The world has been waiting..and it finally happened

After four previous misses, Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar for his grunting, gruff performance in The Revenant.

‘Making The Revenant was about man’s relationship to the natural world…climate change is real,’ said DiCaprio as he used his acceptance speech to deliver a lecture on the environment. ‘It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.’

‘Let us not take our planet for granted,’ he concluded. ‘I do not take tonight for granted.’
