Missing that, they can’t help but miss Allen’s update:

While Blanchett played Jasmine French, she displayed an entire nation — an America no longer innocent, but now steeped in the habit of looking the other way.

Too bad that an earthquake this week is more likely than the other nominations “Blue Jasmine” should gain: Best Director, Best Screenplay, and, yes, Best Film.
