Leonardo DiCaprio Reacts to His Oscar Nomination 2016 - Statement!

Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for an Best Actor Academy Award this morning for his work in The Revenant, and he is now reacting to the amazing news!

“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 [director] Alejandro’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,” the 41-year-old actor told Just Jared in a statement.

    Hi ladies! I am heartbroken to hear about Alan Rickman :( WTH!!! I have always loved his acting! My thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.

    Weird – about he and Bowie – both British & died at 69 from cancer.

    Lukas and his new favorite coat are there…………..surprise! lol
    And I hate this e-cig as much as I hate that newsboy cap.

  • Davina

    Seriously 😔

  • ####

    His hair is a bit too slicked back today.

  • Soph

    Congrats Leo!

  • ####

    Lukas posted a pic from Buckingham Palace on his IG too.

  • Soph

    Both are so unexpected. :(

  • Davina

    It’s best for him to go with a more natural look instead but he keeps doing this. He has such great hair, a shame.

  • ####

  • Shelly

    Wow, is that Leo’s stomach sticking out that far? He sure has lost a lot of weight since then.

    lol
    I hope Leo takes a picture with them. C’mon, Leo.

  • Hello=)

    Looks like something was put on his stomach. And makeup.

  • Hello=)

    He looks hot!

  • Shelly

    I see a big belly. He had that stomach in the summer. But later on lost it. He really has slimmed down.

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! I think he had a little belly, but since he is slouching, it makes it look bigger.

  • Hello=)

    Yes but I think they are layering bloody and torn up fake skin over it. You can see a weird indent on his stomach that doesn’t look right. I agree he was a bit bigger but the rest of his body still looks quite thin.

  • jayj2

    I’ll give it ago, if she bloody gets here! it’s 6.20 pm I finished work at 5.30, I’ve met the office cleaners for the first time though, they are very nice! Lol

  • ####

    Great sign! I hope Leo sees it! LOL

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! You never know! It’s a lot easier than you think!!!!!

  • jayj2

    Too late I think he’s been there a while already , going for a cheeky nandos and beer instead. Have a good night girls X
