Kate shows a bad winner is even worse than a bad loser

Children adore being spoilt by their grandparents, but is it too much?

VERITY LUSH: Don’t blame gran for kids munching on e-numbers

Have your say

I’ve never seen Kate Winslet give a bad performance in a film – and I’ve never seen her give a good one at an awards ceremony.

She was at it again at the Emmys – gushing and giggling and whooping and shrieking and generally giving the impression that winning an award was the furthest thing from her mind.

Ms Winslet has many talents – but the perception of irony is not one of them.

She seems completely unaware that – like Dickie ‘Darling’ Attenborough - she has now become a showbusiness caricature.

She is an emoting diva of legendary proportions who seems incapable of accepting any honour with grace or dignity.

Nobody likes a bad loser – but a bad winner is even worse.
