Kate made her screen debut in 1998. She first earned notice for her work in 200 Cigarettes (1999), an ensemble film that cast her as naive Cindy out on a date with caddish Jack (Jay Mohr). Although the film proved to be a substantial critical and commercial disappointment, Hudson's performance was singled out for some of the scant praise the film did receive.
The following year, Kate Hudson could be seen starring opposite
fellow up-and-comer Joshua Jackson in Gossip, a drama
centered on the disastrous side effects of rumor-mongering
on a college campus.
If critical recognition had eluded her in the past, it certainly caught-up with her at the 2000 Golden Globe Awards, where Kate Hudson took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her performance in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous. Engulfed in the Hollywood hype machine following her winning role in Almost Famous, it seemed as if Kate was set to follow her mother in taking the film industry by storm.
After soaking in her newfound fame in the early years of
the new millennium, Hudson emerged from a whirlwind schedule
of fashion shoots and awards shows to appear in the
/romantic /war drama The Four Feathers in 2002. Though The
Four Feathers was quickly and unceremoniously relegated to
box-office obscurity, Kate fired back with an almost
surefire hit when she starred opposite quirky heartthrob
Matthew McConaughey in the /romantic comedy How to Lose a
Guy in 10 Days (2003).
