Philip Seymour Hoffman: A Tribute

This past weekend, The 86th Academy Awards said their farewell to Philip Seymour Hoffman by giving him the final In Memoriam card and holding on it for several seconds longer than the rest of the obituary reel. It's been over a month since the Oscar-winning actor passed away, and many of us still can't believe he's gone. Fellow Doubt star Amy Adams recently tearfully honored him on "Inside the Actors Studio," and now one final video tribute to the late actor has arrived. Clocking in at just over 20 minutes, this one includes everything, and it's still pretty damn tough to watch knowing that he really is gone. Watch below.

Here's the video P.S. Hoffman: A Tribute from Caleb Slain (via SlashFilm):

As you can see, the video truly spans Hoffman's impressive career. It begins with his guest appearance on "Law & Order" in 1991 and moves all the way through 2012 to The Master and A Late Quartet. Since The Hunger Games: Catching Fire doesn't arrive on Blu-Ray and DVD until this Friday, we imagine editor didn't have any great footage to work with to include in the video. Though Hoffman won't be delivering anymore of his on-screen talent, at least audiences will see a few more performances Hoffman had already finished in A Most Wanted Man, God's Pocket and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.

    Amazing work. Hoffman's work in THE MASTER is a definitive piece of art that will go down in history as nothing short of mastercraft.

    One of the best actors in the history of film PERIOD

      Mosdef. Heaps better than over rated Heath Ledger.

        Why exactly do you feel you had to denigrate Heath Ledger in order to praise PSH? I see NOWHERE in this article or anywhere for that matter where people are saying Heath Ledger WAS better. Ledger was not overrrated he was young and just starting to come into his own. Ironically if it weren't for Hoffman's portrayal that year of Capote Ledger would've won and deserved the Oscar for Brokeback Mountain.

          Fair enough.
  • SkyNet300
    Not to fuel the fire here but Ledger was overrated. One great performance (Dark Knight) and that's about it. He was a dry actor in everything else he did.

    I could watch Capote a million times - amazing physical transformation as well tremendous acting. This montage was incredible and a great tribute to a man with so much talent and dedication to his craft. What was the wind that was pushing him to say his good bye to us way too soon?
