'Jimmy Kimmel Live!': Kate Winslet Says It's Great to Win Awards

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio have been reuniting on the awards show circuit this year, and on Monday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the actress opened up about spending time with her Titanic co-star after all these years.

"People are always so excited to see Leo and myself in the same space, which at the end of the day, that's so lovely," the Steve Jobs star said. "It's been 20 years and people still get such a kick out of it. It's really quite endearing."

Winslet said she and DiCaprio still "giggle" about the hubbub over their big-screen romance in the 1997 disaster epic even though, as Kimmel pointed out, her character "let him freeze to death in the water."

"I agree," Winslet admitted. "I think he could have actually fit on that bit of door."

WATCH: Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet Reunited at the Golden Globes and 'Titanic' Fans Had a Lot of Feelings

Titanic earned Winslet an Oscar nomination for Best Actress, but it wasn't her first nom. The British actress first earned Academy recognition for her part in Emma Thompson's 1995 adaptation of Sense and Sensibility. She opened up to Kimmel about her first experience with awards season, which came completed with chaperones.

"I was 19 years old and find myself at the Academy Awards with my parents," she recalled. "All I remember is my dad going 'F*** me, it's Quincy Jones!' It really was a game of 'Spot the Famous Person.'"

These days, the actress has a much more adult presence during awards season. In fact, at Saturday's SAG Awards, she was snapped copping a feel while posing for a pic with Susan Sarandon.

"I can tell you, I'm feeling Susan Sarandon's tits," Winslet explained of the pic. "That's what's happening."

The Divergent star hilariously revealed that she didn't ask Sarandon's permission before copping a feel, even confessing that it wasn't her riskiest grab of the night! "I think I may have even felt Kristen Wiig's butt as well," she admitted.

"It's such a strange and wonderful time, awards season," Winslet reflected. "I suddenly realized recently that we find ourselves in this incredible situation, to have entered a competition that we did not choose to enter. And then, you find yourself really wanting to win."

After 20 years of nominations, the actress also said she's done pretending she doesn't want to win and won't dispense the platitudes that other stars spout around awards season.

"I'm done saying it's great to be nominated," she said with a laugh. "It is, it really is, but it's really great to win. I'm so shameless."
