Kate Winslet double winner at Golden Globe
Kate Winslet was a double winner at the Beverly Hills, Calif., awards bonanza — capturing best supporting actress for The Reader and then best actress (drama) for Revolutionary Road.
"I'm so sorry. Meryl, Kristin. Oh God, who's the other one? Oh, Angelina. OK, gather," a weeping and breathless Winslet said near the end of the night.
"I've had two extraordinary years in which I played two remarkable women, and I'd like to thank my agents who've been with me for so many years," continued the 33-year-old British thespian, who beat out Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married), Angelina Jolie (Changeling), Kristin Scott Thomas (I've Loved You So Long) and Meryl Streep (Doubt) for the best actress prize.

Winslet also paid homage to the abilities of her Revolutionary Road co-star Leonardo DiCaprio — the two reunited more than a decade after their Titanic pairing — and her husband, Sam Mendes, who directed the film.
One of the biggest ovations of the night was for the best actor in a movie drama — an award handed to Mickey Rourke, whose own down-and-out life parallelled that of his character in The Wrestler.
"It's been a long road," a gruff Rourke said to hoots and hollers from the crowd. "I want to thank my director for fighting for me because he couldn't get money because of my name. Darren Aronofsky.... As they say in sports, great players come out every 30 years, and Darren is one of those players."
