Cate Blanchett wins Bafta for Best Actress in Blue Jasmine

At last night’s star studded Baftas in London’s Picadilly, Blanchett won the Bafta for best actress, for her role in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine.


The Australian actor dedicated her speech to Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died on 2 February, calling him a “monumental presence” as she collected the award, wearing an eye-catching Chopard pendant featuring diamond doves along with diamond stud earrings.

The win is Blanchett’s third Bafta, with gongs for Elizabeth  in 1999 and a best supporting actress award in 2008 for Todd Haynes’ I’m Not There, in which she played one of six incarnations of Bob Dylan. She is also Oscar-nominated for the role in Blue Jasmine, and is the favourite to win.
