Big Win For Kate Winslet At 2021 Emmy Awards

This win marks Kate Winslet’s first win in over ten years as she last won an Emmy Award for 2011’s “Mildred Pierce.”

An extravagant Kate Winslet was named Best Actress for her chance as a grieved criminal investigator in the limited series “Mare of Easttown.” The actress took the stage to accept an award and received a standing ovation from the crowd.

“Mom, mom they’re standing up!” Winslet said out of joy before she started her endearing discourse after she composed herself from the mind-boggling feeling, “Oh my God, thank you so much!”

“I just want to acknowledge my fellow nominees in this decade that has to be about women having each other’s backs. I support you; I salute you. I’m proud of all of you.” the now two-time Emmy winner continued.

“It seemed to — I don’t know — it was this cultural moment and it brought people together and gave them something to talk about other than a global pandemic and I want to thank everyone for watching out show.”

Winslet likewise got down on the show’s maker, Brad Inglesby. “This is you; this is all you… you created a middle-aged, imperfect flawed mother and you made us all feel validated.”

Finishing up her acknowledgment discourse, she also gave credits to her family, “My children — Mia, Joe and Bear — the greatest people in the world. And my husband Ned, who I get to hold hands with for the rest of my life. Yes, I am the winner! Thank you so much.”

Her “Mare of Easttown” co-star Julianne Nicholson who played as Lori Ross also won an Emmy award and it happened to her first. In her speech, she said that she owns her achievement to Winslet.

“If you hadn’t called and asked if I wanted to join you in Philly, I probably would have read the first two episodes, thought ‘Nah, the priest did it,’ and stayed home. So, I owe this to you,” she said while looking at Winslet in the crowd.

According to Deadline, “Mare of Easttown” garnered 16 Emmy nominations, and the Nicholson win makes it four for the series. It received a statue at the Creative Arts Emmys for Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Contemporary Program (One Hour or More), along with Peters’ Best Supporting Actor win tonight.

@vanssakrbyfilms

just a reminder that kate winslet had to fight for mare's unfiltered look where her wrinkles are NOT edited and told the director to not cut her "bulgy bit of belly" sex scene because she wants her female audience to connect with her character where there are no filters #emmys
