The MoMA Film Department celebrated its 80th birthday on Tuesday evening and presented the annual award for Best Cinematographer. This time, special honors from the Museum of Modern Art were awarded to Cate Blanchett, winner of two Oscars (for the female lead in Woody Allen's film Jasmine and for her supporting role in Aviator by Martin Scorsese), as well as a participant in seven films, this film award nominated. Accepting congratulations at a dinner held at MoMA the day before, the actress could not help but mention the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and Beirut, saying that she feels the insignificance of her efforts against the background of what is happening in the world. “Thousands of refugees crossing the border find themselves in an increasingly risky and difficult position,” Agence France Presse quotes the continuation of Cate Blanchett's speech.- It will sound like a huge excuse (perhaps in the face of world events), but sometimes you are given the opportunity to work on projects about which you want to say something interesting and important. The last year was just like that for me. " The actress talked primarily about the film "Truth" by James Vanderbilt, in which she had a chance to play the role of CBS producer Mary Mapes, as well as about her last film work in the film "Carol" by Todd Haynes.
Cate Blanchett, head of MoMA's film department, Rajenta Roy, says Cate Blanchett is "a woman who embodies the best traditions of acting and at the same time takes risks and changes boldly." Continuing the Avenue of Stars, which already have a MoMA award in their collection, the museum includes the actress in an excellent company: among the winners of the award are Tilda Swinton, Tim Burton, Pedro Almodovar, Quentin Tarantino and a number of other titled figures from the world of cinema. Martin Scorsese, Rooney Mara, Diane Kruger and other celebrities came to congratulate Blanchett on a new important date in her biography.
