Our Favorite Faces Of Cate Blanchett
Guess whose birthday it was yesterday? Yes, Cate Blanchett turned 48, and as the trailer for Thor: Ragnarok showed last month, she still easily commands the screen and has no trouble kicking ass while doing so.

In short: she rules. Well, many of her characters do at least; her regal visage is often used for portraying royalty, or otherworldly beauty. That doesn't mean she is bad at playing slightly more normal characters though, as she has proven often enough to be a great all-round actress.

So tell us: what's your favorite performance by her? Was it a drama, a glamorous part, or was she a fantasy heroine? Chime in, in the comments below!

Elizabeth is the easy answer, but I liked how nasty she was in Hanna. Cookie cutter, yes, but I liked the character and performance nonetheless.

Sadly, I've yet to see Carol.

HANNA -> her crocodile smile in that one is a keeper.

Me, I'm immensely fond of her uncredited cameo in HOT FUZZ. The way she acts with just her eyes in that scene is amazing.

Fun extra: on HOT FUZZ' commentary track, Edgar Wright laments about how on her visit to the set, everybody was having fun fawning over her, while he, being the director, hadn't got the time to do the same.
