4 of 15
British actress Kate Winslet is setting records. At age 31, she has already been nominated for five Oscars®—the most for someone her age in Academy history! "I do certainly feel overwhelmed just when I hear you say that I'm the youngest person to have been nominated that many times," Kate says. "That's really a spectacular feeling."

Kate's nominated films include Titanic, Sense and Sensibility, Iris, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and this year's Little Children.

Kate says to have been so successful in her career is a dream come true. "I'm a girl who grew up in a small town outside of London and I was told as a teenager that I may have a career in acting if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts," Kate says. "And here I am, and that's an amazing feeling."
