Leonardo DiCaprio Made the Most Self-Deprecating Joke During His Oscar Engraving
Entertainment| | By Margo Gothelf
It took five nominations, but Leonardo DiCaprio finally got his well-deserved Oscar. DiCaprio’s lack of winnings has become one of the longest running jokes in the entertainment world. The Revenant star has previously been nominated for his work in The Wolf of Wall Street, Blood Diamond, The Aviator, and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, yet the Academy has failed to acknowledge those incredible performances… until last night.
Last night during the 88th Academy Awards, the 41-year-old actor was finally able to walk away with the coveted prize. Before heading to the after parties, DiCaprio took his Oscar to the engraving station to make it official. While watching the etcher carve the nameplate during the Governor’s Ball, DiCaprio could barely hide his anticipation and excitement. The combination of all of the emotions must have gotten to him, so he started to make some small talk.
