Oscars: Kate Winslet Tears Up During Leonardo DiCaprio's Acceptance Speech

The 'Titanic' co-stars embraced after his name was read as best actor in a leading role, marking his first Oscar win.

Among the many people rooting for Leonardo DiCaprio to win an Oscar on Sunday night was his Titanic co-star Kate Winslet.

Many thought DiCaprio was snubbed when he didn't receive an Oscar nom for the 1997 movie (Winslet was nominated for best supporting actress for the film). A previous nominee for 1993's What's Eating Gilbert Grape, DiCaprio did go on to earn four more noms, for 2004's The Aviator, 2006's Blood Diamond and 2013's The Wolf of Wall Street (as a producer and star).

After his name was called for best actor for his performance in The Revenant on Sunday night, Winslet became visibly emotional during his acceptance speech.

Watch Winslet's reaction, above, at the 0:28 mark.

Photographers also caught the two stars catching up inside the Dolby Theatre.
