Kate Winslet in The Reader

While it’s looking pretty clear that will take home the Oscar later this month, the race for Best Actor and Best Actress remains a bit muddy.

At yesterday’s Orange British Academy Film Awards, Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) and Kate Winslet (The Reader) both took home the top honors for acting. Although this is similar to how they performed at the Golden Globes, neither actor was a winner at the recent SAG Awards. (Sean Penn and Meryl Streep took home the statues that evening.)
