Hey Droogz and Diamonds,
This Past Sunday was an ending of a Streak. Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar.
Before we talk about his win and his career, lets talk about The Revenant. I saw this film a few weeks ago and let me tell you this film was f*cking phenomenal. When I first saw the trailer I was invested. Then I researched the synopsis of the film all to find out it was based on true events so that made more invested.
When I saw it, I knew this was Leo’s year. There was no way in hell he was not winning this year. I mean He was nominated so many times for an Oscar and people thought he should have won. The only time I felt he should have won for a role was when he played Arnie Grape in “What’s eating Gilbert Grape?”
He is an incredible actor. However, all other nominations he had were well deserved but not enough to win. There were other nominees that their performances outshined Leo’s.
When he was nominated for Wolf of Wall Street. I knew that wasn’t his year. The performance was great but it didn’t outstand Matthew McConaughey’s performance in Dallas Buyers Club.
Now back to The Revenant. This movie I have to say was the best performance Leo has given in his career. I loved him when he did “This Boy’s Life” co starring Robert De Niro.
The Revenant was directed by Mexican Filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Won Best Director).
The camera angles, the acting, the dialogue, the story it was just perfect in every way.
I am a Winter Baby, I was born in February but go figure I hate snow and When I seen the things these actors did in the show I was giving them more props for that. That was just too much for me but that is the art of acting. This movie just made me fall in love with Leonardo and his acting career a lot more than ever. I loved him when he played Tobias, Arnie, Jack, Romeo and even when he played Arthur in the film Total Eclipse. But this was the right time, the right film for him to win.
Overall I was just impressed by the film and the acting in this film.
