Does Cate Blanchett deserve her Oscar nomination as the frontrunner favorite for her performance in the leading role of Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine”? Most certainly. Does Sally Hawkins deserve her long shot nomination for Best Supporting Actress? I think so. Does Wood Allen deserve another Original Screenplay nomination? I’m not so sure. Certainly the Blanchett character is very well written. So, perhaps the problem lies in Allen’s direction, but something about this movie left me cold.
