Cate recently opened up about being bored with the conversation on whether there are enough complex roles for females in Hollywood.

“Every time there’s interesting, complex roles played by actresses on-screen, someone says, ‘Do you think this is a breakthrough?’ and ‘Does this mean there’s going to be more of the same?’” Cate told reporters (via VanityFair). “We seem to find ourselves in the same conversation and that’s somehow remarkable. I think there’s a swathe of great roles for women and, certainly, there’s some wonderful female performers. It’s just time to get on with it, really.”

Cate Blanchett Might Compete Against Herself at the Oscars

Cate Blanchett walks the red carpet while attending the New York Film Festival premiere of her new movie Carol on Friday night (October 9) in New York City.

The 46-year-old actress was joined at the event by her co-star Rooney Mara.

The night before, Cate stepped out in two looks while making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Cate is getting major Oscar buzz for two movies this year – Carol and Truth. The problem is that she is the leading actress in both and the studios behind the films reportedly don’t want to move her down into the supporting actress category so she will be eligible for both. The Academy only lets talent be nominated once in each category each year, so there’s a chance Cate could split the votes and be snubbed altogether if she doesn’t get enough votes for one of the roles. This will surely make for an interesting awards season!

FYI: Cate is wearing an Aouadi Paris dress and Lorraine Schwartz earrings at the premiere. She is wearing a Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane suit at Letterman.
