The 87th academy awards were held on the 22nd of February at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, Los Angeles.
I congratulate all those who received an Oscar according to the categories they were selected for, but have you ever thought of the many celebrities who are never awarded for their efforts in showbiz.
One of the best actors of all times surprisingly were never awarded in the recent years yet they are the best in the showbiz market.

1. Leonardo DiCaprio

My main point is we have celebrities who deserved an Oscar at their breaking point of their careers. Unlike some people like Oprah who receive an award for just saying “you get a car, you get a car, your all getting a car.” They should award people who deserve an award for doing something more than just talking although Oprah does give out actual cars, she belongs to the Nobel Prize not the Oscars.
