After five Oscar nominations, Leonardo DiCaprio walked off the Oscar stage Sunday night with the coveted gold trophy. Leo, who was a favorite to win, took home the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in “The Revenant” and was overwhelmed by the public’s support of him and his first Oscar win.
“It all feels incredibly surreal,” he told reporters backstage of the online push for him to win. “It’s surreal because you can’t reach out and physically meet everybody. You hear it on the Internet, you hear it from other people and the truth is, we always strive for the best of what we do and this year in particular I’ve been overwhelmed with such support.” Video ABC News 2016.
