Kate Winslet, who has been close friends with the 41-year-old since the two costarred in 1997's Titanic, was adamant about attending the awards show this year to support her bestie. "I feel very strongly that it may possibly be Leo's year and he's my closest friend in the world and I just couldn't imagine not being there to support him, and I think those are reasons enough really to show my face."

Other celebs have been quick to vocalize their support during the awards season, including Claire Danes, who said "he's been a genius for ages," while on the red carpet at the SAG Awards.

Even Downton Abbey's Maggie Smith chimed in, saying that she's “been rooting and voting for [Leo] since Gilbert Grape.”

Leo's role in What's Eating Gilbert Grape was, in fact, his first Oscar nomination, which he earned a whopping 22 years ago. Since then he has received nods for The Aviator (2005), Blood Diamond (2007),The Wolf of Wall Street (2014) and, of course, this year's The Revenant which has been cleaning up all season long. Among many others, Leo had taken home the prize from the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the BAFTAs.
