Cate Blanchett Dedicated Her BAFTA Award To Philip Seymour Hoffman


I think Hollywood is still reeling from the sudden and untimely death of Hoffman, as he obviously had many friends, colleagues and fans in the industry. Cate Blanchett was a friend, and when she won her award for Best Actress yesterday at the BAFTAs she took the opportunity to honor her friend.

“I would like to dedicate this to an actor who has been a continual, profound touchstone for me, a monumental presence who is now so sadly in absence: the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman,” the Blue Jasmine star, 44, began her speech.

“Phil, your monumental talent, your unflinching quest for truth both in art and in life will be missed by so many people,” she added. “You raised the bar continually. Phil, buddy, this is for you, you bastard. Hope you’re proud.”

Aside from me feeling about Cate working with the bastard, Woody Allen, I love her and I think it was a sweet tribute.
