Cate Blanchett is simply amazing. And I'm not just talking about the makeup in Ben Button (close kami) -- although that helped (OMG ang ganda nya), not to mention the dancing (OMFG!).
Well she had me at the two Elizabeth movies and LOTR. I didn't get too see The Aviator where she won the supporting role nod but I'm guessing her role as Daisy in this new movie is at par. Maybe even better.
