Cate Blanchett Was “a Couple Sheets to the Wind” While Giving Her Golden Globes Acceptance Speech

Cate Blanchett, Golden Globes 2014, Winner Cate Blanchett did admit she had a “few vodkas under her belt” during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes. But the Blue Jasmine star is revealing a bit more about her evening leading up to her winning moment.

“Unfortunately my category came up rather late in the evening so I was a couple of sheets to the wind,” the Aussie actress told The Telegraph with a laugh. “Once your name is read out it’s a high like no other so I can’t remember a lot. I hope I didn’t do too many things I’ll regret.”

This makes sense because this is the Golden Globes, the film-and-TV extravaganza where celebs are encouraged to drink (and in some cases can’t even be bothered to leave their liquor behind when they take the stage).

As for the award, the blond beauty dished “the Globe is in the hotel room and my sons made a little shrine for it with all the flowers that I have been receiving for the past week that are now dead.”

Blanchett is on a winning streak this awards season and raking up the accolades for her role in Woody Allen’s comedy-drama.

During her SAG Awards acceptance speech, Blanchett took the stage to start giving her thanks. However, she was only onstage for a few moments when the teleprompter let her know that didn’t have much time left.
