Cate Blanchett  is on a winning streak. She was awarded outstanding performer of the year for her work in Blue Jasmine at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in California on Saturday. This honor comes after three straight big awards in a row , winning at the Golden Globes, Critics' Choice Awards, and SAG Awards. Her next exciting stop will be the Oscars in March, where she's up for best actress yet again. At the SBFF, friend and upcoming costar Rooney Mara presented Cate with her award . The two are set to start work on Carol soon, a film set in 1950s New York in which a department store clerk who dreams of a better life (Rooney) falls for an older, married woman (Cate).
However, Cate's weekend wasn't all positive. When asked about Woody Allen's daughter Dylan Farrow's open letter  about her alleged abuse, she responded , "I mean, it's obviously been a long and painful situation for the family, and I hope they find some sort of resolution and peace."
