Oscar Actors: DiCaprio, Best Actor–The Revenant

This must be–finally–Leo DiCaprio’s year at the Oscars.

Within one week, five-time Oscar nominee Leonardo DiCaprio won the Best Actor kudo for his fearless performance in The Revenant from two major groups: The Golden Globe Best Actor (Drama) from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), of which I am a member, and the Critics Choice Best Actor from the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA), to which I also belong.

DiCaprio sent his acceptance  speech via video, which was screened at the show.
