Remember when Leonardo DiCaprio gave the ultimate side eye to Lady Gaga at the Golden Globes? Well, it appears as if the 29-year-old singer is completely over the award show “drama.” On Sunday, Gaga took to Twitter to reveal that she’s rooting for DiCaprio to win his first Oscar at the 88th Academy Awards.
“Don’t know about u but I’m rooting for LEO!” she tweeted.

DiCaprio, 41, is nominated for best actor for his role as Hugh Glass in “The Revenant.” He’s up against Bryan Cranston (“Trumbo”), Matt Damon (“The Martian”), Michael Fassbender (“Steve Jobs”) and Eddie Redmayne (“The Danish Girl”).
While many celebrities and film industry workers have been vocal about their desire for DiCaprio to take home his first Oscar at this year’s award show, Gaga’s support may come as a surprise. There was a reported “feud” between the two stars after the Golden Globes on Jan. 10. It all started when Gaga won the Golden Globe for best performance by an actress in a limited series or motion picture made for television. On her way up to the stage to accept the award, the singer and actress accidentally knocked into DiCaprio. The movement “scared” DiCaprio, and a video of his facial expression went viral.
After the incident, DiCaprio explained in an interview that he was simply surprised by the accidental knock and didn’t mean anything negative by the look. However, rumors still surfaced that Gaga’s fiancé, “Chicago Fire” star Taylor Kinney, was upset with the actor. DiCaprio said that those rumors couldn’t be further from the truth.
“We were laughing about it afterwards,” he told ITV’s “This Morning” (via Us Weekly) after the Golden Globes. “I actually had no idea who was passing me or what was going on, but that was a funny little bit that went around. We were laughing at it at the after-party!”
Lady Gaga and Leonardo DiCaprio might come face to face again tonight at the Oscars. Lady Gaga is nominated for best original song for “Til It Happens To You” from “The Hunting Ground.”
