A kiss from Kate - Winslet drops a smacker as Hollywood recognises finest

Kate Winslet was among the big winners at the Hollywood Film Awards - and celebrated by kissing Allison Janney on stage.

The actress, who starred in Mountain Between Us, was presented with the Best Actress award by Shailene Woodley for her role in Woody Allen's Wonder Wheel at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday and then praised Allison, calling her up from her seat for a smooch.

She said: "I know I don't really know you, but I know I just want to be you. I do, or just stroke you or something. I mean, we could always kiss, maybe? Ah, it's gonna happen! This is an exciting moment!"

Allison, who won the Best Supporting Actress gong for I, Tonya, got up from her seat and said: "It's happening now."

She then took to the stage and Kate put her hands on the former West Wing actress' cheeks as she planted a smacker on her lips.

Jake Gyllenhaal was another big winner on the night, taking home the Best Actor prize for his portrayal in Stronger of Jeff Bauman, a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing, and he praised him in an emotional speech.

He told the audience: "We've always had this compulsive need for heroes, the need to transform ordinary humans into superhumans, but Jeff Bauman never wanted to be a hero.

"I don't know if I could've found the courage to do what Jeff did in real life, but I know something now that I didn't know then - if we could find in ourselves the strength that Jeff found, we just might not need heroes."

Gary Oldman, who received the Hollywood Career Achievement Award, said, "I began my career almost 40 years ago, and at every juncture, some significant person or turn of fate pushed me along. I've had great fortune in my career and I feel every ounce of that privilege."
