After taking home a Golden Globe for his performance in The Revenant earlier this year, Leo is up for best actor in a leading role at the Oscars. In a statement, the actor said, "I am so grateful to the Academy for their recognition of this film. Making The Revenant was one of the most rewarding and collaborative experiences of my life. None of this would have been possible without Alejandro [González Iñárritu]'s talent, vision, and determination. Our dedicated crew also deserves to share in this moment. Together, they have created a truly unique cinematic experience. Congratulations to all of my fellow nominees this season. Thank you to the Academy."
While this is Leo's fifth nomination overall, the actor has yet to receive an Oscar. We're keeping our fingers crossed hoping this is his lucky year!
