Kate Winslet thinks it's "probably going to be Leo's year" to win the Oscar for Best Actor.

Leonardo DiCaprio is nominated for his role in "The Revenant," and his former "Titanic" costar believes that his performance will be enough to finally net him the award.

"I think you can sort of feel it, and I think that everyone wants it for him," she told BBC News while attending this weekend's London Critics Circle Film Awards. "It would be amazing."

However, the actress in "Steve Jobs," the film for which she won the award for Best Supporting Actress at the Critics' Choice Awards this weekend, said she's in a tough position because her costar Michael Fassbender is also nominated in the same category.


"It's also slightly difficult for me too, because Michael Fassbender has been nominated and I was his righthand woman for three months whilst we were making 'Steve Jobs' and I saw how hard he worked," she said. "I think his performance is so extraordinary. But I think, yeah, you can sort of feel the temperature. It's probably going to be Leo's year."

DiCaprio has been nominated for an Oscar five times, including his roles in "The Wolf of Wall Street" and "Blood Diamond," but has yet to actually win one.

The 88th Academy Awards will take place on Feb. 28.
