Default Oil leak from turbo

So I had my car, 05 Gli, on the lift today to look at my broken handbrake cable. And noticed there was oil all over the underside of like my engine area and my tranny, so I looked around and it's dripping from the bottom of my turbo. What could this be? Gasket?

could be the oil feed line to the turbo or it could be the valve cover gasket.
