It's official, the ballots are in and Kate Winslet, the English rose who has impressed us over and over again since her film debut at the tender age of nineteen in Peter Jackson's murderous hit Heavenly Creatures went home last night with two count 'em two Golden Globe statues to celebrate her fine acting chops.
Kate has received a total of 5 Oscar nods, but has gone home empty handed every time. Thanks to the Hollywood Foreign Press, Kate's luck might be a-changing with a Best Supporting Actress win for her Holocaust drama The Reader and Best Actress in a Drama win for Revolutionary Road, the film that finally reunited Kate with her Titanic co-star and best bud Leonardo DiCaprio.
Kate looked as stunning as ever in her black strapless Yves St. Laurent, and was clearly not expecting her double victory. During her second acceptance speech she was more than a bit flustered and even forgot Angelina Jolie's name at some point referring to her as "the other one" which ended up being my personal highlight of the night. Angelina gets too much attention as it is. It must have been humbling to have someone forget her name for once.
Start practicing your acceptance speeches for the Academy Awards now Kate, because I have a feeling you'll be taking home my shiny little bald friend Oscar in a few months.
Stay tuned for the best and worst dressed of the night!
