Kate Winslet Eyes Bafta Double

KATE WINSLET is in line to follow her double success at the Golden Globes by repeating the trick at the Baftas.

Nominated today for roles in the same films for which she gained the two Globes – Revolutionary Road and The Reader – Winslet is also up against some of the same rivals, including Angelina Jolie, whose name she forgot during her acceptance speech.

This time, though, both the nods are in the Best Actress category, so the 33-year-old is also up against herself.

Elsewhere, Slumdog Millionaire grabbed a whopping 11 nominations, including Best Film and Best Director and is matched on that score by Benjamin Button; the Dark Knight claimed nine; Clint Eastwood’s Changeling eight and Frost/Nixon six.
