Another Win for Cate?

 Cate Blanchett is in the running for the 'best actress' award for her portrayal of Lotte in Botho Strauss’ Big & Small at the Barbican.

The Elizabeth star has been nominated for the London Evening Standard’s Natasha Richardson award in what critics called her “dazzlingly uninhibited” performance.
The Oscar winning actress also trod the boards in New York last summer in Uncle Vanya and has been the director of Sydney Theatre Company since 2008, relinquishing the post this year and handing over to her husband Andrew Upton.
 She will battle it out against Eileen Atkins for All That Fall, Laurie Metcalf for Long Day’s Journey Into Night, and Hattie Morahan for A Doll’s House.
