Kate Winslet Is Oscar-Worthy

Kate Winslet Is Oscar-Worthy

Kate Winslet shows off her wrapped-up Oscar just after arriving to JFK Airport from Los Angeles on Monday (February 23).

The 33-year-old actress won the Academy Award for Best Actress for performance in The Reader.

“I’d be lying if I haven’t made a version of this speech before,” Kate said while accepting the award. “I think I was probably 8 years old and staring into the bathroom mirror and this (Oscar) would be a shampoo bottle. But it’s not a shampoo bottle now.”

“My kids are waiting for me to bring home an Oscar,” Kate later said. “It’s great because with my husband’s Oscar we now have a pair. They love playing with my awards and this means they get to hold one each. I might just try and hang on to it for a while myself though.”

Kate the great!!!! Finally gets the recognition she deserves…

But it does make me wonder about the public’s taste……why on earth are there so many comments for someone like Jen aniston, but so few for Kate the Great?!?! That is just warped….

I don’t think she deserved the Oscar. She’s given better performances, plus I thought Anne Hathaway and Melissa Leo were better.

congrats kate! u’re a phenomenal actress.

In response to LolaSvelt (#10), I think she didn’t win for just her performance in “The Reader”, but for all the great performances she did in all her other previous films as well. I know it’s kinda unfair, but that’s the Academy for you. I doubt if any contest can be strictly objective anyway.

Kate is the one who deserved the Oscar. I am glad she won it. :-)

You go, Kate! Hands down, the best performance of the year! Super ultra hiper mega deserved!

i think that the reader was not oscar worthy. 90min, about a naked woman having sex with a child. also, who are the people that decide on who gets the oscars. sean penn, give me a break. milk and the reader are both flops. you guys picked losers.

Kate is a gorgeous woman and an amazing actress..she totally deserved the award!!!!

she is amazing woman she looks like a normal woman like all of us, she is modest, simple so smart and very wonderful.
i cried when she won. I’am sure that she will won another oscars maybe not next year but I’am sure that she will have anothers because she is wonderful actress.

The reader was an Oscar worthy preformance because Kate made me feel spympathy for Hanna her character even though I was disguested by her and she gave a believeable preformance playing an old woman. She DID deserve it! Plus Anne Hathaway didn’t deserve to win all she did was yell and try to act like an addict, even though I like her.

once again congrats kate, u deserved it imo
and in her plain clothes she honestly does not look that bad, altho her face doesnt look that great without makeup, she’s still a beautiful woman =]

Kate deserved it, and Sean Penn too. His Milk is terrific.
Penelope Cruz don’t deserved to win. I don’t understand her award. Marisa Tomei or Viola Davis are much better.

Congratulations, Kate!

Mickey Rourke shoulda won best actor and kate is a natural beauty!

I whooped when they read out her name – yay for Kate!

zk……..lets just get one thing straight right away. “Kate the Great” is reserved for Cate Blanchett and Cate Blanchett only.
OK, i’m so happy for her and loved her speech. That moment between her and her dad was really lovely. In an auditorium full of people it was such a personal and connecting moment for them both. That need for something real and familiar is something we all need in times that are so surreal. And her hair!!!! Perfection.
