Leonardo DiCaprio Has Finally Won an Oscar

Watch Leo’s acceptance speech and find out who some of the other big winners of the night were.

He’s done it. Leonardo DiCaprio has finally won an Oscar. Despite having a prolific career that spans well over two decades and has seen over 160 award nominations (which includes five Oscar nominations prior to this evening’s show), he had never won a single Academy Award – until tonight. Thanks to his truly remarkable performance in The Revenant, Leo has finally claimed a golden statue. Other winners of the night include The Room‘s Brie Larson for Best Actress, The Revenant‘s Alejandro G. Iñárritu for Best Director, and Spotlight for Best Picture. Mad Max: Fury Road was also notable for its six wins out of an overall total of 10.
