Leonardo DiCaprio finally took home Oscar gold last night, winning the Best Actor award for his grueling performance in The Revenant. It was a long time coming for the oft-snubbed actor, who had been nominated five time previously for an Academy Award (four times for acting, one for producing), and the internet wasted no time in turning his performance in The Revenant into one giant plea for an Oscar: if Leo couldn’t get one after languishing for months in a troubled shoot and having to eat raw bison liver, surely he never would.
Well, now things have come full circle, as the internet exploded last night after Leo’s win with all sorts of celebratory memes, many highlighting in hilarious fashion just how hard he had to work for the honor. Alas, we’ve now come to the end of Leo Oscar meme season, but before we all move onto the next thing, let’s take a moment to bask in this fresh batch of Leo Wins memes before we put this whole thing to rest and never speak of it again.
