Kate Winslet Tearfully Asks Crowd to Give Alan Rickman a Standing Ovation as She Receives Supporting Actress Award at the LCCA in Rupert Sanderson Pumps

People all over the world mourned the passing of Alan Rickman, the actor who played the love-to-hate character Professor Snape in “Harry Potter,” and naturally, the people whose lives he has touched personally have been having a harder time accepting it.

One such person is Kate Winslet, who tearfully commemorated the actor during her Supporting Actress of the Year award at the London Critics Circle Awards.

Kate wore a simple flared dress with a lasercut hem by Alaïa, which she paired with gorgeous mesh pumps by Rupert Sanderson.

Whether or not this surprisingly dark awards season look was a sign of mourning for the late actor, Kate looked stellar in this understated look.

Kate thanked people for her award before tearfully sharing that the week of Alan’s passing had been horrible. She then asked the people to stand up and applaud the late actor before thanking everyone and composing herself.

Not wanting to end her speech on a sad note, Kate decided to share a funny story about Alan from when she was only 19 years old. Watch her story below:
