Carol was nominated in five categories, including Best Female Lead (Blanchett), and won the award for Best Cinematography. In spite of landing six Oscar nominations, Todd Haynes’ lesbian blockbuster failed to pull in a single gong at the Academy Awards yesterday.
Set in 1950s New York, two women from very different backgrounds find themselves in the throes of love. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) threatens her competence as a mother when Carol’s involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) comes to light. As Carol leaves the comfort of home to travel with Therese, an internal journey of self-discovery coincides with her new sense of space.
What a shame! I for one really thought Carol would get more Oscars!!

Carol star Cate Blanchett is reported to have cried with laughter when she saw this hilarious spoof, which was screened at Film Independent’s Spirit Awards shindig in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Starring Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon, along with Wanda Sykes, Jane Lynch and Kumail Nanjiani, the video is cut with the restaurant scene in which wealthy housewife Carol takes gauche shop girl Therese (Rooney Mara) to lunch as a reward for returning her lost glove.
