Cate Blanchett Calls For The End Of Televised Awards Shows While Accepting A Critics Choice Award On The CW…

The Critics Choice Awards aired on The CW final night time, and a not-so-surprising visitor crashed that shit like, “Bitch, I’m STILL here.” I’m speaking about COVID-19. Nominees Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Jamie Lee Curtis, in addition to presenter Michelle Pfeiffer, needed to sit the present out after testing optimistic for Coronavirus. COVID-19 didn’t fuck with Cate Blanchett, although. She confirmed as much as final night time’s ceremony, received Best Actress for her efficiency in Tár, and used a few of her time on stage to reward all actresses within the enterprise and in addition declared that we have to lastly name the time of dying on the “televised horse race” often called awards reveals. And then Cate galloped away along with her Critics Choice Award in hand to position it proper subsequent to her two Oscars, three BAFTAs, 4 Golden Globes, three SAG Awards, and lots of different horse race prizes.

The nominees for the Critics Choice Best Actress in a Film included Cate, Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All At Once), Viola Davis (The Woman King), Danielle Deadwyler (Till), Margot Robbie (Babylon), and Michelle Williams (The Fabelmans). While carrying a linen ensemble from the Haus of Parachute Sheets, Cate accepted her trophy from presenter Ben Stiller and first thanked Julia Roberts for awarding her with a a lot better trophy (a bottle of mouthwash) earlier within the night time and known as her Critics Choice award “arbitrary” contemplating all the nice performances from actresses in 2022. And after paying tribute to Tár’s author/director Todd Field, she introduced everybody to her anti-awards present TED Talk by shitting on televised awards reveals. Cate received on the Golden Globes final week, however she didn’t present up, so she wasn’t in a position to give her anti-awards present speech then. Or perhaps she simply did it on the Critics Choice Awards as a result of they compelled her to slum it by showing on The CW! What a TV snob!

“I can’t believe I’m up here. This is ridiculous! I’m so old! Thank you, and thank you to all my fellow nominees. Look, I would love it if we would just change this whole fucking structure. It’s like, what is this patriarchal pyramid where someone stands up here? Why don’t we just say there was a whole raft of female performances that are in concert and in dialogue with one another? And stop the televised horse race of it all? Can I tell you, every single woman, whether television, film, advertising, tampon commercials, whatever, you’re all out doing amazing work that is inspiring me continually. So thank you, I share this with you all.”

Deadline says that Cate added backstage that she believes there should be “a different way of celebrating performances.

Some praised certainly one of this season’s most-awarded race horses for preserving it actual, whereas others labeled Cate as Cate the Awards Show Ingrate and awarded her with the trophy for the Best Eye Roll-Inducing Acceptance Speech. Maybe Cate sharted on awards reveals to attempt to give Michelle Yeoh an higher hand within the Best Actress Oscar race? I don’t know, however I do know that Cate missed a possibility to honor famous crown-sharer Cady Heron from Mean Girls by breaking off items of her Critics Choice Award and tossing them in any respect the actresses within the viewers. Here’s Cate’s speech:

Other winners within the movie classes included Everything Everywhere All At Once (Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Supporting Actor for Ke Huy Quan), Angela Bassett (Best Supporting Actress for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever), RRR (Best Foreign Language Film), Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (Best Comedy and Best Acting Ensemble), and Brendan Fraser for his efficiency in The Whale. Brendan beat out Austin Butler (Elvis), Tom Cruise (Top Gun: Maverick), Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin), Paul Mescal (Aftersun), and Bill Nighy (Living). Brendan introduced the uncooked emotion and cried throughout his speech, thanking the critics for waking as much as him and The Whale’s Darren Aronofsky for casting him. Brendan ended his speech with some optimistic phrases for anybody who’s in a foul place:

“If you, like a guy like Charlie, who I played in this movie, in any way struggle with obesity or you just feel like you’re in a dark sea. I want you to know that if you too can have the strength to just get to your feet and go to the light, good things will happen. Thank you. Goodnight.”

Brendan was performed off by the band, however that play-off music sounded extra like a fantastically poignant soundtrack to the top his speech:

Over on the TV facet, winners included The Dropout (Best Limited Series and Best Actress in a Limited Series for Amanda Seyfried), Better Call Saul (Best Drama Series, Bob Odenkirk for Best Actor in a Drama Series, Giancarlo Esposito for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series), Weird: The Al Yankovic Story (Best Made For TV Movie and Best Actor in a Made For TV Movie for Daniel Radcliffe), Jennifer Coolidge (Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for The White Lotus), Jean Smart (Best Actress in a Comedy Series for Hacks), Jeremy White (Best Actor in a Comedy Series for The Bear), Niecy Nash-Betts (Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series for that Dahmer shit), Paul Walter Hauser (Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series for Black Bird), and Zendaya (Best Actress in a Drama Series for Euphoria). Abbott Elementary picked up the award for Best Comedy Series, and certainly one of its stars, Sheryl Lee Ralph, received Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. And as she did finally 12 months’s Emmys, Sheryl Lee Ralph gave one other magnificent speech worthy of The Magnificient Speeches Hall of Fame. After mentioning that the nice Sidney Poitier gave her phrases of encouragement when she felt like there was no place for her within the business, she thanked Abbott Elementary’s creator Quinta Brunson earlier than summoning us to get nearer to the display screen. Sheryl Lee Ralph then introduced the spirits of Stuart Smalley and RuPaul along with slightly self-love sermon:

“People don’t have to like you. People don’t have to love you. They don’t even have to respect you. But when you look in the mirror, you better love what you see. YOU better love what you see. Thank you to the critics! Thank you!”

And right here’s that second:

Maybe Cate Blanchett is on to one thing. Maybe we should always eliminate awards reveals, and solely so we will change them with three hours of Sheryl Lee Ralph delivering pep talks for the ages!
