VIDEO: Eddie Redmayne backs Leo to win Best Actor Oscar

Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne has backed his rival Leonardo DiCaprio to take home this year's Best Actor prize. Redmayne, who won in 2015 for his portrayal of Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, is nominated for the second year in a row for his role as transgender artist Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl. DiCaprio, who has never won an Oscar despite numerous nominations, received a nod in the same category for his role as a fur trapper in The Revenant.
