Kate Winslet Wins 2009 Golden Globe - Best Actress

Revolutionary Road star Kate Winslet (in Yves Saint Laurent) proudly shows off her trophy for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama” at the 2009 Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 11) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

During her acceptance speech, the 33-year-old British actress momentarily forgot Angelina Jolie was one of the contenders! “I’m so sorry Anne [Hathaway], Meryl [Streep], Kristin [Scott Thomas] – oh God, who’s the other one?” You can watch her acceptance speech here.

Kate also picked up a Globe for “Best Performance by an Actress In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture” for her work in The Reader.

On the red carpet, Kate was accompanied by co-star Leonardo DiCaprio (in Giorgio Armani). Congrats, Kate!!!

    Congratulations Kate, you really deserve this Golden Globe and obviously an Oscar too, Leo lost best actor because of this I’am not totally happy tonight , but Kate is the best actress actually, I really like her in all her movies, she’s brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kaitlin

    i loved her speech. it was so beautiful and almost made me cry! haha

  • Kyra

    GO KATE!!!! best actress of her generation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Riri

    She is annoying and confuses pornography with acting.
    The foreign press loves porn, though.

  • * VICTORIA *

    WONDERFUL, KATE !!!!….YOU DESERVED IT…CONGRATULATIONS !!

  • Riri

    By the way, I heard Angelina demanded that the show will not focus on her face. She had a case of too much Botox before it looks more “normal”, and she prolly demanded to be seen only from afar.

  • mz Sass

    I’m willing to bet money that Anne Hathaway will win Best Actress at the Oscars.
    Kate will win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

  • aliz

    KATE THE GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!
    alleluya!! she deserves it more than anyone tonight and in the past!!
    love u kate ^__^

  • Julia

    Yay I am so happy. She deserves it.

  • holly

    Kate looks good. Simple elegant without trying too hard..(cough cough jlo)

  • Riri

    Not Anne nor Kate deserved that award.
    The best performance was of “I’ve Loved You For So Long” actress.

    But Anne and Kate got the PR machine working for them.

  • Jen1

    Congratulations to Kate! That’s wonderful. She really does deserve it, everything bestowed her. And her and Leo look marvelous together. I’m really happy. :)

  • jenMN

    i am SO SUPER excited for kate! 2 wins in one night! congrats to her! her best actress speech was AMAZING…loved the leo shoutout!

  • j

    Congrats Kate. You deserve the award! Too bad neither Brad nor Angie won though :(

  • celeste

    I love you Kate the Great, I’m rooting for you for an inevitable Oscar nomination and win. You are the ultimate Golden Girl.

  • Riri

    Kate’s thing was- to get naked as much as possible, and push for awards for that.

    This is not the adult film industry and just like Charlize Theron got an Oscar for gaining weight and making herself look ugly- these awards have lost their original meaning.

  • karma for the jolie

    You suck Jolie! Two time loser. Don’t bother to show up at the Oscars!

  • Riri

    I do have to say that the makeup and hair of Kate was perfect.

  • http://justjared chadoet

    i cried at her speech..so touching…love you kate! congrats..

  • sweetie

    Beautiful and an amazing actress. Congrats! :-)

  • karma for the brad

    Brad is a loser too.
    Double KARMA for both of them!!!!

  • Jeremy

    Kate Winslet did a fine job but Anne Hathaway deserved to win this category! She was just amazing at ‘Rachel Getting Married’. She only lost because the Golden Globes did not wanted to admit its error of putting out Anne’s name as winner before the event. I am quite sure that in the SAGs and Academy Awards, Anne will win Best Actress and Kate will win Best Supporting Actress for ‘The Reader’ !

  • LYB

    I m so happy for her~ !!!!! especially for this film (RR) which is one of my favorite novels. she works so hard, and a fantastic actress, she truely deserves it more than anyone. i m so glad she finally got the recognition for her hard work. Congratulations Kate~

  • Jeremy

    But i absolutely loved Kate’s speech and the forgotten actress part… Angelina! It was absolutely priceless to see her face.

  • nix

    SHE DESERVED IT! OH MY GOD I CAN’T BELIEVE IT !!!! I’M SOOOO EXCITED FOR HER :)
    GO KATE !!!!

  • hannahh

    Jeremy, the star on Anne’s name showed up before all the votes were even counted so I don’t think she was the intended winner, it was probably just because her name was at the top of the list.

    I LOOOOVE Kate and I’m so happy she won! She is incredible and her speech was beautiful and genuine. And when she forgot Angelina, that was absolutely hilariousssss!

    What was her shtick about? Ok, your a good actress but seriously! Just say thank you and move on.

  • tora

    She is the goddess of acting, and deserves every awards she gets. Now, wouldn’t it be so ideal with she and Leo ended up falling in love, happily ever after… ha ha

  • nicolem

    Congratulations Kate! I still feel like crying! I’m so happy for her–she deserves this. I hope she wins that Oscar!

  • Riri

    It was funny how she failed to recognize Angelina as a good actress and only paid respect to the other nominees.

    Kate is right. Angelina cannot act and should not have been a nominee to begin with.

  • b

    Congratulations Kate!!!! :-)

  • Way to Go

    I am so happy for Kate Winslet. It seems that Leo has gotten so much more recognition since the blockbuster Titanic movie, yet I always though Kate too was a great actress.

    She looked beautiful and I loved her shout out to Leo!!!!

  • josephina

    Congrats to Kate!!! She deserved it!!!

    Only one person can win an award, It is truly an honor to be nominated. I admire all of the nominees in this category.

    Her comment about forgetting who the other actresses are was completely innocent. She was excited and startled all at once- and she forgot her train of thought in the middle of a sentence. Please do not trash this extraordinary moment by implying that she was catty during her acceptance speech. She said it herself, she is not used to winning. She is a gracious person who would not intentionally insult anyone while getting honored for her hard work. That would be totally tasteless, and that would be out of character for her.

  • Way to Go

    Wow I missed the part where Kate acknowledged everyone nominated but Angie. Not a dig on Angie, but, she really isnt a great actress she is a great action kind of movie actress though. Less acting more physical kind of thing.

    Goodness I am sure Kate didnt realize she snubbed Angie, but a Freudian slip I suppose speaks volumes.

  • mju8

    Congrats to her for winning in both categories. I much prefer it when Oscar season is wide open rather than where the winners for Best Actor and Actress are 100% guaranteed.

  • jennifer

    WOW, Leo looks radiant in this pics, his smile in the trird pic it’s beautiful, so gorgeous, I really love to see him beside Kate, they look perfect together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • eliza

    This is her year. Congratulations, Kate.

  • ann

    really happy for kate! so cute how she thanked leo and her husband

  • V-loyalist

    I am so happy for her winning this major award, good job girl!!

  • Marie

    No, RIRI you’re the annoying one here with your bunch of posts. Kate Winslet is an amazing actress and only a prude like you would focus on the fact that she takes off her clothes in films. And it has nothing to do with her PR team either. She won, get over it your comments won’t change that.

    You sound like an idiot.

    As much as I appreciate kate she absolutely did not deserve this award for Rev Rd. Far from a best performance and not the best of the 5 nominated.

    While the book was excellent, the movie totally fails to capture the irony and depth of the novel.

  • anonymous

    Annoying speech. People just hear the accent and autmotically think something intelligent is coming out. She’s been around long enough to do better than that.

    Ricky Gervaise’s shout out to Kate about doing a holocaust movie and the awards would follow was hilarious.

  • Lizzy

    #34, she hasn’t won before. No shtick. Everyone makes an acceptance speech and are full by happiness. Most don’t say “thank you and move on”.
