LONDON (AP) — Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett will receive a major career honor at this year's London Film festival, where two of her latest films are screening.

The Australian actress will be presented with the British Film Institute Fellowship at an Oct. 17 ceremony. BFI chairman Greg Dyke said Thursday that Blanchett was "a compelling and brave actress whose mesmerizing screen presence has captivated audiences since her earliest roles."

Blanchett has won Oscars for "The Aviator" and "Blue Jasmine."

She'll appear at the London festival in Todd Haynes' 1950s lesbian romance "Carol," as well as in James Vanderbilt's "Truth," which stars Blanchett as TV news producer Mary Mapes, who was fired over a story about former U.S. President George W. Bush's military service.

The London Film Festival runs Oct. 7-18.
