After finally winning her Oscar for "The Reader" at the start of 2009, Kate Winslet's had a little break from awards-bait movies. Not that she's avoided the glitter altogether -- she won an Emmy, deservedly, for her starring role in Todd Haynes' "Mildred Pierce," and has two Golden Globe nominations this weekend, both for that and for her turn in "Carnage." But the latter is an atypical kind of role for the star, an acerbic dark comedy, and most of her other choices of late, like Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion" and a role in portmanteau comedy "Movie 43" have been designed to let her have a little fun, rather than court awards voters.
