Cate Blanchett to Be Honored by Costume Designers Guild

Cate Blanchett will receive the Lacoste Spotlight Award at the 18th Costume Designers Guild Awards on Feb. 23 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The guild said the award honors an actor whose talent and career personify an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design.

“Blanchett is being honored for her unparalleled talent as much as for her status within the costume design community,” the guild said. “Her appreciation for the artistry of costume design and her collaboration with the Costume Designers has made her an icon both on and off the screen.”

Blanchett won an Academy Award for best actress for “Blue Jasmine” and for best supporting actress for “The Aviator.” She was nominated for four other Oscars for “Elizabeth,” “Elizabeth: The Golden Age,” “Notes on a Scandal” and “I’m Not There.” Her credits include “Cinderella,” “Veroica Guerin,” “Bandits,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” “The Lord of the Rings Trilogy” and “The Hobbit Trilogy.”

She stars alongside Rooney Mara in “Carol,” directed by Todd Haynes, and has been nominated for a Golden Globes best actress award. She starred as Mary Mapes in “Truth” opposite Robert Redford and will appear soon in Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups.”

But the franchise prayers that an open-ended fadeout dangles [...]

    Of all the characters in Walt Disney Studios’ canon, is there any more animated than the Genie from “Aladdin”? In 1992, old-school cartooning seemed the only way to keep up with comedian Robin Williams’ rapid-fire sense of humor and free-associative gift for improvisation. Much of the appeal of the original “Aladdin” came thanks to the [...]
