OSCAR nominee Kate Winslet wasn't in the mood for partying after the Academy Awards on Sunday (27FEB05), because she had to get up early the next day.

The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind beauty lost out to MILLION DOLLAR BABY star Hilary Swank in the Best Actress category at the ceremony in Hollywood's Kodak Theater.

Following the lengthy award presentations, Winslet had to get back to work on Steven Zaillian's All the King's Men, while Oscar-winning husband Sam Mendes was also due back on set.

The 29-year-old said, "Sam's got to be on the set of his film at 5am, and I'm taking my kids and my parents on a plane to New Orleans first thing in the morning."
