Kate Winslet is a firm believer that her Titanic costar, Leonardo DiCaprio, will take home the Best Actor Oscar for his role in The Revenant.

It was while speaking at the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards this weekend Winslet said she thinks even Leonardo DiCaprio believes he will win the Oscar.
“I honestly would be surprised if it isn’t (Leonardo’s year) which would be amazing,” she told Sky News.
“I mean he is up against my friend Michael Fassbender who was obviously in Steve Jobs and played Steve Jobs. Michael gives such an extraordinary performance and I was there watching him work every day,” Kate Winslet said.
“But I think that Michael himself actually can feel as well that it is possibly going to be Leo’s year and he’s, like everyone, such a huge admirer of Leo.”
“So I’d be very surprised if it doesn’t happen finally for him,” she shared.

Leonardo DiCaprio has never won an Oscar. Critics have praised his role as the fur trapper in The Revenant enough that others have taken notice, too, even if they haven’t yet seen the film.
Kate Winslet is up for an Oscar, too. She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Joanna Hoffman in Steve Jobs.
Have you seen Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant? Do you agree with Kate Winslet that he is likely to win the Oscar for Best Actor?
