Golden Icon Award: Cate Blanchett

Guests of Honour

One face, many iconic roles and a spectrum of convincing character studies that is as broad as it is subtle: The Australian Cate Blanchett’s ability to transform is legendary.

She was already making waves in the Australian theatre scene not long after graduating from the National Institute of Dramatic Arts. Shortly after giving her film debut in the 1997 war drama PARADISE ROAD, Blanchett went on to celebrate her international breakthrough after landing the Oscar-nominated title role in ELIZABETH (1998). Blanchett expanded her repertoire by playing Elbin Galadriel in the epic fantasy saga THE LORD OF THE RINGS (2001-2003), and attracted international attention for her performances in AVIATOR (2004) and BABEL (2006). Her most memorable roles include her interpretation of Bob Dylan in I’M NOT THERE (2007), her Academy Award-winning title role in Woody Allen’s BLUE JASMINE (2013) and her performance alongside Rooney Mara in CAROL (2015).

Cate Blanchett brings her most recent production, Richard Linklater’s WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE (2019), to Zurich. She will collect the ZFF’s Golden Eye at the Award Night.
