47th César Ceremony: Australian actress Cate Blanchett will receive the César d’Honneur

The César d’Honneur will be awarded to Australian actress Cate Blanchett during the 47th César Ceremony, scheduled for February 25, 2022 on the stage of the Olympia in Paris.

Already twice Oscar winner (2005 and 2014), the Australian actress will receive this distinction for the whole of her career, her engagements and her personality “absolutely remarkable”, indicated the organizers.

“With immense admiration, we will cheer him on the Olympia stage to give him a César d’Honneur for this absolutely remarkable career and personality,” they point out.

Co-founder and director of the production company Dirty Films, alongside her partners Andrew Upton and Coco Francini, Cate Blanchett (52) is a “multifaceted artist, who works in film, television, theater” , adds the press release.

Since her debut as an actress, her career has been marked by international nominations and awards: Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Dramatic Film in 1999 for her portrait of Queen “Elizabeth” in Shekhar Kapur’s film; Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 2005 for her portrayal of Katharine Hepburn in Martin Scorsese’s “Aviator”; Volpi Cup at the Venice Film Festival in 2007 for his daring incarnation of singer Bob Dylan in “I’m not there” by Todd Haynes; Oscar for Best Actress in 2014 for her role in “Blue Jasmine” by Woody Allen; Stanley Kubrick Prize for Excellence in Cinema in 2018…, remind the organizers.

Cate Blanchett wows audiences with every one of her appearances, whether as a bewitching Elven Queen in Peter Jackson’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Hobbit’ trilogies, as an evil goddess in Taika Waititi’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, or desperate for love with David Fincher in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” or with Todd Haynes in “Carol”.

Outside of the sets, Cate Blanchett is also “actively involved in particular for women’s rights or ecology”. Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency, the Crystal Prize at the World Economic Forum in Davos was awarded to her in 2018 for her work and dedication.
