The Light Sheds on Leo

Leonardo wins his first Oscar Award


The sleek, heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio receives his first Oscar Award after many years of producing phenomenal performances in various parts and films. DiCaprio has been up as a nominee in several Academy Awards, but February 28th, 2016, marked the night in which he stood as the best Actor of the Year for his role in The Revenant.

This movie entails a vast expenditure of life as a frontiersman in the 1820s. DiCaprio plays the lead character as Hugh glass, a victim of much more than the suspenseful bear attack depicted. The character endures not only this, but the disloyalty of a man in his hunting group that buries him alive. The harsh winters and setting deepen the whole feel of the outlook on this (somewhat nonfictional) story. Hugh Glass pursues revenge to the voluntary crips-keeper of a partner he had, and the audience gets to witness a whole other side of the famed Leonardo.

The Revenant not only upheld DiCaprio to a high-standard, but the director
Alejandro González Iñárritu also felt the heat in his accreditation towards the film. The movie totaled three Academy Awards as well as many nominations, and many other prestigious wins outside the Oscars.
