I really don't know why people get so lathered up over Kate Beckinsale. To me, she's the poor man's Anna Friel.

Now Cate Blanchett. There's a real woman!

I'm still mulling it over... the powerhouses in that bunch for me would be Beckinsale (based on looks), Winslet (combination of looks, talent, and willingness to bare it all), and Cate Blanchett (who, I've probably said this elsewhere, I wouldn't mind watching sipping on a coffee for two hours straight... her presence is incredible, plus there's something very appealing about her appearance).

Just as I finger floated over Kate Winslet's name, it dawned on me: the rightful victor of this contest should be none other than Cate Blanchett!!

Here's why:

One notable omission (out of respect, damn it, and also to give the other ladies a fair shot) is of course Katharine Hepburn.

Well, as you will recall, Cate Blanchett played Katharine Hepburn in Scorsese's The Aviator, and thus Cate Blanchett becomes:

Cate to the power of Kate: The one (C/K)ate to rule them all!!

Kate Beckinsale is a powerhouse, but I find Kate Bosworth to be extremely cute as well.

But i think Beckinsale has to win.

If I only could, I'd make a deal with God.

Cate Blanchett is the heir to Helen Mirren's position as woman for whom I'd crawl through jagged rocks for the pleasure of kneeling at her feet.

Kate Hepburn would have been my choice, so Cate Blanchett FTW more than ever.

If you say so. I actually really like Beckinsale in Laurel Canyon. She's not completely hopeless, just fucking bland in most things she's in. Even running around in skintight leather getups...bland.

Although I do remember her saying she'd rather eat a vagina than sushi...so uhh...that's cool I guess.

When I say powerhouse I mean: sexy beast.

She is not only insanely hot, but incredibly awesome. Seeing her in person at Comic Con, she came off as such a kick-ass chick. So she wins. Hands down.

Cate Blanchett sneers down at you from on high for even CONSIDERING voting for anyone else. Winslet's a fine actor and awful fun to look at, but overall, she doesn't even come close.

I know I stand alone here but I've never been very convinced by Cate, lovely though she is. In things like Babel and Notes on a Scandal, she hits every look and line just the right way...the lip quivers, the voice wavers, the eyes water...but that's just the thing. It always came off as TOO finely controlled. In a word- too actor-y.

Doesn't even approach the kind of work Winslet did in Little Children, in my most humble opinion.

However, Kate Bosworth and Kate Hudson both come a close second, purely on the basis because I want to play with them in a soapy bath.
