—Leonardo DiCaprio

In his acceptance speech, DiCaprio described The Revenant as “about man’s relationship to the natural world”, and spoke of underprivileged people affected adversely by human activities on nature. He also said “Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow”. He concluded saying “I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.”

DiCaprio was previously nominated for his work in The Wolf of Wall Street, for Best Actor and Best Picture; Blood Diamond, for Best Actor; The Aviator, Best Actor; and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, for Best Supporting Actor.

Kate Winslet, who co-starred with DiCaprio in Titanic, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Steve Jobs, but lost to Swedish actress Alicia Vikander for her role in The Danish Girl. Brie Larson collected Best Actress for her performance in Room.

Mad Max: Fury Road had ten nominations and won six of them: Best Costume Design, Film Editing, Makeup and Hairstyling, Production Design, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing. Ex Machina won the award for Best Visual Effects. Spotlight won the Best Picture award, and Sam Smith‘s song Writing’s on the Wall won Best Original Song for Spectre ahead of the Grammy-winning song Earned It by Canadian singer The Weeknd.

He also said “Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow”. He concluded saying “I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.”

DiCaprio previously got nominations for the Academy Awards for his roles in The Wolf of Wall Street, Blood Diamond, The Aviator and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape when he was just 19-year-old.

DiCaprio’s co-star of the movie Titanic Kate Winset was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in Steve Jobs movie, but lost to Swedish actress Alicia Vikander for her role in the movie adaptation of the novel The Danish Girl.

Mad Max: Fury Road had ten nominations and won six of them, namely Costume Design, Film Editing, Makeup and Hairstyling, Production Design, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing. Ex Machina won the award for Visual Effects. Spotlight won the Best Picture award, Brie Larson collected Best actress for the movie Room and Sam Smith‘s song Writing’s on the Wall won the Best Original music for Spectre ahead of Grammy’s winning song Earned It by Canadian singer The Weeknd.

This would now end the trolls mocking him ‘Leonardo NoOscario’.

83-year old activist and singer Yoko Ono was hurried to Mount Sinai West Hospital after having flu-like symptoms. Early on Friday, Ono was having flu-like symptoms and called her doctor who thought it would be helpful to go to the hospital and get a check up. Upon visiting, it was discovered that she had experienced dehydration and the flu. She is, however doing well. After a Page Six story reported that she had been rushed to the hospital for a stroke, long-time spokesman Elliot Mintz stated she was hospitalized for flu-like symptoms.

Her son Sean Lennon stated it “was NOT a stroke, just dehydration/tired. She is FINE. Thank you everyone for your concern.” She is reportedly in good condition in the hospital and should be released today. In October, Ono and the latest version of her Plastic Ono Band headlined the Modern Sky Festival in New York’s Central Park. She also continues to release music, and is active through her own projects, and projects with Sean.

She is widow of The Beatles member John Lennon, who died in the same hospital she visited. She still lives in the apartment building in New York City outside where John Lennon was shot. She turned 83 ten days ago on February 18.

Yesterday, in the Last 16 round of the UEFA Champions League 2015–2016, Spanish football club FC Barcelona defeated London-based club Arsenal F.C. 2–0 — Lionel Messi scoring both of those at the Emirates Stadium. Munich-based club Bayern Munich were held to a 2–2 draw against Italian club Juventus FC in the Juventus Stadium.

Cquote1.svg Barcelona is a great team[…] We put a lot of energy in the game and technically we were very average. Cquote2.svg

—Arsène Wenger

At London, Barcelona had a greater ball possession against The Gunners. The match saw two yellow cards. Unbeaten in their last 32 games, Barça were not able to net goals for more than an hour. Arsène Wenger’s team Arsenal held the defending champions, and it took 49 minutes for the Catalonians to have one shot on target. In the 71st minute, Barcelona won the ball and began counter-attacking, where Messi–SuárezNeymar, the MSN trio, broke the deadlock as the Argentine Messi scored his first goal against Czech goalkeeper Petr Čech.

In the 83rd minute, Mathieu Flamini who was just subbed in brought the Argentine down in the penalty area and the visitors won a penalty. Messi scored his second of the night leaving the English side facing an uphill battle. Arsenal have been eliminated in the Last 16 round five consecutive times. After the match, Wenger told BT Sport “Barcelona is a great team[…] We put a lot of energy in the game and technically we were very average.”

Barcelona in their last 33 unbeaten games have netted 100 goals. Arsenal are to play the second leg at Camp Nou on March 16.

In the other fixture of the night, between Bayern Munich and Juventus, the Germans had better ball possession. Thomas Müller and Arjen Robben put the visitors 2–0 up, netting in the 43rd and the 55th minute respectively. But after the hour mark, Paulo Dybala and Stefano Sturaro brought Juventus level by scoring in the 63rdand the 76th minutes, and the first leg finished in a 2–2 draw. The match saw four bookings, three for the visitors.

Juventus continued their unbeaten streak of now seventeen home matches in European competition since defeat in 2013 against Bayern Munich.
