    In his whole career he only has 3 nominations and no wins yet. How many nominations do you think he should have by now….. or wins?

    Personally i think he should have won for The Aviator.

    Same here! If he won the Golden Globe that year, what is wrong with hin winning the Best Actor Oscar that year. The GGs obviously have better sense than the Oscars.

    He also should have been nominated for:

    Revolutionary Road
    J Edgar
    Titanic

    A total of 6 nominations…. and for Django unchained that makes 7. but yet he only has 3

    The only performance of his I ever watched that I thought he was the best american actor of the year was in “Catch Me If You Can”. In fact, it’s my favorite performance of his. Although he ranges from good to excellent on all of the films he has done with Scorsese. But I’m not a huge fan, and I always have the feeling people can get a bit carried away when he gets cast in anything (“J. Edgar”?). He is probably gonna win someday, but I don’t find him so overdue like most here.

    Yes I agree, I did like his turn in “Catch Me If You Can” along with his performance in “The Aviator” (Definitely should’ve won the Oscar over Foxx) and “Gilbert Grape” (I preferred Jones and Fiennes over him.)
    I highly doubt the Academy is in a rush to award him. Though I don’t see him winning though in the future.

    I see him winning one day. He could be a serious contender to win the oscar for django. And next year he has 2 major films coming out. The Wolf of Wall Street and The Great Gatsby. I could see him getting an oscar nomination for the Wolf of Wall Street and the globes will of course shower him with nominations for both films.

    I always enjoy this question. I thought that DiCaprio was great in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, but overpraised for The Aviator and just distractingly bad in Blood Diamond. I haven’t seen J. Edgar, but I suspect that I wouldn’t like that either, as I just don’t respond very well to performances when he appears to be trying to hard, so that probably doesn’t bode well for my reaction to his performance in Django unchained. I liked him much better and think that he was robbed of a nomination for Catch Me If You Can (I think that he should have bumped Caine) and wouldn’t have minded seeing him nominated for The Departed rather than for Blood Diamond, although like with his Rhodesian accent, I didn’t care much for his Boston accent (and have a similar problem with him in Gangs of New York). I think that he was also very good in Titanic and Revolutionary Road, but those Best Actor lineups were incredibly difficult to break into. And I recently saw Inception and liked him there very much too. Oh, and his early work in Marvin’s Room, The Basketball Diaries, and This Boy’s Life (same year as Gilbert Grape) were great beyond his years, but he never seemed to get traction for those roles. So, push comes to shove, I’d just give him the 2 Oscar nominations (WEGG and CMIYC), as I think he’s otherwise been overrated or just solid in really competitive years.

    GIlbert Grape, CMIYC, The Departed, Blood Diamond, Aviator, Revolutionary Road, Shutter Island, Inception, and J. Edgar. All of those performances were great and each deserved a nomination and he should have been nominated and won for The Departed.

    I’ll be completely honest and say I actually prefer him in “Titanic” and “Romeo + Juliet” than in “Revolutionary Road” and “J. Edgar”.

    He was rightfully snubbed for the horrid J.Edgar. I wouldn’t have minded if he took Bardem’s spot with Inception though.

    Romeo and juliet was a horrible film. He has done much better work in his career. His acting in the film was fine but the movie itself was extremely weird and stupid. imo

    He’s, definitely, my favorite contemporany actor. It has been a while
    since I didn’t enjoyed one of his performances (Gangs of New York) and I
    support two of his nominations: What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and The
    Aviador. He was wrongfully nominated for Blood Diamond, he should’ve
    earned the nod for The Departed.

    These are how many nominations he should have by now, in my opinion:

    1993
    – Supporting Actor: What’s Eating Gilbert Grape – Fiennes and DiCaprio
    were (BY A MILE) the best supporting actors of that year, even if I
    would be happy with him winning over TLJ (Jones was the weakest),
    Fiennes was perfect. DiCaprio #2
    1996 – Lead Actor: Romeo + Juliet –
    It’s an arguable nomination, but with this Silver Bear winning
    performance and his great supporting turn in Marvin’s Room, I would put
    him in the 5th place behind Nathan Lane, Tom Cruise, Woody Harrelson and
    Geoffrey Rush.
    2002 – Lead Actor: Catch Me If You Can – It’s his
    most subtle performance and he did a great job with the characterization
    and construction as whole. It’s a tough year because all the 5 nominees
    (Day-Lewis, Nicholson, Brody, Caine and Cage) were very good/great and
    then there were the ones missing: DiCaprio, Rockwell, Campbell Scott,
    Robin Williams and Hugh Grant. I think my final line-up would be: 1st –
    Nicholson, 2nd – Brody, 3rd – Cage, 4th – DiCaprio and 5th –
    Rockell/Williams.
    2004 – Lead Actor: The Aviator – Another really
    tough year. I’m not a fan of Foxx anymore (viewed two or more times,
    there was more gimmick than anything in his performance) and MDB is a
    movie that I can’t get into (so, no love for Eastwood). I love Cheadle,
    but he was good but not great. This leave me with DiCaprio and Depp
    alongside with Paul Giamatti, Jim Carrey and Kevin Bacon and he would
    finally be my number #1
    2006 – Lead Actor: The Departed – Just replace the movies lol He would be my #3 or #4
    2008
    – Lead Actor: Revolutionary Road – Pitt? Really? And I’m not a real
    lover of Langella’s performance. I would’ve nominated DiCaprio and
    Fassbender (Then DiCaprio would be #4)
    2010 – Lead Actor: Shutter
    Island – Bardem and Bridges? HAHAHA no, baby, no. Gosling and DiCaprio
    should have been there (DiCaprio #3 after Eisenberg and Gosling)

    7 nominations with 1 win lol

    But
    I would be ok with him not getting a nod in 96 and 02. He will win an
    Oscar, that’s for sure. I hope he wins in the lead category and under
    the belt of Scorsese, let’s hope he’ll be nominated this year.

    This list doesn’t mean he should have been nominated every time, just that he was worthy of a nomination (as in, maybe not top 5 of the year, but definitely top…)

    Titanic, Catch Me if You Can (have not seen gangs of New York), the Aviator (should have won for this one), The Departed (even tough I HATED that movie’s ending, and no it was not about the rat; the whole movie up to that point was stellar) and Revolutionary Road.

    I also loved him in inception (which is a movie that I ADORE) but I don’t know if he was worthy of a nom that year. He was pretty good in J. Edgar but not worthy of a nom that year.

    I enjoyed him in Gilbert Grape
    Revolutionary road and Aviator..

    if he gets a supporting nom for DJango…
    he might win as default because the other guys
    are mostly all oscar winners already…

    Tommy lee Jones should beat him yet again!!!

    How many people that said DiCaprio over Bardem had watched Biutuful… For me Bardem did one of the best work of that year….
    I do not like DiCaprio… he was good In Gilbert Grape. Departed… he was also great but he was playing so much time with Supporting / Leading that he was out of nomination.
