Cate Blanchett’s 10 Best Movies

Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett is possibly the most versatile actress in Hollywood.  She’s played Queen Elizabeth (twice and been Oscar nominated for it both times), Katherine Hepburn, Elvish Monarch Galadriel, Bob Dylan, Cinderella’s Evil Stepmother, slain Irish journalist Veronica Guerin, disgraced American journalist Mary Mapes, and will soon lay low Asgard as Hela, the Queen of Hel (Vikings don’t use double “l”s for their underworld).  Any one of these parts, and the dozens more she’s taken on, could swallow an actress or force her into scenery-chewing characiture (I hate I’m Not Here, but her Bob Dylan is freaky).  She’s an actress you take notice of whenever she’s attached to anything.  She brought ethereal beauty to Middle-Earth and now she’s bringin Hel to the MCU.
