Kate Winslet has won the award for Best Supporting Actress, Motion Picture for her role in biopic “Steve Jobs,” at the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California, on January 10, 2016.
According to EWN, Kate Winslet was clearly shocked when she was announced as the winner of the Best Supporting Actress for her role as Joanna Hoffman in “Steve Jobs.”
The British actress said that she was “extremely surprised and overwhelmed.” She further added, “What an incredible year for women in film, these categories are so crowded and crammed with incredible skill and integrity and I feel prouder than ever to be included this year.”
Having won the Best Supporting Actress for “Steve Jobs,” Winslet becomes the fourth Best Actress Oscar winner who won an award again for a supporting role, reported Gold Derby. The first three Best Actress Oscar champs were Helen Hayes, Ingrid Bergman, and Maggie Smith.
Hayes, who won the Best Actress award for “The Sin of Madelon Claudet” in 1931, and later the Best Supporting Actress for “Airport” in 1970. Bergman won the Best Actress award twice – for “Gaslight” in 1944, and for “Anastasia” in 1956, and then won the Best Supporting Actress for “Murder on the Orient Express” in 1974. Smith won the Best Actress for “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” in 1969, and later the Best Supporting Actress for “California Suite” in 1978.
It seems that seven is a lucky number for Kate Winslet at the Oscars, reported the source. The actress has been a strong nominee to obtain a seventh bid for her supporting role in “Steve Jobs.” Indeed, she is the “seventh actress to claim both acting Oscars.” In 2008, she was the youngest actress to make six Oscar nominations at the age of 33, and finally won the Best Actress award for “The Reader.”
Congratulations to Kate Winslet for winning the Best Supporting Actress for “Steve Jobs” in the 2016 Golden Globe Awards!
