BAFTA Awards 2014: Cate Blanchett wins Best Actress

Cate Blanchett in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine

The 2014 BAFTA Awards are underway in England and the best of the best are being honored when it comes to films and filmmakers that made waves in 2013. One of the hottest awards to win at the BAFTAs is Best Actress and this year saw a slew of talented actresses up for the honor.

But while other categories have been hard to predict, Best Actress is looking like a lock for one actress. No one is meaning disrespect to Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Judi Dench or Emma Thompson, but Cate Blanchett arrived at the BAFTAs already the winner for Best Actress.


  • Amy Adams – American Hustle as Sydney Prosser
  • Cate Blanchett – Blue Jasmine as Jeanette “Jasmine” Francis — WINNER
  • Sandra Bullock – Gravity as Dr. Ryan Stone
  • Judi Dench – Philomena as Philomena Lee
  • Emma Thompson – Saving Mr. Banks as P. L. Travers

Thompson isn’t nominated for an Oscar, as Meryl Streep is in her place, but that doesn’t change Blacnhett’s chances of winning. She’s a lock this year to win the Oscar and her slew of awards she’s picked up only reinforces this notion.
