Kate Elizabeth Winslet, CBE, is an English actress and singer. She was the youngest person to acquire six Academy Award nominations, and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for The Reader. She has won awards from the Screen Actors Guild, British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association among others, and has been nominated twice for an Emmy Award for television acting, winning once for her performance in the 2011 miniseries Mildred Pierce, in which she played the title role. In 2012 she received the Honorary César Award. She is one of the few actresses to have won three of the four major American entertainment awards, with her Oscar, Emmy and Grammy wins. Brought up in Berkshire, Winslet studied drama from childhood, and began her career in British television in 1991. She made her film debut in Heavenly Creatures, for which she received her first notable critical praise. She achieved recognition for her subsequent work in a supporting role in Sense and Sensibility and for her leading role in Titanic, the highest-grossing film in the world at the time. Since 2000, Winslet's performances have continued to draw positive comments from film critics, and she has been nominated for various awards for her work in such films as Quills, Iris, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Finding Neverland, Little Children, The Reader and Revolutionary Road. Her performance in the last of these prompted New York magazine critic David Edelstein to describe her as "the best English-speaking film actress of her generation". The romantic comedy The Holiday and the animated film Flushed Away are among the biggest commercial successes of her career.
