With the 88th Academy awards just behind us, one particular actor will finally be able to sleep in peace tonight. Yes! The wait is over! All the prayers, visits to temples, and Kalava threads paid off! Our beloved Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar award for his role in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “The Revenant”.

Having been nominated for Oscars 4 times previously already, but unable to claim the coveted Golden statue as his own, Leo certainly deserves this a lot more than anyone else has ever deserved anything! Previously, the actor had been nominated for his roles in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?”, “The Aviator”, “Blood Diamond” and “The Wolf of Wall Street”, but each time, it seemed like, by some divine curse, the actor lost out, to someone else!

Usually accompanied by one of his Supermodel girlfriends to the Academy Awards, this time, the actor decided to take his mom instead! That’s probably what worked! After all, there’s just nothing like “Mummy ki aashirvaad”!

Beating competition from last year’s winner Eddie Redmayne and Michael Fassbender, Leo was the favourite to win this time, and with good reason!

Thank you so much to the entire Academy for such an incredible honor. #TheRevenant is the product of tireless sacrifice…

Thanking almost everyone on the planet he could think of, Leo also used his acceptance speech to raise awareness about Global Warming.

Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together.

– the (finally)Oscar winner said.

Well, we for one, couldn’t possibly be happier for Leo! 27 years, 4 nominations that were a miss, and Bison Livers? Hell, make him the President already!
