Gotta admit, I love Cate Blanchett too. Although I think The Good German is probably better forgotten . . .

George Clooney presents Cate Blanchett with Lifetime Achievement award at the G’Day USA American Association Arts Gala.
George Clooney has paid a massive compliment to an Australian star, calling her “easily the best actor of her generation”.
Clooney made the comment about Cate Blanchett during the virtual G’Day USA American Australian Association Arts Gala which was held today.
Blanchett, who has won two Oscars and three Golden Globes, received the Lifetime Achievement Award during the ceremony.
The award was introduced by Clooney who kicked off the segment by joking: “Hi, I’m Brad Pitt. I know I don’t look so good. After I won the Oscar I just said, ‘To hell with it!’ I stopped taking care of myself.”

He then went on to praise Blanchett who he has worked with on several films including The Good German and The Monuments Men.
“I’ve been asked to say a few words about Cate who is winning a Lifetime Achievement award,” he said. “I have to tell you what an honour it is to talk about someone of her calibre.
“I’ve worked with her as a director, I’ve worked with her as an actor, and when I say calibre I’m not just talking about her obvious talent as an actress,” Clooney said.
“She’s easily the best actor of her generation. She is a consummate professional. She solves problem on a set all the time. And more than that, is how she solves problems in the rest of the world. It’s what she does in trying to bring justice and hope to all the people who don’t have justice and don’t have hope.”

Orange Is The New Black star Uzo Aduba and American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson also paid tribute to Blanchett in the segment, with the latter saying: “There’s not a single time that I’ve worked with Cate where I haven’t had the eye-opening experience of watching real magic happen.”
When accepting the award, Blanchett thanked “all the trailblazers who paved the way for actors like myself” and listed a series of well-known Aussies including George Miller, Phil Noyce and Rachel Perkins.
