Finally, actor Leonardo DiCaprio has won an Oscar in the Best Actor category for the year 2016. He got the award for his acting skills in the movie The Revenant.
Thanking the academy, nominees and all those who were present on the occasion, actor Leonardo DiCaprio said that The Revenant was a product of the tireless effort of an unbelievable cast and crew he got to work alongside. The Revenant also won an Oscar for director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu in the Best Director category. The director took home the award for the second time in a row.
The actor, nominated six times and who only saw others take away the Oscar, said he was very moved to get a standing ovation by all. Apparently, nobody has got such an honour till now.
In his speech, taking an opportunity, Leonardo spoke about how climate change was real and how it was going to affect the world. He took an extra mile and campaigned for upcoming elections saying that he doesn’t support politicians who don’t talk about climate change and also asked everybody to vote for somebody who is working for climate change.
