Cate Blanchett dedicated her BAFTA Award to Philip Seymour Hoffman on Sunday.

During her acceptance speech for Best Actress, Blanchett said her Talented Mr. Ripley co-star was a “continual, profound touchstone for me, a monumental presence who is now so sadly in absence.”

“Phil, you’re monumental talent, your generosity and your unflinching quest for truth — both in art and in life — will be missed my so many people,” said the movie star.

As Gossip Cop reported, Blanchett was one of the many celebrity mourners at Hoffman’s funeral last week.
