After winning Best Actress for her work in Blue Jasmine, Blanchett took the stage to start giving her thanks. However, she was only onstage for a few moments when the teleprompter let her know that didn't have much time left.
"I've been away from the film industry for a long time making theater...29 seconds?! Matthew McConaughey spoke about Neptune and I think I can have five seconds!" she huffed.
Damn right, Cate! If Matthew can take the time to talk about a Russian guy who built a boat, you can take the time to talk about coming back to movies. We'll definitely allow it.
The room erupted in laughter at her comment, and though the camera didn't pan to McConaughey, we assume he found her little outburst funny as well.
But Blanchett's reign of awesome behavior was not over yet. She was just getting started.
"For those who voted for me, I thank you," she said. "And for those who didn't, better luck next year."
And then Cate got a little handsy with her Actor trophy. How can we put this delicately? Hmm, we can't. She stroked it.
Finally, she gave her onscreen sister Sally Hawkins a little shout-out that no one will soon forget.
"Sally, I'm very lonely up here without you. This is half yours. The penis part," she offered.
