Kate Winslet wins best actress in mini-series Emmy

테스트

LOS ANGELES - British actress Kate Winslet won the best actress in a mini-series Emmy, for her role in period drama “Mildred Pierce.”

The Oscar-winning star plays a divorcee single mother who opens a restaurant to survive in the Great Depression in the drama, for which her English-born co-star Guy Pearce won best supporting actor Emmy moments earlier.

Winslet gave a short acceptance speech saying she “didn’t think we were going to win anything” - until her gong it had been having a disappointing night - before thanking her mother.

Winslet’s success came on a big night for another British period drama, “Downton Abbey.”

The show won the best mini-series Emmy, while veteran Maggie Smith won best supporting actress and Julian Fellowes, who wrote the British period drama, best writer of a mini-series.

Brian Percival also won best director for “Downton Abbey,” which tells the story of the aristocratic Crawley family in the stately home of the show’s name.
