New York: Cate Blanchett recently downplayed her Oscar frontrunner status at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

The ` Blue Jasmine` star told the New York Post that the status was lovely, but it would be an act of hubris to even think about it.

The blonde beauty was also toasted at the New York Film Festival by Alec Baldwin .
