Gina Wilhelm Actress – Kate Winslet and Tina Fey Win Golden Globes
The Golden Globe ceremony was held last night, January 11, 2009.
Despite an earlier web mistake, it was Kate Winslet, not Anne Hathaway, who took home the best actress in a drama award for her role in “Revolutionary Road.”
Winslet also received a supporting actress award for her work in “The Reader.”
On the television side of things, Tina Fey won best actress in a comedy series for her work on “30 Rock.” The program, which she also writes and produces, won for best television musical or comedy.
The Golden Globes have a reputation for being fairly informal. Mickey Rourke (who won best actor in a drama for “The Wrestler”) gave an acceptance speech littered with obscenity.
Fey told her internet critics to “suck it.”
In her speech, Kate Winslet said she was unaccustomed to victory. She had been nominated for five previous Golden Globes, but never won.
Now it’s on to the Oscars, where Winslet also has five nominations but no wins.
