BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: Cate Blanchett entered the history books when she won the Best Actress accolade at this year’s Golden Globes for her impeccable performance in Todd Field’s ‘TAR’. The movie saw her playing the role of a renowned musician Lydia Tar who is days away from recording the symphony that will take her career to a whole new level. However, things turn upside down when people start to conspire against her and the only emotional support she gets is from her adopted daughter, Petra. The movie received universal acclaim and Blanchett was praised for her acting.

With her best actress in a drama category win, the Oscar-winning actress broke a record at the 80th annual Golden Globe awards and became the joint-most-awarded actress in the category with three wins. Only three female actors have been able to win three best actress trophies in the history of the prestigious event, including Meryl Streep, Jane Fonda, and Ingrid Bergman. However, all the aforementioned names (except Blanchett) won two consecutive trophies.

Previously, the actress won the Best Actress trophies for ‘Blue Jasmine’ and ‘Elizabeth’. Blanchett didn’t attend the ceremony as presenter Henry Golding announced that she was busy shooting her next project in the UK. Although the actress faced stiff competition in the category, she was considered to be the frontrunner to win the trophy at this year’s ceremony. She was nominated alongside Olivia Colman (‘Empire of Light’), Viola Davis (‘The Woman King’), Ana de Armas (‘Blonde’), and Michelle Williams (‘The Fabelmans’).

Social media went berserk when Blanchett won the award and noted that her performance was absolutely perfect. One of the fans said, “Congratulations Blanchett! you are the best! So perfect.” Another social media user tweeted, “Congrats. Cate takes our breath away again. She is perfection in this role, as always.” Another fan noted, “Simply the most brilliant film of the year. No contest.” Another fan tweeted, “Well deserved queen.” Another social media user wrote, “4x golden globes acting winner Cate Blanchett I KNOW THAT'S RIGHT!”
