"When I was here 10 years ago with Mildred Pierce we had actually just met", she told reporters in the press room. "I knew that I was going to spend my life with this man."

"We're getting to the Emmys and I was just so in a whirlwind of having just met him that I couldn't even concentrate and I vividly remember making an absolutely appalling speech because I was not on planet earth because I had fallen head over heels in love with this person who I just met", she continued. "So to have him here, it's really quite special."

Winslet and Smith —formerly known as Ned Rocknroll— first met in 2011 and tied the knot the following year. The couple welcomed their first child together, son Bear, in 2013. The Titanic alum is also a mom to 17-year-old son Joe and 20-year-old daughter Miawho's also an actress— from previous relationships. 

During Sunday's awards ceremony, Winslet took home trophy for outstanding actress in a limited series or a movie for her role in HBO's Mare of Easttown, which marked her fourth Emmy nomination and second win. Winslet beat out fellow nominees Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You), Cynthia Erivo (Genius: Aretha), Elizabeth Olsen (WandaVision) and Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen's Gambit).

Mare of Easttown follows a police detective named Mare (Winslet), as she investigates the disappearance of a teenage mother in a Philadelphia suburb. Following her win, Winslet said that being able to play Mare meant that "our industry is changing."

"That's more important than anything else", she shared. "It's up to us to absolutely real and representing ourselves with integrity and authenticity and celebrating each other and not judging one another. If we're not doing that in our industry then nobody else has got a hope in hell."
