Oscars 2016: Leonardo Dicaprio Wins First Oscar, See The Full List Of Winners!
A day Leonardo DiCaprio will never forget!
Leonardo DiCaprio has finally won his first Academy Award for his lead role in The Revenant after four previous nominations for acting and one for producing. It was Leo’s night — it was as if everyone, including him, was waiting for the “big reveal” that really wasn’t a surprise at all.
DiCaprio, 41, had his speech memorized and rehearsed and he didn’t mispronounce “indigenous” this time. He preached “climate change is real” meanwhile, the actor frequently hops on private jets and rents yachts to impress the ladies and his friends 🙁
His director, Alejandro G. Inarritu, won for best director — the second year in a row! Last year, the Mexican director won Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture for Birdman.
Also at the top of the heap tonight were Spotlight, taking Best Picture and Best Screenplay. The film was a love story to investigative journalists covering the abuse scandal of the Catholic church; it swept the Independent Spirit Awards yesterday. Mad Max: Fury Road won six prizes. Brie Larson won for Best Actress for her role in The Room, which most critics had predicted. Alicia Vikander won Best Supporting Actress for The Danish Girl, while her male counterpart was Mark Rylance for Bridge of Spies.
