Kate Winslet has confessed she’s not even thought about bagging another Oscar as her mind is too busy with her third pregnancy.
The 38-year-old actress was in London tonight for the premier of her new movie Labor Day.
She has previously scooped an Oscar for her portrayal of a Nazi war criminal in the 2008 film The Reader.
“It hasn’t even crossed my mind, I’m so absorbed in baby. Awards season is always a huge amount of fun whether you’re a part of it or not.
“It’s always really exciting seeing what films are coming and a lot of new talent as well. I think this year is a really exciting year for film,” she told Sky News.
Labor Day tells the story of depressed single mom Adele (played by Kate) and her son Henry after they offer a wounded, fearsome man a ride. As police search town for the escaped convict, the mother and son gradually learn his true story as their options become increasingly limited.
Co-starring Josh Brolin and Tobey Maguire, the film has already been well received by critics.
Kate’s third child will be the Revolutionary Road star’s first with her husband Ned Rocknroll, the nephew of Sir Richard Branson.
She has two children from her two former marriages, 12-year-old Mia from her marriage to Jim Threapleton, and Joe, nine from her marriage to Sam Mendes.

Kate Winslet won’t ever take her husband’s surname.
The actress married Ned Rocknroll in a private ceremony last December and they are currently expecting a child together.
While it may be tradition to change the surname, Kate has now revealed it was never on the cards for her.
“I was never going to change my name to Rocknroll. I’ve never changed my name to anything so I didn’t see a reason to start now,” the star told British newspaper The Telegraph.
“I quite like Kate Winslet; in fact I think it’s very flashy. I’m proud of my name because I’m one of three girls and we have one boy in our family so essentially the only person who is going to carry the name along is my brother and he doesn’t have any children at the moment.”
It’s the third marriage for Kate, who was previously married to directors Sam Mendes and Jim Threapleton.
Despite the failed romances, she has never become jaded about her happily ever after.
“Of course I still believe in love. It’s up there with great food and the love for one’s child,” she enthused.
“My parents have been very happily married for well over 40 years now so to have grown up with that level of togetherness in the home was definitely something that was important to me and I’m sure I still carry that.”
Kate divorced Jim, who she has daughter Mia with, in 2001, after three years of marriage.
She was married to Sam between 2003 and 2010 and they have son Joe together.
