Kate Winslet Talks Year of ‘Girl Power’ Backstage After Golden Globes Win

Kate Winslet was the winner of the Golden Globe Award for supporting actress in a motion picture, and no one was more surprised for the “Steve Jobs” actress than herself. Even backstage, she reiterated her shock. “I’m still standing here and I keep thinking this is maybe not happening,” she said. “I honestly, truthfully, did not expect this at all and I’m so delighted, I’m so thrilled.”

Winslet had high praise for her competition in the category. “I think women are doing such great work,” she said. “Look at Helen Mirren and Jane Fonda. These wonderful woman that we’re so fortunate to stand alongside and learn from, still. It’s incredibly exciting to have that array of skill to be inspired by. There’s a real sense of girl power I think, in this year. It’s just incredible to be a part of that.”

Winslet went on to say that she enjoyed the challenge of “Steve Jobs,” which came to her as a 187-page script. “I just knew that this was a woman who was nothing like me,” she said. She added that the woman she was playing, Joanna Hoffman, was very different from her. “She looked nothing like me, was from a world that I know nothing about. I wanted that challenge.”

The actress also regretted that she forgot to thank Hoffman in her speech “because I didn’t think I was going to be making one.” As for her post-Globes plans? “I booked a massage for 9 p.m., which I think I’m going to have to cancel!”
