Adele backs Leonardo DiCaprio Oscar win

ADELE is backing Leonardo DiCaprio to triumph at tonight's Oscars.

The 'Hello' hitmaker - who has had her own share of awards success this week, picking up four prizes at the BRIT Awards - has tweeted her support for the 41-year-old actor, who is expected to finally take home the Best Actor statuette at the Academy Awards.

Posting a picture of herself superimposed in front of the clock from 'Titanic' - the 1997 movie in which Leonardo played Jack Dawson - Adele wrote on Twitter: "Good luck Leo! Everyone loves you because you're the best. Meet me at the clock anytime bruv X (sic)"

And Adele isn't the only person backing Leonardo to win tonight.

Eddie Redmayne - who picked up the Best Actor Oscar for 'The Theory of Everything' last year - may be up for the accolade again thanks to his turn in 'The Danish Girl', but he thinks 'The Revenant' actor will take home the award.

He said: "In my mind it is pretty much certainly Leo's year and he really deserve s it.

"I am going along to enjoy the night. To be nominated again is just the greatest honour and especially in that company of actors."

Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon and Michael Fassbender will also battle it out in the category for 'Trumbo', 'The Martian' and 'Steve Jobs' respectively.
