There was no doubt in anyone’s mind that Leonardo DiCaprio was going to win Best Actor (though, Supporting Actor shocker, Mark Rylance, may have quickened some people’s pulses just a bit). But it was pretty much Leo’s to lose so we all knew the chances of that were unlikely.
But, please. Kate Winslet didn’t have a doubt, saying in previous awards shows that she was merely showing up to support her Titanic co-star.
They walked the red carpet like a couple, posing and hugging and whispering and looking super-adorable and super-lovey-dovey. Hmm, wonder how Kate’s husband, Ned Rocknroll, feels about that?
There’s a shot of Kate coming over to greet Leo’s mom, Irmelin, and you just know Winslet’s been over to DiCaprio’s place and had a meal or 10 with his folks.
And look at this quick kiss, just because.
But it was her reaction to Leo’s win and his acceptance speech that shows what true friendship is all about.
Could she be any cuter? (And Ned seems happy too.)
Jack and Rose (and Leo and Kate) 4ever.
