An Oscar. Golden Globes. Now an Emmy. And if there was an award for overly giddy acceptance speeches, Kate Winslet might well win that too. And she’s quite all right with that.

When asked about her tendency to be slightly over-the-top in her speeches, Winslet made no apologies to the haters.


‘I was truly, extremely unprepared, and I didn’t think I would win at all,’ she said. ‘I’m so thrilled to have won this. It just comes out the way it comes out. There’s not a huge amount you can do about it.’

Winslet was awarded lead actress in a miniseries or movie for the title role in HBO’s five-part miniseries ‘Mildred Pierce.’ Sure, the gold statuette was nice. But it was more of a thrill to share screen time with costar -- and fellow winner -- Guy Pearce.

‘I’ve had a crush on Guy Pearce since I was 11 years old.’
