Emmys 2011: Kate Winslet makes no apologies for giddy speeches
When asked about her tendency to be slightly over-the-top in her speeches, Winslet made no apologies to the haters.
"I was truly, extremely unprepared, and I didn't think I would win at all," she said. "I'm so thrilled to have won this. It just comes out the way it comes out. There's not a huge amount you can do about it."
Winslet was awarded lead actress in a miniseries or movie for the title role in HBO's five-part miniseries "Mildred Pierce." Sure, the gold statuette was nice. But it was more of a thrill to share screen time with costar -- and fellow winner -- Guy Pearce.
"I've had a crush on Guy Pearce since I was 11 years old."
-- Yvonne Villarreal
