Oscar nominee Cate Blanchett gets butterflies in her stomach before attending the Academy Awards.

The Blue Jasmine star told OK! Magazine, “A lot of effort goes into effortlessness of walking up that marathon red carpet. I wake up with butterflies in my stomach. You never know the outcome. It has been an extraordinary year in films, so to be at the banquet is a privilege.”

Blanchett’s previous Oscar glory came from 2004’s The Aviator for which she took home the Best Supporting Actress statuette. She is nominated in the Best Actress category at today’s ceremony for her work in Blue Jasmine.
