Winslet Prepares A Bafta Speech
Actress Kate Winslet is preparing an acceptance speech for next month's (Feb09) British Academy awards (BAFTAs) - after she was caught off guard by her double win at the Golden Globes.
The British star was forced to improvise onstage twice at the Hollywood bash this month (Jan09), when she was named Best Actress for Revolutionary Road and Best Supporting Actress for The Reader.
And Winslet has been left so embarrassed by her emotional and out-of-breath acceptance speeches - during which she forgot she was nominated against Angelina Jolie - she is determined to be better prepared next time.
The 33 year old is nominated twice in the Best Actress category for the BAFTAs, and reveals, "Well, clearly, I should prepare a speech because I didn't think that was going to happen at the Golden Globes."
But she insists she won't be disappointed to miss out at the BAFTAs - she's just happy to be nominated alongside Angelina Jolie, Kristin Scott Thomas and Meryl Streep.
Winslet adds, "I'm just so excited to be included this year, I mean, I really am. It's been a remarkable two years, I think, for films in general and there's some absolutely stunning performances out there so to be up there with those heavyweights is really amazing."
