Premiul Oscar pentru cel mai bun actor, Capote, 2005. Trei nominalizari pentru cel mai bun actor in rol secundar.
Tocmai se anuntase un nou proiect regizoral al sau, Ezekiel Moss. Hoffman a regizat Jack Goes Boating in 2010. Cel mai recent, a avut premiera la Sundance cu A Most Wanted Man, al lui Anton Corbijn, dupa John le Carré. Ultima data l-am vazut in sensibilul A Late Quartet (2012). Actor fantastic, versatil, jovial, preferat al lui PTA; The Master (premiu de actorie la Venetia, nominalizare Oscar), Magnolia, Punch-Drunk-Love, Boogie Nights, arthouse star: Happiness, Synecdoche, New York, State and Main, si pentru mine Lester Bangs in Almost Famous, The Count in The Boat That Rocked (aka Pirate radio) si Brendt din The Big Lebowski. Bad guy psihotic in Mission: Impossible III. Alte roluri, in The Talented Mr. Ripley, Charlie Wilson's War, Doubt, Moneyball, Hunger Games.
Un interviu cu el in The Guardian, zice, citez:
Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of the most miserable men I have ever met, and one of the most humane. I interviewed him in 2011 when he was promoting his directing debut, Jack Goes Boating – a quiet, still and surprisingly optimistic film.
Of course, he was anything but optimistic in the flesh. It was painful for him to sit down and talk when all he wanted to do was get away and smoke in silence. He spoke in the same fractured, tortured sentences as he did in his films. Nobody did crippled communication quite like Hoffman. Hoffman was a lumbering, grumbling bear of a man.
"I got to remember to not kill myself, not beat myself up, not get too worked up about it. There will be another film, there will be another relationship, or I'll die and then I'll be dead."
Philip Seymour Hoffman (1967-2014)
