It comes as a surprise to many Leonardo DiCaprio fans that the star has never won an Oscar. However, could this be his year?

 

On Jan. 16 the 73rd annual Golden Globes took place in Beverly Hills, at which Leonardo DiCaprio, who recently starred in the film The Revenant was recognized as best actor in a drama.

 

DiCaprio was up against other nominees such as Will Smith, Michael Fassbender, Eddie Redmayne and Bryan Cranston for their roles in motion picture dramas as well.

 

When the winner of best actor was announced, the audience rose to their feet in awe of Leonardo DiCaprio who took home the trophy.

 

According to Forbes, this is DiCaprio’s third win with previous awards given to him for his roles in The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street. Also, from his performances throughout 2015, the star also landed on Forbes’ top paid actors list in 13th place bringing in $29 million.

 

In his acceptance speech, DiCaprio stated that the award was for First Nations peoples who were in the movie and all the indigenous communities because of The Revenant’s plot. He later stated that we need to recognize the history of the indigenous people and their story. Being a popular environmentalist, the actor concluded his speech by also stating that it is time to protect the environment for the future.

 

Ell Brooks, a junior at Catalina Foothills High School states, “Hopefully the next thing he is awarded is an Academy Award for his amazing performances.”

 

DiCaprio fans all around the world hope that because of his success at the Golden Globes, the star could be awarded his first Oscar in the coming month.
