On Thursday, Cate Blanchett was named as President of this year’s Cannes film festival jury, becoming only the 12th woman in its 71-year history to do so. Cate Blanchett, 48, has been very vocal in supporting the dozens of women who came forward with allegations of sexual assault and harassment against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
She is a well known and popular actress who has received international acclaim and many accolades, including two Academy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, three BAFTA Awards, six AACTA Awards, and three Screen Actors Guild Awards.
She said upon her appointment ….
I have been to Cannes in many guises over the years; as an actress, producer, in the marketplace, the gala-sphere, and in competition, “But never solely for the sheer pleasure of watching the cornucopia of films this great festival harbors. I am humbled by the privilege and responsibility of presiding over this year’s jury.
This year’s Cannes festival will take place on the French Riviera from May 8-19.
