When Leonardo DiCaprio finally took home an Oscar Sunday night for his role in The Revenant, he received a standing ovation and tons of support from fans on social media. He also got a very emotional reaction from his Titanic co-star and longtime pal Kate Winslet.

Winslet, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Steve Jobs, was briefly caught on camera during DiCaprio’s big moment:

She’s nearly in tears. She wanted this to happen so badly.

“I think you can sort of feel it, and I think that everyone wants it for [DiCaprio],” Winslet had told BBC News back in January. “It would be amazing … You can sort of feel the temperature. It’s probably going to be Leo’s year.”

Winslet didn’t end up winning Best Supporting Actress, but clearly she should win Best Super-Dramatic Face During Friend’s Acceptance Speech.
