After winning the best actress and best supporting actress awards at the Golden Globes, poor Kate Winslet faced a slew of criticism because she forgot to mention Angelina Jolie in her thank-you speech.
During her speech, the overwhelmed actress congratulated her fellow nominees by name and ended up drawing a blank on Jolie, overlooking the Changeling star completely.
Winslet can’t believe her speech has been savaged by critics.
“It’s the one thing that has surprised me about this thing of winning awards; I thought that people just reviewed the films. I didn’t realize that they reviewed speeches, too,” the Revolutionary Road and The Reader star said.
“I don’t tend to read reviews of things, but when people are reviewing a speech and being somewhat unkind about it, well, what can you say?”
The actress concluded by giving her apologies in hopes she will be left alone.
“Look, I wasn’t prepared at all. I really didn’t think I was going to win and I was genuinely overwhelmed. I’m sorry.”
