Kate Winslet is known for her grace and poise, but when she received a Golden Globe Award last night, her composure disappeared and everything was caught on camera.
After being named as the night’s ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for her work in “The Reader”, Winslet took another round to the stage to deliver a breathless, unscripted speech with remarks like “Oh God!” “I’m so sorry” and even forgetting the name of her fellow nominee Angelina Jolie, after recognizing Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Kristin Scott Thomas.
As though Kate Winslet was absolutely sure she wasn’t going to win, she adds to her speech, “Now forgive me, is this really happening?”and acknowledged ‘Revolutionary Road’ co-star Leonardo DiCaprio and her husband Sam Mendes. You’ll understand how Kate Winslet must have felt. Besides, the British actress has been nominated 10 times, but has never won a Golden Globe or Oscar before.
Though many people say that it wasn’t Kate Winslet’s hour, having made such an unprepared speech, winning two Golden Globes, and looking gorgeous while she’s at it, I believe she deserved both awards. So a huge Congratulations to Winslet!
