Kate Winslet Says She Purposely Didn't Thank Harvey Weinstein in Oscars Acceptance Speech

Kate Winslet Says She Purposely Didn't Thank Harvey Weinstein in Oscars Acceptance Speech
Kate Winslet says she intentionally did not thank Harvey Weinstein during her Oscars acceptance speech.

When Winslet took home the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2009, for her performance in The Reader, she did not mention Weinstein, whose company financed and distributed the drama.

Speaking with the Los Angeles Times, Winslet said the omission was "absolutely deliberate."

"I remember being told, 'Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.' And I remember turning around and saying, 'No I won't. No I won't,'" she recalled. "And it was nothing to do with not being grateful. If people aren't well-behaved, why would I thank him?"

‘Dice’ Season 2 Review: Andrew Dice Clay Is the New Tony Soprano, But It’s More Bad Than Bada Bing

‘Dice’ Season 2 Review: Andrew Dice Clay Is the New Tony Soprano, But It’s More Bad Than Bada Bing
Dice” Season 2 opens with an “It’s a Wonderful Life” parody.

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Dice” Season 2. Proceed at your own behest, but IndieWire believes “Dice” is not a show that can be spoiled by sharing genre plot details.]

Titled “It’s a Miserable Life,” the premiere shoots into an alternate reality — fitting, given it airs with “Twin Peaks” in Showtime’s Sunday night lineup — after Dice, the character inspired and played by Andrew Dice Clay, is told the world would be a better place without him in it. Specifically, a rabbi screams at him, “The world would be a better place if Andrew Dice Clay had never been born!”

Be it the fervor with which the words are conveyed or the religious status of the rabbi screaming them, Dice is profoundly affected. The next thing you know, he’s waking up in a hotel room, alone, with a whole new life. He’s not a washed-up comedian anymore. He never was one.

Instead, he’s a bespectacled salesman on a trip to Las Vegas to make a

‘The Bachelorette’: Why The Show’s Parodies Are Better — Yet Hard to Separate From Reality
A grown man wears a penguin onesie. An gimmicky moron shrieks his catchphrase (which, if you happen to forget it, is emblazoned on his T-shirt).
