I have liked some of her work and have nothing bad to say about her, but if she is really interested in retiring rather than, say, taking a long break or being more selective and infrequent in taking on roles, why not channel any frustrations with patriarchy into taking a hand on the producer end of things?

She explained to the Associated Press that her biggest source of research was documentaries on figures like Carlos Kleiber or Herbert von Karajan. These offered her intimate glimpses into the lives and psyches of conductors, which proved very useful in mapping out the worldview of Lydia Tár.

The people claiming she needs to step aside to allow Yeoh to win are delusional. That move would be incredibly condescending, and cheapen the value of the award itself.

R92 Have you seen the film? This is NOT a performance she’s done a million times. Whereas with DDL he was serious, Blanchett probably just wants maybe some time to herself and some rest after her next projects, then she will come back, if she ever stops working at all. Tilda Swinton has said she wants to retire but hasn’t. Actors get bored after awhile when they have time off, then they get back to it.

Blanchett has an ego, like all multiple Oscar winners, and many in the acting industry. She can’t resist the thought of joining the three Oscar winner club. That’s why I expect to see a turbo charged campaign with her promoting Tar. She knocks Yeoh off the screen in terms of acting, and what she brings to this role.
