Cate Blanchett with no "e" at the end
Okay, this poor lady won an Oscar and people are still spelling her name wrong.

Okay. I'm spelling her name wrong.

300 lashes with a wet noodle for consistently adding an "e" to the end of talented Cate Blanchett's name.

I have gone back and corrected the three or four reviews on this blog of movies she appeared in. I did get the spelling right with her appearance in Thor: Ragnarok (review to be posted next week).

Feel free to let me know when and if I make a mistake. Thank you! 

P.S. At least I didn't spell her name "Kate."

Famous actors whose names have been misspelled -- though not by me -- include Margaret Sullavan (often misspelled as "Sullivan with an "i") and Katharine Hepburn (occasionally misspelled as Katherine with an "e'").

Let's not even get into today's actors have have very weird names with unbelievable spellings!

Duly noted!
And don't forget Liza with a Z, not Lisa with an S! :-)

Right! Ms. Minelli got a lot of mileage spoofing that with a song she did years ago.
