Kate Winslet

Today, we're celebrating the 36th birthday of Kate Winslet. She started acting in the early 1990s on a number of television series and finally got her first role in a feature film in 1994's Heavenly Creatures. From there, Winslet began to skyrocket toward superstardom, which she ultimately achieved after nabbing Academy Award nominations for her performances in 1995's Sense & Sensibility and 1997's Titanic. From there, she has seemingly only meddled in dramatic fare, choosing her roles carefully over the years. It took her until her sixth Academy Award nomination (for 2008's The Reader) finally to win the illustrious award. You can currently see Winslet in theaters in Contagion, and her next film will be a dramatic comedy called Carnage, which is slated for a December 16 U.S. release and will also star Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly. So, for her birthday, I've listed my five favorite of Winslet's roles. Here's hoping you enjoy the clips! Once again, happy birthday Kate Winslet!
