Australian actress Cate Blanchett criticized what she described as the “masculine hierarchy” during the award ceremonies, during her speech after receiving the award for Best Actress at the Critics’ Choice Awards presented by the Broadcast Film Critics Association “BFCA” in Los Angeles.
The Oscar nominee, whose performance as an aspiring conductor in the classic musical “Tar” won her multiple awards, said she hoped the “makeup” of award ceremonies would change drastically. And she added after receiving the award from the most prominent critics association in North America, “What is this patriarchal hierarchy, behind which someone stands here?”
I share the prize with you.
She added, “Why don’t we just say there is a group of women performing in concert or movies, and permanently stop the televised horse racing?” And she added, “Because every woman, whether she appears on television, in a movie, in an advertisement, or in any medium, plays an amazing role, and they all inspire me constantly. So thank you. And I share the award with all of you.”
Blanchett has previously won two Oscars for “Blue Gasmen” and “The Aviator”. Last week, she won a Golden Globe for her role in “Tar”, but she missed the party.
Other award ceremonies, including the Independent Spirit Awards, the MTV Movie Awards, the Grammy Music Awards, have become neutral in the treatment of males and females. However, awards given by critics, such as the Oscars and most other Hollywood rewards, are still given equally between males and females.
“out of the spotlight”
Blanchett’s statement came minutes after Brendan Fraser delivered a touching speech in which he thanked those who voted for him for the Best Actor award for his performance in “The Whale”. Frazier, one of Hollywood’s leading stars of the late 1990s and early 2000s with hits such as his role in “The Mummy”, had a long break before taking on the role of a chubby teacher in the new and critically acclaimed work.
“I was out of the spotlight,” Frazier told director Darren Aronofsky. “Maybe I should have left some signs to get to me. But you guys found me.”
“If, like the man I’m playing in the movie, you’re overweight, or you feel like you’re in a dark sea, I want you to know that if you’re also strong enough to get up from your tragedy and work your way out of it, good things will happen to you.” .
The most prominent concerts
Presented by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the Critics’ Choice Awards is one of the highlights ahead of the highly anticipated Oscars event on March 12.
Sci-fi thriller “Everything Everywhere Comes at Once” won Best Picture at Sunday’s gala, boosting its bid for the Best Picture Oscar.
In addition to winning the Best Picture award, the work won four other awards: Best Director for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, Best Screenplay, Best Editing, and Best Supporting Actor for Ke Hui Kan.
Among the awards given to television work, “Better Call Saul”, which is the sixth part of the famous “Breaking Bad” series, won the award for best drama series for the first time, in addition to winning Best Actor for Bob Odenkirk and Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Giancarlo Esposito. .
