Kate Winslet and Slumdog Millionaire ensured that Sunday was a memorable night for the British film industry at the Golden Globes awards.
The 33-year-old scooped two awards including best actress in a dramatic film, during a night that also saw success for fellow British actress Sally Hawkins for her role in Mike Leigh’s Happy-Go-Lucky.
But it was the British-made story of how impoverished Indian teen Jamal Malik became a contestant on the Hindi version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? that proved the biggest winner – taking home four trophies including best dramatic film.
Sunday night’s ceremony took place in front of Hollywood’s biggest stars at the Beverley Hilton.
There was early success for Winslet when she was announced as winner of best supporting actress for her role as a former concentration camp guard in The Reader.
She was called to the stage a second time to pick up best actress in a dramatic role for Revolutionary Road, which saw her reunited with her Titanic co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio.
Fresh from major success at the Critics’ Choice Awards last week, Slumdog Millionaire continued to storm Hollywood.
It took home the prestigious title of best dramatic film. In so doing it triumphed over Winslet’s Revolutionary Road and The Reader, Frost/Nixon and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.
There were also awards for its director Danny Boyle, screenplay writer Simon Beaufoy and musical composer A R Rahman.
