Creating Art & Sharing Love Since 2009

Cate Blanchett for president!

Last time I watched Cate on the big screen? It was in ‘Thor Ragnarok’ haha.. no, seriously! I loved her role there. It was the best bad girl Marvel could get. The actress proved she can do everything - from Oscar winning movies to comic cons, with all her elegance and sophistication the same way. but why am I talking about superheroes movies? Thor was launched months ago.. you can already watch it on airplanes tvs.. One word: Cannes. Cate took her royalty beauty (speaking of queens..) to the festival and she “slayed” as president of the jury this year - and I’m not talking about dresses! So here’s now, my palm d’or goes for the Diva Cate Blanchett.

From The New York Times: "Eighty-two women working in the film industry swarmed the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday to denounce the gender inequality in their field.

Why 82? Because in the 71 festival competitions since 1946, only 82 movies by female directors have been in contention for prizes. This compares with a total of 1,645 films by male directors. Only one movie by a female director, “The Piano” by Jane Campion, has ever won the festival’s top prize, the Palme d’Or.

The 82 women — who included the French filmmaker Agnès Varda and the actresses Salma Hayek and Marion Cotillard — appeared on the red carpet for the premiere of “Girls of the Sun” by Eva Husson. Ms. Husson is one of three female directors among the 21 Palme d’Or contenders this year.

As songs including “Woman” by Neneh Cherry blared from the loudspeakers, the 82 women in evening dress walked up the carpeted staircase, then turned around to face the crowd.

Cate Blanchett, this year’s competition jury president, and Ms. Varda took to the microphone to voice the protesters’ concerns. Ms. Varda said, “Women are not a minority in the world, and yet our industry says the opposite. We want this to change.”

In an interview as she left the red carpet, Ms. Hayek described the event as a historic moment and “an important part of the conversation.” She added that as a producer, she was already seeing change in the appetite for projects by and about women."
