BAFTA TV Awards 2023: ‘Titanic’ Fame Kate Winslet Wins Best Actress For ‘I Am Ruth’ | People News

Washington: ‘Titanic’ fame star Kate Winslet has been adjudged as the best leading actress at BAFTV TV Awards 2023. Kate marked her first television BAFTA win with her performance in the popular drama series ‘I Am Ruth’. 

According to Deadline, a US-based media house, the actor has three BAFTA awards in her career as an actor. She won against a highly competitive nomination consisting of Billie Piper (I Hate Suzie Too), ‘Imelda Staunton for the historical drama ‘Crown’, Maxine Peake (Anne), Vicky McClure (Without Sin) and ‘Happy Valley’ protagonist Sarah Lancashire. The show for which Winslet took BAFTA home revolves around the story of a relationship between a mother and her daughter who is facing mental health issues due to the social media era of her life. 

Taking up to the stage in order to deliver her acceptance speech Kate said, “We don’t want it and we want our children back. We don’t want to lie awake terrified for our children’s mental health. To any young people who are listening, please ask for help, there is no shame in admitting you need support, just ask for it.” 

Winslet turned the announcement into a wholesome moment by stating if the award can be cut in half as she would have loved to share it with her daughter. Winslet’s real-life daughter plays her on-screen daughter too in the show and the duo has received positive reviews regarding the chemistry between the actors. 

“The space to tell women’s stories,” added Kate to give respect to show creator Dominic Savage. “This means a great deal as it means small British TV dramas can still be weighty,” said Kate as she concluded her speech. The BAFTA TV Awards took place on Sunday 14 May.
