KATE WINSLET joined a host of stars at the Los Angeles Critics' Association to collect her award for Best Supporting Actress. A beaming Winslet was presented with the accolade for her role in IRIS (2001) at the awards dinner in Santa Monica, where other winners including SISSY SPACEK, Denzel Washington and DAVID LYNCH also collected their gongs.
Lynch was named Best Director for his film Mulholland Drive (2001), and thanked film critics for the "buzz" surrounding the movie while jokingly playing a tape recording of a buzzing noise. Director TODD FIELD accepted the award for Best Picture for In the Bedroom (2001). Other stars at the awards included LAURA HARRING, NAOMI WATTS, WILLIAM MAPOTHER, MARISA TOMEI and NICK STAHL.
