IT FINALLY HAPPENED. Leonardo DiCaprio has won his very first Academy Award. Whether you were rooting for or against ‘The Revenant’, whether you think he deserved the award for his grunting and groaning as Hugh Glass or just wanted him to win a damn Oscar already, it doesn’t matter. He’s officially in the Oscar club now.

Alejandro G. Iñarritu just made Oscar history. ‘The Revenant’ filmmaker took home the Academy Award for Best Director on Sunday, the third time in the awards’ history a director has won in two consecutive years. Joseph L. Mankiewicz was the last director to win the award back-to-back in 1950 and 1951, following John Ford’s ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ and ‘How Green Was My Valley’ wins in 1941 and 1942, respectively.
Leonardo DiCaprio has never won an Oscar. We’ve heard this narrative time and time again, especially as he inches closer and closer to finally winning an Academy Award for his work in The Revenant, but it’s time for us as a people to stand up and do something about it. OK, maybe just sit down and do something about it. And by “do something” we mean play a video game. Yes, in Leo’s Red Carpet Rampage, you can finally help the unlucky actor chase down that elusive Oscar. If only you can avoid getting bumped by Lady Gaga.
Don’t you know that there are starving actors who have never known the joy of winning an Oscar? Actors like Leonardo DiCaprio, who has long suffered (figuratively and literally) for the chance to have what so many take for granted. For the small price of just one pair of gold earrings or maybe an old silver necklace, you can help actors like Leo here finally get the Oscar he deserves. Please, won’t you think of Leo?
Leonardo DiCaprio arguably went Peak Leo with The Revenant, a film that is essentially a two-hour frontier-style reimagining of his quaalude scene in The Wolf of Wall Street. While we wait to find out whether all his suffering and bison liver-eating and vape withdrawals will pay off with a long-deserved Oscar, DiCaprio is already going back to work with one of the screenwriters of The Revenant on a new film that will presumably torture the actor once more.
Seemingly sensing a previously untapped source of income, Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to produce a YA adaptation of his very own. The actor and producer's Appian Way banner is partnering with Paramount to back Sandcastle Empire, a climate change-centric YA tale from author Kayla Olson. As with most YA properties, this one features a female lead and a dystopian future — surprise!
Leonardo DiCaprio is many things: a great actor, a philanthropist, a member of the famous P—y Posse, a quick draw with a water gun…and apparently an expert on Russian history. The actor has portrayed many very flawed characters based on very flawed real-life men, but there’s one man he hasn’t played yet: Russian President Vladimir Putin.

By the year 1999, a time when ‘Star Wars’ devotees waited with bated breath for the triumphant return of their most cherished franchise with not one but three new installments, Leonardo DiCaprio had already done some solid work. He had broken out big as a youngster in role alongside Robert De Niro and Johnny Depp in ‘This Boy’s Life’ and ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,’ respectively. He had proven his chops as an actor with a meaty role in ‘The Basketball Diaries’ and attained full sex-icon status through dreamboat appearances in ‘Romeo + Juliet’ as well as ‘Titanic,’ which also made DiCaprio one of the most highly bankable stars on the planet.
