Leonardo DiCaprio is finally taking home an Oscar! Finally! After being nominated six times for an Academy Award, Leo won the Oscar for Best Actor this year for his role in The Revenant.
Leo had some steep competition this year and beat out fellow nominees Bryan Cranston in Trumbo, Matt Damon in The Martian, Michael Fassbender in Steve Jobs, and Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl. Leo's last Best Actor nomination was in 2013 for his role in The Wolf of Wall Street.
In his speech, Leo thanked all of his fellow nominees, colleagues who have worked with him throughout his career, his fellow cast members and crew on The Revenant, among others, but chose to end on an environmental note about climate change. He said:
"Climate change is real, it is happening right now, it is the most urgent threat facing our entire speices and we need to work collectively and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world, who speak for all of humanity."
Congratulations Leo! You earned it.
