Kate shares in the BAFTA press room about what she did to get the part in Steve Jobs! Such a fun clip!
20 years on from her first BAFTA! Kate Winslet dedicates her BAFTA speech to any young women who doubts herself.
Congratulations to Kate on her win at last night’s BAFTA Awards where she won for Best Supporting actress for her role in Steve Jobs.
Earlier this week Kate and her co-stars attended a screening of their new film Triple 9 in London.
How would you like to remembered after all is said and done?
PEOPLE posed the question to several Oscar nominees as part of this year’s portfolio and video series saluting the great female performances of 2015.
Best Supporting Actress nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight) joked, “It’s like writing your own obit or something.”
Then she added she wanted “To have created characters that hit home that you recognize and understand somehow even if who they are and what they’re going through is antithetical to your own life.”
Fellow Supporting Actress nominee Rachel McAdams (Spotlight) said, “I would like to be remembered for kindness.”
Best Actress contender Brie Larson (Room) has high aspirations. “Well, my dream was always to have a stamp. I feel like people who have a stamp really did something,” she said.
“They really did some acts of service.”
Alicia Vikander, up for Best Supporting Actress for The Danish Girl, said, “That I was brave, that I dared to try new things. I think hopefully that will make it an interesting life to look back on. That you never really knew what turn I was going to take. I still love not knowing where I’m going to be in 10 years.”
2008 Oscar-winner Kate Winslet, whose performance in Steve Jobs earned her a supporting nod this year, said, “I would most like to be remembered as an actress who always played different roles. Who always tried something new. Who always pushed boundaries, challenged herself.”
And Charlotte Rampling, nominated for her first Academy Award for her work in 45 Years, added, “I will hope that I’ve made people feel what I’ve felt.”
I have added some new stills that were released from Kate’s new film Triple 9.

Kate shares with People.com why she won’t be boycotting the Oscars this year … and it isn’t just because of Leo.
Sure, Kate Winslet’s nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar this year – but there’s another reason why the actress says she would never miss attending the ceremony.
“I feel very strongly that it may possibly be Leo’s year,” Winslet said about DiCaprio at the London premiere of her latest film, Triple 9 on Tuesday, according to Vanity Fair. “He is my closest friend in the world and I just couldn’t imagine not being there to support him.”
DiCaprio is widely considered to be an Oscar frontrunner for his lead role in The Revenant. If he wins, it will be his first time taking home the award after four previous nominations.
Winslet has stayed close with the actor since they burst onto the scene together as romantic interests in Titanic back in 1997.
“He’s a solid, loyal person,” Winslet recently told PEOPLE. “He’s a great friend, he always has been, and not just to me, but to everyone around him. He still has friends he had when we made Titanic.”
In addition to supporting DiCaprio, Winslet explained another reason why she won’t be joining some celebs in boycotting the event despite the lack of minority nominees.
“To be honest with you, it has been such an extraordinary year for women. I’d feel like I was letting my side down if I didn’t go,” Winslet told reporters, including the BBC. “I think those are reasons enough really to show my face.”
Winslet, meanwhile, is nominated for the seventh time in her career for her role in Steve Jobs. She previously took home the Oscar for best actress in 2009 for The Reader.
Jack and Rose’s Titanic love is stronger than ever.
Kate Winslet is more than hopeful that Leonardo DiCaprio will finally win an Oscar for his work in The Revenant.
“It does really feel as though it’s Leo’s year and I’m just super excited for him,” Winslet told E! News earlier today while promoting her new flick Triple 9. “And [there’s] the sense of good will behind him, and that everyone wants it for him. You know, people in the streets. It’s really really wonderful. I think it’s real testament to that fact that he’s such a lovely person and that people really not only admire him but also really like him and respect him.
“I feel quite proud of that, it’s lovely,” she said, holding back tears. “I keep getting emotional when I talk about Leo.”
Meanwhile, Winslet revealed who she’ll be wearing to the Oscars, where she’s up for actress in a supporting role for her work in Steve Jobs.
“I’m working with Ralph Lauren and they’re making something for me and it’s lovely,” she said. “It’s been a really fun process actually and them including me quite a lot and my ideas, their ideas, and what works and what doesn’t. It should be fun. I just want to be comfortable. I just don’t want to have any zips that break. That’s my whole thing, zips. I have zip fear.”
But she refuses to let the fashion critics get the best of her. “You get on the carpet and all bets are off,” Winslet said. “You just smile and wave, just get through it and then don’t read any press. That’s my trick–I don’t look at any of it. I just get through it, have a glass of champagne and go home.”
Triple 9 is in theaters on Feb. 26.
