Queen of the Night

After 7 Golden Globe nominations and 5 Academy Award nominations Kate Winslet finally took home some gold and she did so in dominating fashion. Kate Winslet won both Best Supporting Actress - Drama for The Reader and Best Actress - Drama for Revolutionary Road.

She has been nominated in the past for her roles in Sense and Sensibility, Titanic, Iris, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Little Children and she is only 33 years young.
