Leonardo DiCaprio Finally Bags an Oscar
The Oscars started with Chris Rock introducing himself as host of the 88th Academy Awards, “otherwise known as the white People’s Choice Awards”,since there were no actors of colour nominated, but the highlight of last night was definitely Leo winning in the category of Best Actor in a Leading Role.
The internet is breaking, and Kimmy K is jealous. Leonardo DiCaprio has finally won his first Oscar for his Performance in a Leading Role in the survival epic The Revenant. It took him 6 Oscar nominations, starting from his breakthrough movie, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape to finally grab one of the statuettes for himself.
In the category where he was nominated along with great performances by Eddie Redmayne, Michael Fassbender, Bryan Cranston and Matt Damon, Leo made sure he passed on the message of protecting the nature Earth and working towards a better future whilst accepting his award.
After being part of various memes and pop culture references, everyone is going gaga on the internet over his win. Commenting on the Oscars, he has always said that it is something he “would love to win”, but has also known that it’s “beyond his control”. And thus, only believed in giving his 100%.
Leo has been part of great movies like This Boy's Life ( for which role he was hand picked by Robert Di Niro ), The Basketball Diaries, Titanic, The Aviator, The Wolf of Wall Street, and the page would fill naming his other amazing works.
Oscar or not, Leo's fans would still have loved him, and he would still continue doing great movies. Speaking of which, do keep an eye out for his upcoming project, 'Live by Night'.
