Blanchett backstage at the Oscars

Cate Blanchett got one of the night’s biggest laughs backstage with her emphatic, “Will the Oscar change me? Absolutely, a******!” Mostly, though, the soft-spoken thesp was self-effacing about her award. “I was trained in theater school, and the more films I make, the more education I get in the medium. Certainly working with Martin Scorsese was a minute-by-minute education, and I can’t believe I’m standing here.” She acknowledged she was sensitive about playing a Hollywood legend in Katharine Hepburn, who died just after Blanchett accepted the role. “So many people in the Academy worked with her or knew her.”
