Tonight Kate wins a BAFTA for her role in The Reader
It is the second time Winslet has won a Bafta. The last time was in 1995 when she won for best supporting actress for Sense and Sensibility.
Her latest victory comes hot on the heels of a double win at January’s Golden Globes.
As she collected her Bafta Winslet paid tribute to producers Anthony Minghella and Sydney Pollack, who worked on the film.
“You are much missed today, and you will be much missed for many years to come, and this is for you. Thank you. Thank you,” she said.
She also thanked her friends and her parents, who attended the ceremony.
But the actress said she could not look at them for fear of bursting into tears.
