Kate Winslet has won a Golden Globe for the best supporting actress category at the 73rd Golden Globes Awards held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. The actress was presented with the prize for her role as Joanna Hoffman in biopic Steve Jobs.

"What an incredible year for women in film," Kate Winslet, who is a 10-time nominee of the Golden Globe, said as she accepted her award on last night (10 January). "These categories are so crowded and crammed with incredible skill and integrity and I feel prouder than ever to be included this year," she added.

The 40-year-old British actress, who had a double win at the Golden Globe as best actress in Revolutionary Road and as best supporting actress for The Reader in 2009, thanked her husband Ned Rocknroll in her accepting speech, calling him "wonderful". She also thanked the Steve Jobs crew including her co-star Michael Fassbender and director Danny Boyle among others.

Winslet was nominated alongside Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), Helen Mirren (Trumbo), Jane Fonda (Youth) and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) in the best performance by an actress in a supporting role in any motion picture.

The Golden Globes 2016 was hosted by English comedian Ricky Gervais for the fourth consecutive year. The star-studded ceremony was aired live on NBC. Some of the presenters at the annual award gala by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association included Mel Gibson, Tom Hanks and Lady Gaga.
