LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Australian Cate Blanchett won the best actress Oscar on Sunday for her role as a socialite who suffers a breakdown in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine.

The win is Blanchett's second Academy Award. The 44-year-old was favored to win this year's prize after picking up Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Bafta awards earlier this year.
