Ladies and Gentlemen, the wait is finally over! Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar at the 88th Academy Awards on Sunday for his leading role in The Revenant. Receiving a standing ovation as he took to the stage, this moment was surreal and long overdue for DiCaprio. Arguably one of the best actors of our time, this award was definitely well deserved. Surely his roles in films such as The Great Gatsby, Inception, and Wolf of Wall Street, were worthy achievements in his portfolio but, I guess patience is surely a virtue. After 6 nominations, he delivered a heartfelt,environmentalist speech as he accepted his very first Oscar. Congrats Leonardo DiCaprio from the HYPEFRESH crew! Check out the acceptance speech above.
