Leonardo DiCaprio had a huge night on Sunday as he finally won his very first Oscar. Leo, who had been nominated for an Academy Award six times, has been regarded by fans as severely overdue for the prestigious award.
Leonardo DiCaprio finally realized one of his dreams by winning the Oscar for his role in the film The Revenant, where he played a man who survives the elements and nature. However, Leo was so excited about his Oscar win and celebrated so much that he nearly forgot the actual award at an after-party.
According to a report by TMZ, Leonardo DiCaprio celebrated his huge Oscar win at an after party at Ago restaurant in WeHo, where he was the center of attention and seemingly had a fantastic time with those around him.
Wow! It looks like Leo was having so much fun celebrating his Oscar that he almost forgot to take it home with him! It’s a funny story now, but if something would have happened to damage the statue, or it had been stolen, Leonardo DiCaprio would probably be kicking himself this morning after working so hard to earn the award.
DiCaprio’s win for The Revenant was arguably the biggest moment of the night during the Academy Awards. Leo earned a standing ovation from his fellow actors and actresses and a huge applause after being announced the winner by actress Julianne Moore. Leonardo’s former Titanic co-star and close friend, Kate Winslet, was so thrilled for her friend that she cried tears of joy during his big moment.
Leo being the calm, cool, and collected man that he is said his thank yous to many people including his former directors, co-stars, friends, and parents, but also took the opportunity to speak out on a global crisis near and dear to his heart. DiCaprio asked everyone to do anything they could to help control the climate change that is happening around the world.
Despite all the controversy, which is sure to be addressed heavily before next year’s nominations are revealed, it really was Leonardo DiCaprio’s night. The actor who has starred in many amazing movies and roles such as a very diverse, yet equally appealing, set of characters finally had his moment and everyone in attendance and at home loved every second of it. Thankfully, Leo didn’t forget his Oscar award at the after-party and hopefully has it stored safely somewhere in his home where he can admire it for years to come, or until he wins his next Oscar!
