Cate Blanchett wins best actress award at Venice Film Festival

Cate Blanchett won the Best Actress award at the Venice Film Festival, on Saturday, September 10, for her performance in ‘Tar’. She played the role of a renowned, hard-driving lesbian conductor in the movie.

Blanchett, 53, considered one of the greatest actresses of her generation, won the same award at the festival in 2007 for her performance as Bob Dylan.

The best actor award was given to Ireland’s Colin Farrell for his part in the tragi-comedy ‘The Banshee Of Inisherin’ while ‘All the Beauty and the Bloodshed’, a documentary about US photographer Nan Goldin and her fight against the wealthy Sackler family, won the top Golden Lion award at the festival.
