Kate Winslet [5·Oct·1975]

One of my favorite actresses turns 37 today! Everyone that knows me knows how much I love and admire this woman. She is the epitome of talent, elegance and style. The best actress of her generation, she’s like the love child of Grace Kelly and Meryl Streep, and, in a career of two decades, she’s already garnered a record-setting six Oscar nominations.

Kate Elizabeth Winslet was born in Reading, Berkshire, England on October 5th, 1975. Happy birthday, Kate!

Please enjoy this fantastic video that reminded me why I love the Oscars so much. As Hanna Schmitz in The Reader, Winslet won her much-delayed first Academy Award.
