February 26, 2016 - accent chair
The Oscars are this Sunday, and we’ve got a fingers crossed for Leonardo DiCaprio. The 41-year-old has been nominated for Best Actor for his purpose in The Revenant, where he plays a bear-mauled fur trapper who crawls by 200 miles of dangerous turf to get revenge. Guys, Leo went by some things to fire this movie. Like spending five hours in the makeup chair and pushing dual hours to a filming location. And powering by continue that frequently strike 25 subsequent zero. And biting into a tender bison liver—despite a fact that he’s a vegetarian. All in a name of art.
Director Alejandro Inarritu insisted that a film be shot in method regulating usually healthy light, that meant that a organisation could usually unequivocally film for an hour and a half any day. It was critical to Inarritu that a film be as picturesque as possible, that meant filming in impassioned continue and traffic with a hurdles involved. “If we finished adult in greenscreen with coffee and everybody carrying a good time, everybody will be happy, though many expected a film would be a square of sh*t,” Inarritu told The Hollywood Reporter. The strenuous filming knowledge paid off: The Revenant was nominated for a grand sum of 12 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Visual Effects.
Much of DiCaprio’s opening in The Revenant is silent, creation for a severely intense viewing experience. He’s been nominated for Best Actor alongside Eddie Redmayne for The Danish Girl, Matt Damon for The Martian, Bryan Cranston in Trumbo, and Michael Fassbender in Steve Jobs. Leo has a scattered story with a Oscars, by that we meant that he has been straight-up robbed in a past. In 1993, he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his purpose in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? and has been nominated for Best Actor 3 apart times before, for his roles in The Aviator (2005), Blood Diamond (2007), and The Wolf Of Wall Street (2014).
Throughout Leo’s film career, he’s played a series of implausible roles that were totally ignored by a Academy. Here are nine times he positively deserved to win an Oscar.
1. When he stole a uncover (and our hearts) in Romeo + Juliet.

DiCaprio and Claire Danes were implausible in a Baz Luhrmann chronicle of a classical adore story. I’m sorry, how was Leo not nominated for this on a spot? This is a travesty.
2. When he saved Rose DeWitt Bukater “in each proceed a chairman could be saved” in Titanic.

This was fundamentally a biggest adore story of all time, and Leo could not have been improved in his purpose as Jack Dawson. Kate Winslet and DiCaprio contend they were never romantically involved, though have stayed quick friends given filming Titanic (which concerned being submersed in a swimming pool for hours on end). Leo even walked Kate down a aisle at her wedding to Ned Rocknroll in Dec 2012.
Side note: Jack Dawson absolutely could have fit on that door-slash-raft and been saved by a lifeboat, too. No, we’re not over it.
3. When he was a many friendly rapist male of all time in Catch Me If You Can.

DiCaprio’s performance as forger and impostor Frank Abagnale Jr. was humorous and moving. In an interview with IGN about Catch Me If You Can, DiCaprio suggested that he gives a purpose his all on set, though tries not to take romantic baggage home with him during night.
“It’s simply a resource of presence for me, since we give all we presumably can in that environment,” he said. “I give each unit of appetite when I’m there. But, when it’s time to go home for me, it’s time to go home. And it’s time to fragment all that and take a dress off and not be that impression anymore because, simply because, we consider we would go crazy. My mind is not set adult for that.”
4. When he ideally prisoner a tortured essence of Howard Hughes in The Aviator.

DiCaprio was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for his opening as Howard Hughes, a business aristocrat and flier who suffered from obsessive–compulsive commotion (OCD) and ongoing pain. Leo pronounced that he was desirous by a autobiography he review of Hughes.
“As an actor, youre constantly acid for that good character,” he told About.com. “And, being a story clean and training about people in a past and unusual things that they’ve done, we came opposite a book of Howard Hughes and he was set adult fundamentally as like a many multi-dimensional impression we could ever come across.”
5. When he got scary in Blood Diamond.

DiCaprio was also nominated for Best Actor for his purpose as a South African niggardly in Blood Diamond, complete with a torpedo accent. He told Indie London that prepping for that purpose was sincerely exhausting and concerned troops and weapons training.
“It’s something that takes a extensive volume of time to get gentle with, though it can unequivocally be a pivotal to apropos a character,” he pronounced of training a character’s accent and mannerisms. “If we don’t have those fundamentals in a approach, you’re not open to these happy accidents that might occur with another actor, since we might not know how to act in those improv moments.”
6. When we saw his manic side in Django Unchained.

Leo played camp owner Calvin Candie in a Quentin Tarantino film. In that barbarous cooking scene, DiCaprio actually sliced his palm open, though he kept filming since he is a critical professional, goddamn it.
“His opening was masterful,” author Stacey Sher told Variety. “His turn of joining is extraordinary.”
7. When he was a Gatsby-est Gatsby ever in The Great Gatsby.

DiCaprio’s The Great Gatsby co-star Tobey Maguire spoke out about how dedicated Leo was to a role.
“We both take a jobs unequivocally severely and have a lot of fun too,” Maguire said of himself and DiCaprio. “I was desirous by operative with [director, author and writer] Baz [Luhrmann] and operative with my friend, who is also a good actor. He was unequivocally a committed detective. He desired looking by source element and building a unequivocally layered abounding character. We finished adult in this operation space arguing compartment dual or 3 in a morning when we had to be on set early a subsequent morning. So it was a unequivocally gratifying knowledge and something I’ll always adore and treasure—the knowledge of operative with a friend.”
8. When he was a summary of ’90s excess in The Wolf Of Wall Street.

What is it about Leo that he can make rapist characters seem so appealing? His opening as Jordan Belfort, a broker who finished adult intrigue investors out of millions, was mesmerizing. DiCaprio told Gayle King that he watched a lot of YouTube videos to ready for a scenes where he was dipsomaniac or high. “There was this other video that we watched obsessively called ‘The Drunkest Men in a World’ that was on YouTube, where a male was perplexing to get a drink and wouldn’t stop,” he said.
9. And right now, for The Revenant.

Come on. The male braved sub-zero temperatures and waded by ice-cold lakes while wearing a genuine bearskin for this.
These 9 performances positively aren’t all DiCaprio has done. He starred in films as different as The Beach and Gangs Of New York, and creeped us all out in Shutter Island and Inception. Basically, a dignified of a story is this: The male deserves a brood of Oscars, and we will accept zero less.
