Cate Blanchett fine-tuned from
Australia’s National Institute of dramatics in 1992 and, in a bit over
a year, had acquired both decisive and popular acclamation. By
acquiring the Oscar for her characterization of Katharine Hepburn, she
got the 1st human to give an Oscar-winning portrayal of a former Oscar
succeeder. 4 of her 5 Oscar nominations are for acting real people
(Queen Elizabeth I, Katharine Hepburn and Bob Dylan).
