe award for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture- Drama" for her portrayal of Jasmine in "Blue Jasmine."
As Digital Journal previously reported, the film was praised as "melancholy at its finest," and rightfully so.
Blanchett has always been one of my all-time favorite actresses and she outdoes herself in Blue Jasmine. It proves that she can nail any script. If she does not win the "Best Actress" Oscar for this role, then there is no justice in the world. Her mannerisms and eye movements alone as a woman over the edge were spectacular. She is able to build her character from within and there is a lot of range and depth in that role. In Blue Jasmine, she is able to command every scene that she is in.
Although she has won an Oscar for "Best Supporting Actress" for playing Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator, what is most shocking about Blanchett is that she has yet to win a "Lead Actress" Oscar, despite her flawless performance as Queen Elizabeth I in the 1998 film Elizabeth, which was one of the biggest snubs in Oscar history.
Sally Hawkins is sensational as well, and should be recognized for her supporting performance as Ginger in one way or another. This film is also a substantial indication that Woody Allen is a brilliant writer and director.
