is repeatedly disappointed when awards bosses fail to nominate her The Constant Gardener
co-star Ralph Fiennes
, especially when now she has won so many awards. The pregnant beauty won a Golden Globe on Jan. 26 and a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award last night for her performance as Tessa Quayle in the gritty drama, but is baffled as to why Fiennes has been ignored.
She says, "It's beyond my comprehension (why Fiennes has been overlooked). "I feel that any award or any acclaim I get I share with him 50-50."

and a teenage Angela Lansbury
in her film debut. It garnered seven Oscar nominations and won two. Cast details for the updated remake, to be set in California, have not been announced.
