Movie Fact #796 – March 20th, 2015:

Actress Cate Blanchett became the first female actor to receive another Academy Award nomination for the reprisal of the same role when she played historical figure Elizabeth I of England in both 1998’s “Elizabeth” and it’s 2007 sequel “Elizabeth: The Golden Age”.

It’s something when someone gets nominated for multiple awards. Blanchett has two Oscar WINS with a Best Supporting Actress win for 2005’s “The Aviator” as American icon Katharine Hepburn as well as a Best Actress win for 2014’s “Blue Jasmine” for playing the lead character Jeanette “Jasmine” Francis. But, on top of that, she found a way to distinguish a single character TWICE. That’s more than something. That’s as close as you get to prestige.
