Today, with a unique date, at the 88th Academy Awards, Leonardo DiCaprio finally broke the 22 year jinx with a total of six nominations in total, winning his first ever Oscars award for the Best Actor for his role in the movie The Revenant.

The Revenant addressed the issue of climatic changes, and in the award acceptance speech, DiCaprio spoke about all those underprivileged people who are 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 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’.
