Winslet To Take 'Lucky Charms' To Oscars

KATE WINSLET believes her parents' presence at Sunday's (27FEB05) OSCAR ceremony (05) will ensure she takes home the Best Actress trophy.

The British beauty has taken her "lucky charms", mother SALLY and father ROGER, to the ACADEMY AWARDS three times and is counting on her talisman to turn her fourth nomination since 1996 into a golden statue this weekend.

Winslet is competing against HILARY SWANK, ANNETTE BENING, CATALINA SANDINO MORENO and IMELDA STAUNTON for the Best Actress award for her performance as free-spirited CLEMENTINE KRUCZYNSKI in ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND.

The 29-year-old actress says, "They've been with me to all the Oscar ceremonies and the first thing I did after hearing of my nomination was to call them and say, 'Get your frocks ready, you're coming over.'

"Well, my dad's not wearing a frock, of course, but he did say he was going on a diet."

Winslet is shocked the film has had so much resonance with Academy voters, and comments, "This film came out nearly a year ago and it's amazing people remembered it, but there's something about my character Clementine, that sticks with you.

"She has an amazing spirit and I think people appreciate love stories that are original and very different from the more formulaic stuff you get from the studios."

Winslet was first nominated for Best Actress in 1998's TITANIC, and has received two nominations for Best Supporting Actress, for SENSE AND SENSIBILITY in 1996 and IRIS in 2002.
