Leonardo DiCaprio can well say ‘I am the King of the World’ for real , 18 years after ‘Titanic’s release. The reticent actor finally won the Academy Award for the Best Actor for his movie ‘The Reverant’ (2015). The movie also fetched the ‘Best Director’ award for Alejandro González Iñárritu. He also won the Golden Globes for the Best Actor (Drama) for The Revenant.
DiCaprio had not won the Oscars for a long time, considering most of his movie had Oscar-worthy performances. He was nominated for the Best Actor at Academy Award thrice, The Aviator (2005), Blood Diamond (2007) and The Wolf of Wall Street (2007). He was also nominated for Best Actor in Supporting Role in 1993 for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. Fans were disillusioned when DiCaprio lost out on Best Actor at the Oscars in 2014 for The Wolf of Wall Street, resulting in a lot of memes on the actor’s lost cause for the Academy Awards.
In the 2016 Academy Awards, DiCaprio had everyone from his fans to social media voices and fellow celebrities making it evident that they wanted him to win the best actor. And the actor went on to win the ultimate award for The Revenant. We think the memes and trolls for Leonardo diCaprio have stopped, finally. Or haven’t they?
