A kiss between Kate Winslet and Allison Janney stole the limelight at the Hollywood Film Awards, the first major ceremony of the annual awards season.
Winslet, 42, picked up the Hollywood actress award for her role in Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel at the event and referred to Janney in her acceptance speech.
“Allison Janney is in this room, I know I don’t really know you, but I just want to be you, I do,” Winslet said to Janney, who was seated in the audience.
“Or just stroke you or something … I mean, we could always kiss, maybe?”
Janney hopped out of her seat and ran to the stage as a delighted Winslet said: “Oh, it’s going to happen!”
The West Wing star Janney, 57, then kissed Winslet on the lips and gave her a hug as the audience cheered.
“Thank you very much,” Winslet said. “Now I’m a little bit breathless.”
