The Oscar: Leonardo DiCaprio for ‘The Revenant’

After a meme-heavy campaign, feverish Internet cheerleading led by Kate Winslet and constant reminders of that beard, Leonardo DiCaprio finally took home his Oscar, for Best Actor in 2015’s The Revenant, at the telecast in February. During the most-tweeted moment in the show’s history (take that, Ellen Degeneres), DiCaprio thanked his friends (“You know who you are”), family and co-star Tom Hardy while calling for urgent action against climate change. Later, he made an adorable dad joke while having his statuette engraved at the after party. (“Do you do this every year? I wouldn’t know.”) The rest is cinematic history. blog.png
