Cate's on her way
Who will be the Best Actress. Well, the experts -- and everyone else for that matter -- say it's Cate Blanchett's, no question. Even etalk's executive producer, Morley Nirenberg, the most die-hard Meryl Streep superfan of all time, concedes that Cate's the one this year. And if she isn't, it'll probably be one of the biggest, biggest Oscar upsets of all time.
Hyperbole? Come on. It's Oscar weekend. Everything is hyperbole.
So here's Cate making her way from Australia over to LA with husband Andrew Upton. She'd returned home for a week or so in between award season events. And I love this. Spend as little time in LA as possible. By the way, it's a torrential downpour here in LA right now. I'm writing this from the red carpet where we're shooting etalk and the wind and the water is wreaking havoc, especially since no one here is used to driving in it. They're saying it could be like this on Sunday. That could f-ck up a lot of hair and shoes. Maybe there'll be an Oscar miracle.
Etalk's Ultimate Oscar Guide airs tomorrow, March 1 from 7pm - 8pm on CTV. We make our predictions and I get in a shot at Jonah Hill, 2x Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange!
