Cate Blanchett - World's Greatest Actress 

I just finished watching The Aviator, which I've had via Netflix for about 3 months. What can I say, I've been busy. While the movie was quite good, the absolute best part of it was Cate Blanchett's performance as Katherine Hepburn. I don't think there is another actress today who can so seamlessly flow from one performance to another, never making you say "hey look, it's Cate Blanchett playing a role" but always making you believe the part.

It's quite stunning, really. From Elizabeth where she played the titular (heh ... titular) character, to The Gift where she played a southern mother, to The Aviator, she simply outacts everyone around her.

Of course, I'm a little behind as she already won the Oscar, but I felt like sharing.
