Leonardo DiCaprio wins Best Actor at 88th Academy Awards; complete list of winners

MUMBAI: Doesn’t it feel extremely pleasant when you get rewarded or appreciated for your work? That breathtaking moment when you don’t understand whether to weep or be gleeful. And winning an award after waiting for the past six years just makes that win even sweeter.

With almost the entire world praying for Leonardo DiCaprio to bag his first Oscar at this year’s 88th Academy Awards, the actor and his fans were not disappointed. DiCaprio finally walked off the stage with the coveted golden trophy for Best Actor for his role in The Revenant. In his speech, the actor not only thanked the director Alejandro Iñárritu, but also expressed gratitude to his parents.

Adding further, the actor said, “Making The Revenant was about man's relationship to the natural world, climate change is real. It is happening right now. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Calling 2015 as the hottest year in history he said, "It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species.Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted.”

While Mad Max: Fury Road bagged six Oscars, The Revenant grabbed three and Spotlight took away two awards.
