Kate Winslet likens her Oscar to mum's cooking prize

By Super Admin

Washington, February 25 (ANI): Kate Winslet likened her Best Actress Oscar to her mum's victory in a pickling competition at a local pub in Britain.

After having been nominated five times earlier, the actress finally won the gong for her portrayal of a German woman with a secret Nazi past in the romantic drama "The Reader".

Speaking after the Academy Awards, the 'Titanic' star added her win to her family's previous accolade at The Retreat in Reading that saw her mum taking home a bottle of vodka in place of a coveted statuette.

"My mum won a pickled onion competition in the local pub just before Christmas and the Reading Evening Post sent me a picture of her holding her jar," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"Well, Reading Evening Post, here's your next Winslet picture!" she added.

Kate also dominated this season with two Golden Globes, a Screen Actors Guild award, a British BAFTA and a handful of U.S. critics awards. (ANI)
