Kate Winslet backs 'Titanic' co-star Leo DiCaprio to win Oscar
Winslet, 40, said she would be ‘surprised’ if DiCaprio did not land an Oscar on his sixth nomination
Kate Winslet tipped her “Titanic” co-star Leonardo DiCaprio to win this year’s best actor Oscar, though he lost out at the British film critics’ awards on Sunday.
Winslet, 40, said she would be “surprised” if DiCaprio did not land an Oscar on his sixth nomination when the Academy Awards roll around in Hollywood on February 28.
Speaking on the red carpet at the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards at the city’s May Fair Hotel, she said she thought it was “probably going to be Leo’s year”.
“You can sort of feel it and I think everyone wants it for him,” she said.
“It would be amazing. It’s also quite difficult for me too because Michael Fassbender is also nominated and I was his right hand woman for three months making ‘Steve Jobs’. I saw how hard he worked and I thought his performance was extraordinary.
“But I think you can feel the temperature and it’s probably going to be Leo’s year.”
At the 36th London Critics’ Circle Film Awards, “The Revenant” star DiCaprio lost out to British veteran Tom Courtenay, 78, for his role in British drama “45 Years”.
