Cate Blanchett, Oscars

Blue Jasmine star Cate Blanchett served up a little bit of blue language on Sunday night.

After walking away with the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in the Woody Allen flick, the 44-year-old thesp dropped an F-bomb that was caught live on CNN while she was fielding questions from the press backstage.

"I wanted to ask you about the fact that you're the first Australian to ever win [Best Actress]," said a reporter, before Blanchett playfully cut in with, "And don't you f--king forget it!"

Later, Blanchett also kinda, sorta explained the cryptic comment she made to Julia Roberts during her acceptance speech when she said, "Julia, hashtag suck it."

"It happened in the bar with Ms. Roberts," she coyly remarked backstage. "And that's all I'm prepared to say."

In other words, the August: Osage County star probably knew what Blanchett meant. (Even if we still really don't.)

Meanwhile, Blanchett's big win means she will now have two golden boys on her mantle, having picked up the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2005 for channeling Katharine Hepburn in Martin Scorsese's The Aviator.
