    Poor Leonardo DiCaprio just can’t seem to catch a break at the Oscars.
    After four previous acting losses, plus one for producing Best Picture
    nominee “The Wolf of Wall Street,” this popular star has been within
    clutching distance of taking home his own Academy Award time and time
    again. What film (including upcoming “The Revenant”) do you think DiCaprio deserved to win an Oscar for? Vote in our poll here. If you don’t see your favorite Leo performance listed, please comment below!

    Why is The Revenant an option? 

    To me he hasn’t ever given the best male performance in a given category of any year, but there have been some occasions where I wouldn’t necessarily have minded. Gilbert Grape, The Aviator, and The Departed would have been okay, and I think his work in Revolutionary Road is possibly his most underrated. But I think there were always stronger options to choose from.

    My favourite DiCaprio performances are What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and The Wolf of Wall Street, the former being one of the least condescending depictions of developmental disability in cinema (not saying a lot I know) and the latter showcasing a previously untapped ability at physical comedy which was breathtaking. I wouldn’t have voted for them, however, because of Ralph Fiennes and Chiwetel Ejiofor respectively.

    I don’t think he deserved to win for The Aviator, and I haven’t seen Blood Diamond, though I have watched a clip and his South Efrican eccent sounds pretty atrocious.

    Also how can anyone vote for The Revenant in that poll? Who’s seen it?

    Given the Oscar nominees, I’ll say The Aviator. However, I really think Javier Bardem should’ve won for The Sea Inside that year (he wasn’t nominated).

    Titanic, Catch Me If You Can, Shutter Island and The Wolf of Wall Street.

    Of those options, I’d say The Wolf of Wall Street. Looking away from there, I’d also highlight Revolutionary Road and Titanic.

    He should have won for The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street in both categories at least.  Polls still do not work.

    I would give him the Best Supporting Actor for Django Unchained! Christoph Waltz should have been campaigned in the Lead Actor category.

    He should have won for The Departed in Lead Actor swapping with Blood Diamond. He’s great and Diamond but he is outstanding in The Departed. The years he was nominated he lost to somebody worthy though I haven’t seen Gilbert Grape

    Why does it always seem to come down to the stunning newcomer pitted against the beloved veteran in a performance that represents the pinnacle of a stellar career?

    In 1993, DiCaprio was brilliant as Arnie Grape. He truly embodies the truth of an impaired teen. He does not play for sentiment but captures the joy, the annoyance and the pain of loving such a person. A mesmerizing performance!

    Best Supporting Actor Tommy Lee Jones had a career of great performances. He took the role of a law enforcement officer in a chase film and embued a level of honesty. A lesser actor would have made the role a villain. Jones made Samuel Gerard an accurate reflection of a committed officer who spends each day seeing bad things and trying to do the right thing.

    ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’. 

    Jamie Foxx was better in 2004.
