Leonardo DiCaprio failed to win an Academy Award for the fourth time and fans went nuts.
Leo is an awesome actor and we’ve all found it a bit unfair he’s never taken home that golden statue. DiCaprio is still a winner in our book and his failure to be recognized was depicted in some hilarious memes.
“Poor Leo” began trending on Twitter last night, after DiCaprio lost out on Best Actor to Matthew McConaughey. Matthew deserved the Oscar but we can’t help but feel sorry for Leo who is also very talented.
Leo was nominated for his first Academy Award back in 1994 for his role as Johnny Depp’s mentally handicapped brother in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape”. DiCaprio lost out that year to Tommy Lee Jones who won the award for his role in The Fugitive.
Leonardo didn’t receive his next nomination until “The Aviator” in 2005. That Oscar went to Jamie Foxx for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the movie “Ray”
In 2007 DiCaprio was nominated for his work in “Blood Diamond”, but he lost out to Forest Whitaker who played Idi Amin in “The Last King of Scotland”.
There was 7 years between DiCaprio’s last nomination and his most recent Oscar nomination. He has since starred as Frank Wheeler in “Revolutionary Road”, J.Edgar Hoover in “J.Edgar”, Calvin Candie in “Django Unchained” and Jay Gatsby in “The Great Gatsby” but hasn’t landed any awards for these awesome roles.
Leonardo DiCaprio is still pretty young and we’re certain he will take home an Oscar one day. Until that time arrives, let’s check out some hilarious memes about never winning an Oscar.
We think Leonardo will be just fine. He’s living the life and dating supermodels. We think he’ll survive without an Academy Award for now.
