Cate Blanchett Is Honored with Longford Lyell Award at 2015 AACTA Awards!
Cate Blanchett keeps it chic and sophisticated on the red carpet while attending the 2015 AACTA Awards presented by Presto at The Star on Wednesday (December 9) in Sydney, Australia.
Cate hit the stage in tears to receive the AACTA Longford Lyell Award.
“When I look at the outstanding men and women who have received this prestigious award before me, I am truly honoured to be considered among venerable practitioners and performers; creative spirits who have had a strong and lasting influence, not only on my work, but on what I thought creatively possible in this country,” Cate expressed. “I applaud AACTA for expanding this award to acknowledge Lottie Lyell’s rich creative legacy. The paths we forge in this great film industry of ours are rarely linear and Lyell’s astonishing achievements as an actress of stage and screen, as a writer, producer and director stand as an inspiration for us all.”
FYI: Cate is wearing a Giorgio Armani long black silk cady gown. Elizabeth is wearing a MIU MIU gown.
