Cate Blanchett had an easy time picking her dress for tomorrow's Golden Globes.

The Blue Jasmine star says it only took about "a minute and a half" to decide what to wear.

"It's pretty," the 44-year-old Oscar winner told me at BAFTA's pre-Golden Globes Tea Party at the Four Seasons hotel today. "When else do you get to be a debutante?...When else do get to do that? It's a fantastic thing."

But, she admits, she does get red carpet jitters.

"It could be nerve wracking having that many pictures taken of like your nasal hair," Blanchett cracked. "But look, in the end, it's a celebration of performances in film and television and that's what you have to remind yourself."

The gorgeous thesp went on to joke that she may "recycle" the red Michael Kors dress she wore to the tea party for tomorrow's big show.

Not that she wouldn't still look stunning a second time around.

Blanchett is nominated for her work in director Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine for her role as a New York City socialite who has a mental breakdown after her husband is sent to prison for white-collar crimes. Sally Hawkins, also a nominee, plays her working class sister.
