Kate, 47, and Mia, 22, were both nominated for BAFTAs for their roles in I Am Ruth, of which the Titanic actress took home the award for Best Actress for her critically-acclaimed performance.

During her acceptance speech, Kate said: "If I could cut this in half, I would give the other half to my daughter Mia Threapleton. We did this together, kiddo," she said, as Mia was seen wiping tears from her eyes from her seat during her mother's speech. 

"There were days when it was agony for her to dig as deeply as she did into very frightening emotional territory sometimes and it took my breath away."
