At the 86th Academy Awards tonight, Cate Blanchett won Best Actress for her role in the Woody Allen film Blue Jasmine. Upon winning, she did a brief, almost muted shout out to Allen.

The controversy surrounding Allen may not be on the front page of every site and paper right now, but it’s still at the forefront of a great deal of Hollywood and non-Hollywood folks’ minds. After Dylan Farrow publicly discussed Allen allegedly sexually assaulting her at the age of 7 in an op-ed for the New York Times, thousands have flocked to support her–including many, many famous people. Farrow, in fact, called out people like Blanchett and Alec Baldwin for continuing to work with Allen despite his behavior which at best is questionable, at worst is criminal. As one might have expected, Twitter was very displeased.












Honestly, I’m a little bummed that Cate’s speech will be overshadowed by the negativity surrounding Woody Allen, but I desperately agree with the tweets above wishing she had simply snubbed him.
