Australian actress. She has received critical acclaim and many accolades, including two Academy Awards, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, and three British Academy Awards. Blanchett has been awarded the Centenary Medal for Service to Australian Society by the Australian government. She was appointed Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government in 2012. In 2014, she was presented with a Doctor of Letters by Macquarie University in recognition of her extraordinary contribution to the arts, philanthropy and the community, her third honorary degree from major Australian institutions.

The middle child of a Texan dad stationed in the Navy (who died when she was ten) and an Australian mom, she discovered drama in her Melbourne private high school. In the Sydney theater company, she stood out as Best New Actress in 1992. Blanchett gave birth to a boy named Roman Robert on April 23, 2004 in London. The actress and her husband, screenwriter Andrew Lipton, also have a two-year-old son, Dashiell John, born in December 2001 in London. Their third son, Ignatius Martin, was born 13 April 2008 in Sydney.

On February 27, 2005, she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Katharine Hepburn in "The Aviator," a biopic about Howard Hughes.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her birth notice and two statements from her to speculate an approximate time of birth. The birth notice gives the date and place: "BLANCHETT (Gamble)--To June and Bob--a daughter (Catherine Elise), at Jessie McPherson, on May 14th. Both well" (The Age [Melbourne], 15 May 1969, p. 17). Blanchett has stated, "I like the heroines. I'm a bull. I'm a Taurus. I think I've got something tragic like Taurus moon, Taurus sun, Taurus rising. I'm a complete bull" ("I won't do any nude scenes" by Clare Goldwin, Mirror, 26 Nov. 2003, p. 46.). She has also reportedly stated, "Apparently, I’m Taurus moon, Taurus sun and Taurus Rising. That’s pretty Taurus, eh? Which explains a lot, doesn’t it?" (20/2/2014: [1]). It is not possible for her to have Taurus rising and Taurus Moon. The birth announcement appeared the day after her birth which usually indicates a time of birth early in the day. The moon did not move into Taurus until about 5:30pm and it is unlikely that the news of her birth would have been phoned through to the newspaper that late in the day. A speculative time of 6:40 a.m. puts mid Taurus (15 degrees) on the Ascendant which seems the best approximation considering the info given. Scholfield emailed a family member on 7 April 2001 requesting her time of birth but did not receive a reply.
