LEO FINALLY WINS HIS FIRST OSCAR LAST NIGHT AT THE OSCAR ACADEMY AWARDS 2016!
As sure as the sun, the moon, and most basic laws of modern physics, Leonardo DiCaprio deserved an Oscar millions of decades ago, but as they say, “It always feels better when you’ve waited enough.”
Born in 1974 without a statuette, Leonardo Willhelm DiCaprio has starred in over two dozen films, including Gangs of New York and The Basketball Diaries. He once had an uncredited role as Darlene’s classmate in a 1991 episode of Roseanne. To date, DiCaprio has won over 40 awards and has been nominated six times for an Oscar. This is his first win. THE CURSE IS BROKEN!
Presenter Julianne Moore, waited a respectable amount of time before announcing DiCaprio’s name, as if to see if she could make time itself pause briefly in anticipation.
Dicaprio won an Award for Best Actor for his role in “The Revenant”!
The movie talked about “The Revenant” who takes the struggle not to die and really, really goes with it. In the film DiCaprio plays Hugh Glass, a real-life 1820s fur trapper who got mauled by a bear, was robbed and abandoned by his companions, and then spent months crawling to safety through the untamed American wilderness. As for what it took to play the part of Glass, well, let’s just say it involved a lot of snow, bearskins, and numb digits.
The production of the film, directed by a fresh-off-Birdman Alejandro Iñárritu, was so complicated and geographically challenging that at times the moviemakers themselves needed to claw and scrape to keep it alive.
Not to mention Leo’s incredible speech about climate change.
“Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work together and stop procrastinating,” he said in the most passionate moment of his speech. “We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters … but who speak for all of humanity,” Leo said.
“Let us not take our planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted,” he concluded.
