Cate Blanchett may be the awards season darling right now (she's practically oblierated all the Best Actress hopefuls with her Blue Jasmine performance), but it's her off-screen show(wo)manship that deserves an even bigger applause.

Walking the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAGs), the actress was stopped by the E! camera crew in her floor-length Givenchy gown.

And just as the cameraman does the usual slow and uncomfortable sweeping shot of Cate's outfit from her feet up, that's when the magic happened.

Instead of ignoring the objectifying gaze of the camera, Blanchett interupts the interview to ask the crew "Do you do that to guys?"

That's right, E! Where's that panorama shot of Bradley Cooper's butt on the red carpet? Or the disturbingly detailed commentary on Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul's pins in tuxedo pants? Oh that would be creepy, no?

In the words of Barney Stinson, THE HIGHEST OF FIVE to you, Miss Blanchett!

Is it ever OK to complain about other people's kids?

Yes, children should be seen and not heard.

No, let kids be kids and let off steam.

It depends on the situation.
