Leo finally wins his first Oscar and the internet explodes

Nominated 5 times previously without a single win, Leo's struggle for an Oscar struck a chord with all of us!
29 Feb, 2016

Leonardo Di Caprio finally walked away with an Oscar for Best Actor today, for his role in 2015's The Revenant.

Everyone thought it was a sure thing this time, but there's always a shadow of a doubt -- after all, Leo was nominated for an Oscar five times before securing this win.

The actor definitely made the most of his moment onstage as he proceeded to talk about the importance of recognising global warming and its effects on the planet. "Climate change is real, it is happening right now, it is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world... who speak for all of humanity."

The actor added that we can't take the planet for granted anymore, and said of his Oscar win: "I don't take this for granted."

Fans and fellow actors heaped congratulations on Leo for his win as its widely acknowledged that the actor could've and should've won an Oscar for roles he's played before.

Kanye West, Oprah... even the White House gave Leo a shout out!

Of course, the funniest reactions were more creative.

There were the expected 'bear' jokes:

And the #OscarsSoWhite jokes, also expected:

Haters added their two cents:

Some people made use of Leo's more unfortunate pictures:

Oops, there's that bear again:

'True' fans had to have their say:

Some people speculated on the nature of Leo's after party vibes:

Some people thought they spotted secret messages...

But mostly, people were just thrilled:

Congrats Leo!

If you are nominated (and waited) constantly for 5 years, this appreciation becomes inexorable. The Oscar formula calculates appropriately.

It seems DiCaprio has more fans in Asia than America & Europe. Asians are emotional and sentimental people so his film TITANIC ( started) made asians his die hard FAN.

I watched it. He was good, but it was certainly not an Oscar winning performance. But anyway congrats. He is one of my favorites.

@Abhijeet @ not an easy task to make ur character different from so many movies on western themes in Hollywood. This one is quite near to real work of art piece and dedication of a actor lyk Leonardo. Wall street and coming up with revenant Leo has always puts up his worth in Hollywood.
