London, Jan 19 (ANI): Kate Winslet is planning to prepare a speech for the Bafta Awards ceremony to avoid repeating her gushing Golden Globes acceptance.
Earlier this month, the 33-year-old British actress picked up two Golden Globes for The Reader and Revolutionary Road and the films have earned her two nominations for the Best Actress award at this year’’s Bafta ceremony.
The Titanic star was very emotional at the Golden Globes ceremony, telling the audience “I”m sorry, I have a habit of not winning things.”
However, speaking at the London premiere of Revolutionary Road, the actress revealed that shes planning to prepare a speech for the Bafta Awards ceremony, following her gushing acceptance at the Golden Globes.
“Well, clearly, I should prepare a speech because I didn”t think that was going to happen at the Golden Globes, the Telegraph quoted her, as saying.
“Some people apparently haven”t been very nice about it, but luckily I”ve been in America where they”ve said very nice things.
“I”m just so excited to be included this year, I mean, I really am. It’’s been a remarkable two years, I think, for films in general and there’’s some absolutely stunning performances out there so to be up there with those heavyweights is really amazing,” she added. (ANI)
