Cate to reign on

IT was the film that made Hollywood pay attention to Cate Blanchett and now, six years later, director Shekhar Kapur is working on a sequel to his hit Elizabeth.

Blanchett is expected to take the throne again and star in the epic - based on Queen Elizabeth I - which has the working title of Golden Age.


"It is about the battle between her life as a monarch and her personal life," Kapur said from Singapore. "It ends in the destruction of the Spanish Armada on the larger level."

The Indian-born Kapur said the script, which Michael Hirst is working on, would be ready in six months.

"And then it depends on Cate's schedule and my schedule as to when we start shooting." Kapur has a habit of casting Australian actors as leads in his films. Following Elizabeth, which also starred Geoffrey Rush, he directed Four Feathers, with Heath Ledger in the lead.

Yup, love Cate... love Elizabeth I (not quite in the same way), and it should be a good film if it happens.

Did the Oscar that year go to Gwyneth Paltrow for Shakespeare in Love (I may be hideously wrong here)? If so, she definitely WAS robbed, because that film was an ensemble piece if ever I saw one and her performance was nothing.

If it was some other poor actress she robbed and not Cate then I apologise for my misinformation. :cool:

For you and everyone else, it was Gwyneth. Not Helen Hunt. You put up a brilliant argument of why Gwyneth shouldn't have won. Shakespeare in Love was more an ensemble piece than anything. Gwyneth was good, don't mistake that, which is why I never say she robbed Cate, but I think I would've voted for Cate too.

What can you say, the Academy went ga ga over Shakespeare in Love that year. I mean everyone thought Saving Private Ryan would win Best Picture and SiL dethroned it. Imagine, an Elizabethan romantic comedy period piece over a realistic WWII drama. Yep, they loved for sure. I did too.

Gwyneth deserved the Oscar over Cate IMHO. I think much more highly of Cate as an actress but I didn't think Elizabeth was as great a film as everybody made out at the time and neither was her performance.

Still, I look forward to Golden Age :lick:.

Gwyneth was good in SiL but Cate was phenomenal in Elizabeth. I absolutely love Cate Blanchett and I am looking forward to seeing Golden Age.

I voted for Gwyneth Paltrow, I think she is a lovely dame, but I was torn. If I had known she would go on to name a child "Apple," that could have swung me the other way.

I think Gwyneth is cool, and does a MEAN English accent, but it was kind of sucky that she won it that year imo.

I'm sure there's a whole thread in "We Wuz Robbed @ The Oscars" candidates somewhere. Like, will Julianne Moore EVER win one? :rolleyes:

I was robbed 4 times in a row, but I finally won. I deserved to win each and every time I was nominated, too.

Neither Blanchett nor Paltrow deserved the Oscar in 1999. The best actress, IMO, was Fernanda Montenegro for "Central Station" but I guess it was a victory in itself for her just being nominated. It is so rare for an actress in a foreign-language movie to be nominated for an Oscar...

Between Paltrow & Blanchett though, I would have gone with Gwyneth as well. Blanchett was ok but I thought Elizabeth sucked :baby:
