Kate Winslet's speech: cute or cringeworthy?

12 January 2009


Can you imagine the effort that goes into being a Hollywood star during awards season? The weeks spent agonising over what to wear? The exhausting months of working out and eating egg-white omelettes? The hours of teeth whitening, hair conditioning, skin moisturising, to create a glossier and even more perfect you to work the red carpet? Yet, as Kate Winslet's tearful monologue at the Golden Globes demonstrated, they always seem to forget one thing: the speech.

We had to watch through our fingers last night as Kate - seemingly on the cusp of hyperventilating throughout - forgot to mention Hollywood royalty Angelina Jolie, told Leo she loved him and gushed praise at the film's hair and make-up department as if her life depended on it.

Not that we haven't seen worse, of course. Remember Halle Berry's hysteria during her Martin Luther King moment? Click here to relive the cringe...

Or Sally Field's famously effusive ‘You like me, you really like me' moment? (Loving the perm, too).

And who could forget our favourite ever cringeworthy speech: Lovely Gwyneth blubbing at the Oscars? Just look at that picture - bless her.

Here's hoping for more comedy gushing at the Oscars next month... Kate to win!
