Leonardo DiCaprio Finally Wins First Oscar Award

You probably have seen the jokes on social media about Leonardo DiCaprio winning an Oscar only if the host is Steve Harvey he of the wrong Miss World 2015 announcement.

Others went way far by prediction a movie in future about DiCaprio not winning an Oscar would actually sweep he Oscars with the person playing DiCaprio scooping Best Actor award.

Well, all the talk and speculation was put to rest last night when the ‘Ladies man’ finally won his first Oscar for his survival epic The Revenant, after six nominations(5 acting and 1 as a producer) and  received a standing ovation as he picked up his award.

He scooped the best actor at the 88th Academy Awards with many of his fans taking to social media to celebrate what seemed a long lost fight for a star who has graced our screens consistently for long that we could almost feel his pain.

Other major winners included Brie Larson who was named best actress for Room with Spotlight taking home the best picture Oscar with Mad Max: Fury Road picking up the most awards of the night, with six accolades.

Mark Rylance won the best supporting actor Oscar, with fellow Briton Sam Smith winning best original song.

The main debate dominating the awards revolved around whether Hollywood and in particular the Oscars are racist after the ceremony had been boycotted by some Hollywood figures protesting about the lack of ethnic diversity among this year’s nominees, as all 20 nominees in the best acting or supporting acting categories are white.

Chris Rock the host joked about the whole controversy “You realise if they nominated hosts, I wouldn’t even get this job,” he quipped. “Y’all would be watching Neil Patrick Harris right now.” He said

The Revenant won three of the 12 awards for which it was nominated. Alejandro Inarritu also won best director and Emmanuel Lubezki won his third Oscar for cinematography in a row, having won in 2015 for Birdman and 2014 for Gravity.
