Leonardo DiCaprio Wins His First Oscar After 20 Years

We literally have no words to describe what it felt like to watch Leonardo DiCaprio get his name called and wins his very first Academy Award. It’s been over two decades guys! It was way back in 1994 that Leonardo DiCaprio got his first nomination for his work in ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’, and he’s been waiting for that big moment ever since. When 2015 Best Actress winner Julianne Moore read the name “Leonardo DiCaprio,” this is what it literally felt like below.

The reaction from his fellow actors and actresses at the Dolby Theatre was unreal. Clearly we are not alone in this. From tweets to messages before and after the win. Well, the wait is finally over! ‘Even before he rose from his chair, they were up on their feet giving the standing ovation they’d been waiting all evening for’. And the Hollywood elite aren’t the only ones who were super excited about this win, the whole Internet literally broke. This moment is legendary. After four previous acting nominations, Leonardo DiCaprio’s portrayal of a betrayed 19th-century frontiersman seeking revenge in The Revenant has won him his first Academy Award.

The 41-year-old actor has been the favourite to win after picking up both a Golden Globe and a Bafta for his performance. ‘The film, which has won a number of awards at this year’s ceremony, tells the true story of Hugh Glass, who battled his way through the wilderness after being left for dead’.

We are truly happy and excited for this handsome talented man right here.
