Kate Winslet Fan

Heads up for the Screen Actors Guild Awards to be telecast live this Sunday, January 28, at 8 pm ET/PT on TNT and TBS.

Kate is up for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role and Jackie Earle Haley is up for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role, for Little Children.

I’d appreciate it if anyone who can record the show would contribute with videos of Kate since where I live they put voice-over simultaneous translation. Thanks in advance! :)

A fellow Kate fan and current visitor of the site and forums (who, for now, would like to stay “anonymous”) has a proposal to give Kate our support as they will try and meet with her on this year’s Oscar Nominee Luncheon on February 5th. They write:

“I am going to the Oscar nominee luncheon and would like to bring something to Kate that shows our support. I was thinking a fanart or card that said ‘You will always be our Best Actress’ or something to that effect. I don’t want to be in charge of creating it, I just want to throw it out there as an idea for anyone who thinks they can make something really nice that I could just print as an 8×10 and give to her. I’d like it to be a collage that has photos of her from every nominated performance or maybe all of her most significant performances.”

“I’ve been laughing, crying, hollering, whooping and leaping around”, Little Children star Kate Winslet said.”My husband, Sam [Mendes], called me. He’s in London, I’m in New York. I had just dropped my daughter at school and I was taking my son. There was some serious fist pumping, pounding the ceiling of the car.”

“This isn’t supposed to happen to a girl who grew up in a tiny town. I was told the only way I’d have a career as an actress would be if I could settle for playing fat girls.”

And what did Winslet have to say about co-star Jackie Earle Haley’s nod?

“It’s not just a whole new career, it’s a whole new life. It’s gonna change him and his self esteem.”

Due to the most recent interview from Hollywood Life, where she remarks the press being very intrusive (especially in London) and is quoted as saying: “A normal everyday activity, going to the grocery store or to the swing set, immediately became abnormal because you’d go with five paparazzi. You’d see them hiding in trees and try desperately to ignore them because you don’t want your child affected by it. It’s weird and freaky. You just don’t want someone you don’t know taking a photograph of your small child. It’s sick”, I’ve taken down and put offline all the candids pics there were in the gallery.

I know that some people find it fun and amusing to see Kate walking up and down the streets and as an ordinary person, but as fans, we must learn to respect Kate’s personal feelings about that. When I was uploading candids before, I was not aware of her true thoughts on it since in every other magazine I’d read she quoted as saying: “If you give them what they want, they’ll love you”. By that, one is lead to think she didn’t care much about it. Because this site, above all things, respects Ms. Winslet as a serious actress and most importantly, as an human being, I find it unnecessary to post this kind of photographs if our true intention is to acknowledge Kate’s work.

From now on, only pics of Kate outside TV Shows and such, where she acknowledges photographers and is seen waving and giving autographs to fans will be posted.

Thank you for your comprehension.
