Kate Winslet: Her Own Worst Enemy

It is not often that an actor or actress can hurt their chances of winning an award by having two great films in the theaters at once. This has happened in the past and it is most likely to happen again. This year it is happening to Kate Winslet.

Last month, Kate Winslet won two Golden Globes. She won Best Supporting Actress for The Reader and she won Best Actress in a Drama for Revolutionary Road. Now she is nominated for Best Actress for The Reader for an Oscar. She wanted to be nominated for Revolutionary Road instead. Now Revolutionary Road does not have the same hype as it did before the Oscar nominations came out. Of the two films, I have only seen The Reader. I saw it because it is nominated for Best Picture.

Kate Winslet is a very talented actress. She may finally win an Oscar this year. She was great in The Reader. But had one of her two films come out next winter, she probably would have been nominated for both of them. I think that she would admit this too.

How about Leo? He is constantly left out of the oscars.
