If Kate Winslet, who won a Golden Globe for this performance, does not win the Oscar for the same role, then there is no justice in the world. She was absolutely incredible in a role that had her go from predator, to victim; from seemingly oblivious to the magnitude of what she did, to someone willing to take blame that...
