Kate Winslet é, segundo a Time, a melhor actriz mundial do momento. O Óscar pode voltar a escapar-lhe (é a sua 6ª nomeação...) mas este «prémio» de consolação já ninguém lho tira:
At 33, Winslet has become not only the finest actress of her generation but in many ways also the perfect actress for this moment. (...) She's intense without being humorless. She's ambitious but cheerfully self-deflating, capable of glamour but also expressive of a kind of jolting common sense. She has a strong professional ethic, which she somehow balances with her domestic life. (...) And, cementing her status as an icon of the Era of New Seriousness, she really likes hard work. Assuming she's paid her taxes, are there still any openings in the Cabinet?
