Best Actress winner paid homage to her "buddy" Hoffman during her speech at last night's ceremony..
The star - who picked up the accolade for her part in Blue Jasmine - dedicated her trophy to Hoffman, who passed away earlier this month at the age of 46.
In her speech, Blanchett said: "Your monumental talent, your generosity and your unflinching quest for the truth both in life and in art, will be missed by so many people.
"You raised the bar, continually, so very very high and all we can do in your absence is try to raise it."
She added: "Phil, buddy, you bastard, this is for you. I hope you're proud."
Blanchett previously starred alongside Hoffman in 1999 flick, The Talented Mr Ripley.
