A long wait of 22 years to hold the most coveted statuette – Will Leonardo DiCaprio win the Oscar this time??
The night when the stars will descend on the red carpet leading to the Dolby Theatre of Hollywood has come. And with the starry descend; all hopes of the fans of Leonardo DiCaprio are touching the sky. The question- Will Leonardo DiCapriowin an Oscar? The world wants him to exit the Dolby Theatre with that Award, and he deserves it in all its glory. He has been nominated in the ‘Best Performance by an actor in a leading role’ category for his spine-chilling performance in the film ‘The Revenant.’ And before this, he has been nominated for the coveted award five times but never has he got the chance to give a winning speech. Let’s take a look at his tryst with the statuette which he has never landed in his hands.
1 Previous Nominations
The first time ever that Leonardo DiCaprio got a nomination was when he just 19 years old. He got nominated in the ‘Best Actor in a Supporting Role’ category for the movie ‘What’s eating Gilbert Grape?’ This was way back in 1994 and eleven years later, he got nominated in the ‘Best Actor’ category for ‘The Aviator.’ Then again he got nominated in the same category for the movie ‘Blood Diamond’ in 2007. Then came “The Wolf of Wall Street’, for which he was nominated in the ‘Best Actor’ category and also under ‘The Best Motion Picture of the Year’ category as he produced the film with Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Martin Scorsese and Joey McFarland. But as fate would have it, he didn’t receive either of them. And this time, it’s for ‘The Revenant’, a movie which literally made him and the entire cast and crew of the film live in hellish conditions and made him do some the most unimaginable things, but he did them all of it with all his courage and showed extraordinary skills.
