"I'm not there."
That's what Cate Blanchett might be saying to Harvey Weinstein as they study the nominee list for the oscars in a couple months IF this new "lead" thing is true. My first impression is that this move smacks of greed and hubris - I mean, she's one of five Dylans and is onscreen for what, 25% of the film, at most? - but I suppose there have been lead nominees with less screentime, and there are strategic advantages to this, including box office concerns and other factors. So I'll withhold judgment, at least until I see the film. But in my gut, I just DON'T like this idea. Not at all.
