Cate Blanchett couldn't stop smiling at the Spirit Awards in Santa Monica on Saturday. Donning a red, blue, and beige dress, the actress lit up the stage after she won the award for best female lead for her performance in Blue Jasmine. Cate also gave a sweet tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman, James Gandolfini, and Roger Ebert, sharing thoughtful words about the late actors and film critic, respectively. Throughout the season, Cate has given all sorts of winning speeches, from hilarious digs at Matthew McConaughey at the SAGs to a heartfelt tribute to Philip at the BAFTAs. Cate still has one big ceremony left — on Sunday, she'll battle other leading ladies for the coveted best actress Academy Award!
Oh, Cate! We Don't Want to Know Award Season Without Your Spirit
