Cate Blanchett—our inimitable January cover girl—scored a Golden Globe nomination this afternoon for her starring turn in Woody Allen’s
Blue Jasmine. If you haven’t seen it yet, get thee to a theatre this weekend. Here’s what Cate told us about her character, Jasmine: "
Post-financial crisis, so many men and women have had their worlds shattered and they have fallen from grace. And, like Jasmine, they have had to look at themselves directly in the mirror and reinvent themselves and find out who they are without their social standing, without economic security. I think this story is very current. The unique thing about Jasmine, however, is that she has been a fantasist and has never had a firm grip on who she is or on reality."
