    Mmmm, you don’t need an excuse to put a picture of Cate up on the blog.

    Did she win something?

  2. Mark Bahnisch says:

    Yep, best supporting actress for The Aviator.

    nice pic, mark, nice.
    there is something about cate blanchett, those cheekbones and those intelligent eyes that translate into a presence and classy screen sultriness that is simply lacking in her more vacant-looking fellow blonde, Gwyneth Paltrow, yessiree.

    Perhaps Hollywood, after the failure of its attempts to influence the election, is attempting to make amends to middle America? We will have to wait and see.

    “We will have to wait and see.”

    I’m reminded of the Bill Hicks’s liberal-inverted quip (about Gulf War 1), “I was in the difficult position of being for the war but against our troops.”
