It was a memorable night for Leonardo DiCaprio, as he won his first Oscar for his work in The Revenant. Making the film with director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárittu was a completely immersive experience.
“This was true storytelling,” said DiCaprio, who was previously nominated for his work in The Wolf of Wall Street, Blood Diamond, The Aviator, and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. “We really got to have a collaborative experience together and this was a journey that I’ll never forget with Alejandro. It took up such a large portion of our lives but as a result we have a great film to look back on for years to come.”
DiCaprio used his Oscar speech moment to also direct attention to climate change (in 2007 he narrated and produced the documentary The 11th Hour which spotlighted this global crisis).
