Surely Leonardo DiCaprio’s due for an Oscar!
Honey Boo Boo has won more awards than Leonardo DiCaprio.
But could his portrayal of stockbroker Jordan Belfort in new film The Wolf Of Wall Street make it fourth time lucky for him at this year’s Academy Awards?
The 39-year-old has just won a Golden Globe for Best Actor In A Musical Or Comedy for his Wall Street role, but until now an Oscar has evaded him.
He’s been nominated three times – Best Actor for The Aviator and Blood Diamond, Best Supporting Actor for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? – but he’s always been left applauding the winner while doing his best not to look disappointed.
Leo said in a recent interview: I realised long ago you can’t control what people think is worthy of an award. That’s so beyond your control.
‘It’s something one shouldn’t even attempt to manipulate because, if you do, that’s transparent.’
Leo, we’re rooting for you!
