Congratulations, Revolutionary Kate Winslet

The sixth time is the charm for Kate Winslet, who won an impressive two Golden Globes on Sunday for ‘Best Actress’ in Revolutionary Road and ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for‘The Reader’. What a singular feat. At the age of 22, she broke the record for the youngest person to receive two Oscar nominations, and at one point tied the record for the most Academy Award nomination for an actress before the age of 30 (she has thus far garnered 5 Oscar nominations). Considered one of the best actresses of her generation, there is absolutely no doubt that Kate will receive many more nominations, wins, and honors in her acting future.

Kate's association with Jane Austen is through her role as Marianne Dashwood in 1995's Sense and Sensibility, for which she received an oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. For my part, her interpretation of Marianne is my favorite.

Kate Winslet is my favorite actress. (Along with Cate Blanchett.) I was very glad to see her win.
