In a crackling profile in the new issue of GQ, Cate Blanchett gets candid (and increasingly tipsy) with writer Zach Baron. The portion of their conversation that focuses on gender in the film industry—a topic Blanchett is ready to move beyond—is particularly worth reading:

According to /bent, MoMA made this homage to Tilda Swinton back in November, when they honored her during a gala. Let's just use it as an excuse to be entranced by her acting and stunned by her range. Also, if you have not seen Orlando, remedy that with a quickness.
Award-nominated actors, you might as well give up telling self-deprecating jokes in the mirror and put down the quote books you're mining for award speech inspiration; you're never going to top the speech Emma Thompson gave at last night's National Board of Review Gala, or the bomb-ass intro Meryl Streep gave for her.…
12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o, who made a documentary about albinism in Kenya: [People with albinism] "are the one group of people that unify all races. Having come to the United States — it was the first time that I really had to consider myself as being black. To learn what my race meant. Because race is…
Amani Starnes is a working actress who happens to be racially ambiguous. Hollywood is basically the Baskin-Robbins of racism (so! many! flavors!).

Think carefully: When's the last time you saw a Hollywood flick with an Asian actor in the lede role? Tough one.

Chuck Mee is all about fairness. The legendary American playwright believes there's no such thing as an original play, and invites visitors to his website to "remix" his work. He also has some pretty visionary ideas about casting his shows. He writes:
Jodie Foster starred in her first commercial at the age of 3. At 13, she played a hooker in Taxi Driver and got an Oscar nod.

Here's Tim Tebow simultaneously ruining and improving a commercial for TiVo. This guy, am I right?? I just don't get how one little white dude can get so much press for being mediocre at a sport. Oh wait, that's just called "the news", isn't it? And also, "history".
