Cate Blanchett Dedicates BAFTA to Late Philip Seymour Hoffman

Cate Blanchett smiles at all of her fans as she lands at the airport on Tuesday (February 18) in Sydney, Australia.

The 44-year-old Blue Jasmine actress won a prestigious BAFTA over the weekend for her work in the film.

“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,” Cate said in her acceptance speech.

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

    Better choice to credit Seymour Hoffman than a pedophile. Cate, you are an enabler by working with Woody Allen. If the Academy has any sense of morals, they will not give you a statue.

  • Cate

    So happy for Cate winning the BAFTA too.. Very fitting to dedicate to her late and great friend.

  • Cutie

    I mostly like Cate, but there are moments when she is just so…magnanimous and high and mighty. It’s quite annoying.

  • Caroline

    I am surprised she is still smiling. Maybe she just got news that Polanski’s giving her a job in his next movie. Way to go Cate!

    cate has the right to dedicate her award to her friend of 15 yrs.
    if you want to point out enablers, be prepare to point out more than half of Hollywood, specially the suits, those are the ones with the power and the real enablers who finance woody’s films. Hollywood gave an standing ovation to a convicted pedophile, so don’t expect much. Cate has no power in HW, specially in these kind of situations; the best she can do rn is to detach herself from Allen completely. she is just a actRESS to HW that lives in Sydney mostly doing theatre, what do you expect her to do?
    People should stop acting like she has any responsibility in this issue.

  • Guest

    Ignore the pathetic trolls. Those are individuals who hate everything/everyone in Hollywood. The only reason gracious Cate is their target now is because her name was mentioned in a controversial article. Don’t bother with them.

  • Sophia

    Cate Blanchett is one of the very few real actors out ther right now, she has never done anything to receive those attacks, she just took a JOB that SHE WANTED. So stop this nonsense.

  • Claire

    ugh stop with the “Allen alegations”, she has NOTHING to do with it. #6 Why would she should detach from Allen?? you don’t know anything about their relation, what if they are good friends? She’s the only one who knows what’s best for herself.
