Leonardo DiCaprio is once again nominated for Oscar. On Thursday, he earned the 6th nomination for his performance in The Revenant and this nudged him closer to the golden statue. There have been many times when he has come close to the award but hasn’t won it. Although he deserved to win all the awards that time, they have just been snatched away.
After all, he is a movie star who has been delivering a consistent performance, no matter what the role is. Titanic, his biggest movie has helped him achieve heights of success. As of now, the Leonardo has shifted focus mainly on winning those awards that have been long-overdue. Given below are 5 movies, where Leonardo truly deserved an Oscar:
1. Blood Diamond
Leonardo DiCaprio has given an amazing performance in Blood Diamond, with his accent as well as ability to bring out emotions. It surely deserved an Oscar, but sad it didn’t.
2. The Basketball Diaries
Leonardo DiCaprio had played a painfully great and heart-wrenching role of a troubled youth. We feel he should have definitely won an Oscar for the same.
3.The Wolf of Wall Street
Here, Leonardo played the role of Jordan Belfort which was simply considered to be an amazing performance of 2013. He definitely deserved an Oscar for playing such a despicable character.
Aviator has several scenes which have gone deep down inside our hearts. Leonardo along with Martin Scorsese can produce some greatest and most memorable movies. However, no Oscar in spite of these awesome performances.
5. Django Unchained
Leonardo didn’t even receive any nomination for it. Years would pass, but no one would forget DiCaprio’s role as Calvin Candie. Sad that it deserved to win an Oscar but wasn’t even nominated.
So now, what do you guys think? Will he win the Oscar this time? Do comment
