The organization had already announced plans to honor director/producer Judd Apatow, director Kathryn Bigelow, and Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos for their roles in supporting actors and performing artists in their careers.

Winslet has been nominated for seven Academy Awards, winning for her role as Hanna Schmitz in Stephen Daldry’s 2008 “The Reader.” She was first nominated for “Sense and Sensibility” in 1996, followed by “Titanic,” “Iris,” “Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind,” “Little Children” and “Steve Jobs.”

The award also recognizes Winslet’s dedication and commitment to philanthropic activities ranging from global causes like her own Golden Hat Foundation working for children with autism and their families, and charities in the U.K. such as Cardboard Citizens.

SAG-AFTRA Foundation President JoBeth Williams said, “Kate has been a game changer and role model in our industry, setting a sterling example for all artists and leaders to use their influence to give back to the greater welfare of others. We look forward to presenting her with this award for all she has accomplished, and all she has given back.”
