Winslet on DiCaprio Oscar nomination: ‘It’s going to be Leo’s year’
Leonardo DiCaprio has been nominated five times for an Oscar award and Kate Winslet, his co-star in the 1997 blockbuster “Titanic”, says he may finally win the golden statuette next month.
DiCaprio got a nod for his lead role in survival drama “The Revenant”, facing competition from Bryan Cranston for “Trumbo”, Matt Damon for “The Martian”, Eddie Redmayne for “The Danish Girl” and Winslet’s “Steve Jobs” co-star Michael Fassbender.
DiCaprio, 41, won a Golden Globe for “The Revenant” and many critics think he’ll win the best actor Oscar at the Academy Awards ceremony on Feb. 28.
“I do think it probably will be, I think you can sort of feel it. And I think that everyone wants it for him and it would be amazing,” Winslet told Reuters at the Critics’ Circle Film Awards in London on Sunday night.
“But it’s also slightly difficult for me too because Michael Fassbender has been nominated … and I think his performance is so extraordinary. But … I think you can sort of feel the temperature, it’s probably going to be Leo’s year.”
