Trivia

Kate Winslet tells Andy (Ricky Gervais) in one scene that the key to winning an Oscar is to do a Holocaust film. Less than four years later, she would go on to win her first Academy Award playing an Auschwitz guard in The Reader (2008), a post-Holocaust drama. See more »

Quotes

Andy Millman: I think, you know, you doing this is so commendable - you know, using your profile to keep the message alive about the Holocaust.
Kate Winslet: My God, I'm not doing it for that. And I don't think we really need another film about the Holocaust, do we? It's like, how many have there been? You know, we get it - it was grim, move on. No, I'm doing it because I've noticed that if you do a film about the Holocaust - guaranteed Oscar!

Perfection
21 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode is not only my favorite from "Extras," but easily one of my favorite comedic episodes from any series ever to appear on television. The writing is superb, Ricky Gervais and the support cast are hilarious, and Kate Winslet *defines* what "best guest performance by an actress" truly means. I was quite puzzled that she did not win the Emmy for that very category in which she was nominated. I was also surprised that the writing did not win the Emmy it was nominated for as well.

Even if you were to remove Kate's scenes, the rest of the episode is just as hilarious. Gervais tackles religion, the Holocaust, and even the handicapped. He manages to offend, but tastefully (which I never thought possible), all of the above.

Overall, "Extras" was a terrific and thoroughly entertaining series, but this episode really rockets into the stratosphere. I can't say enough good things about it.

Its script should be used as the "textbook example" of comic short writing for all screenplay courses.

Did I mention that I liked it?
