Gervais fixes Winslet's gong
Of course the real winner at Sunday's Golden Globe bonaztravaganza was Ricky Gervais, who cast Kate Winslet in a 2005 episode of his well-received celebrity satire Extras, in which Winslet's jaded superstar plays a nun in a Holocaust movie ('How many more movies do we need about the Holocaust? I mean, we get it, it was grim, move on'). Alluding to that series during the ceremony, Gervais is reported to have said, I told you do a Holocaust movie and the awards come, didn't I?
