Cate Blanchett weighs in on awards season, parenting and why she loves surprises

Cate Blanchett is logging lots of travel time these days. Luckily, she's been able to catch a lift from New Orleans to Los Angeles on Brad Pitt's plane.

The "Babel" co-stars are working together in the Big Easy on "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," and both are making frequent trips to L.A. as Hollywood's awards season ramps up.

But the sprawling, international drama, "Babel," which won the Golden Globe for best motion picture drama, isn't the only film bringing Blanchett back to Southern California. She also stars in "Notes on a Scandal," which earned Judi Dench a best-actress Golden Globe and garnered Blanchett a supporting-actress nod. "Notes" focuses on the relationship between two teachers, one of whom is having an affair with student, reports AP.

Both will find out Tuesday morning if they also earned Oscar nominations.

After putting her two sons, ages 5 and 2 1/2, to bed, Blanchett, 37, spoke by phone with The Associated Press Sunday about dealing with the pressures of awards season, what she looks for in a role and the next challenge on her horizon.
