In 2005, Cate Blanchett won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator. After collecting her statuette, Cate made her way backstage to meet the press, among them a rather dim reporter. Roger Ebert later described the scene:"Working press like Richard and I are typing on our computers but they have other people who ask stupid questions -- that's their function in life. So he said, 'Miss Blanchet, do you think this will have a good effect on your career?' And she said, [in her English accent] 'Absolutely, you asshole!'"
