Their hearts will go on! Leonardo DiCaprio accepted his first-ever Screen Actors Guild Award at the 2016 ceremony on Saturday, January 30, for The Revenant, and his former costar and longtime pal Kate Winslet was among the first to congratulate him.
After Julianne Moore announced DiCaprio’s name, the Golden Globe winner rose to take his place at the podium as his fellow actors gave him a standing ovation. But before he made his way to the stage, he stopped to hug his Titanic and Revolutionary Road leading lady, who was already on her feet and cheering wildly.
DiCaprio, 41, was previously nominated for SAG Awards in 1997, 1998, 2005, 2007 and 2012, but this is his first win. He also won a Golden Globe earlier this month, and is nominated for an Oscar at the upcoming 2016 ceremony in February.
Winslet, 40, is rooting for her friend to take it all. Earlier on Saturday, she told E!’s Giuliana Rancic that she’s more invested in DiCaprio’s nominations than her own.
“I was shocked!” she said of winning the Globe for her supporting role in Steve Jobs. “To be honest with you, [it was] because I’ve been so focused on Leo and him winning everything and being so excited for him.”
