WATCH: OMG! Cate Blanchett was the original Tim Tam girl

Before she was an Oscar nominee, Cate Blanchett was the leading lady… in a '90s Tim Tam commercial. A far cry from couture and multimillion-dollar film contracts, right?!

Check out Cate and her magical lamp in the cringe-worthy commercial we've dug up, above!

We'll be seeing a much more sophisticated Blanchett on the Oscars red carpet today, nominated for Best Actress for her role in Blue Jasmine… which has already seen her bag more than 20 trophies, including a Golden Globe, A Screen Actors Guild, a BAFTA and an AACTA.

Will she be adding an Oscar to that lengthy list?
