Film honour for Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett is to be honoured for her performance in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine.

The Oscar-wining actress will be presented with the Santa Barbara International Film Festival's (SBIFF) 2014 award for the Outstanding Performer Of The Year.

Cate, who plays a manic depressive New York socialite in the film, will be given the gong in February.

SBIFF executive director Roger Durling said: "In her first collaboration with master director Woody Allen, Blanchett knocks it out of the park in the best performance of her already illustrious career.

"We're so grateful to be able to celebrate her achievement."

The festival runs from January 30 to February 9, 2014.
