    While I still stand by my argument that three Oscar nominations is plenty for an actor of Leonardo DiCaprio’s age (check out my recent article on the Gold Derby home page), if you could have changed Oscar history and given him one more nomination, which film would you have picked (i.e. which one was he the most snubbed for)?

    If your pick is not included, leave a comment with your alternate choice.

    Remember, DiCaprio has already received nominations for “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” (1993), “The Aviator” (2004), and “Blood Diamond” (2006).

    The Departed (replacing Mark Wahlberg in supporting, probably would’ve given him the win)
    Django Unchained (probably would’ve given him the win had he not won for The Departed) 

    In the poll I voted for Django.

    His two best performances for me have so far been Titanic and Catch Me If You Can, neither of which, as so often happens, got him nominations.

    Catch Me if You Can is his best performance.

    I absolutely loved Django, and thought DiCaprio was excellent, but Waltz and Jackson are even better and more deserving of recognition.

    if you can use some exotic booze
    there’s a bar in far Bombay
    Come on and fly with me, let’s fly let’s fly away…..Heusen/Cahn

    I also loved him in Titanic. Could have been those eyes I suppose, which destroyed me.

    CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is a severely underrated film and it may possibly be my favorite Steven Spielberg film in some ways BECAUSE it didn’t really feel like a Spielberg film, and don’t get me wrong, I do highly respect the man and he has made some great, classic films but he really created a unique and different environment that I have not found in any other film he has made…..and it was also my favorite film performance for Leonardo DiCaprio, who did such a great job.

    He got my vote for that closely ahead from Revolutionary Road, The Departed, and Titanic.

    I maybe would have nominated him for The Departed in lead, replacing both O’toole and Smith with him and Damon. I’m blah towards the movie, but I thought they both were great and both were lead. I think his best performances were in The Aviator and Catch Me If You Can. 2002 however was a stacked year. Hugh Grant (About A Boy), Edward Norton (25th Hour), James Spader (Secretary) and Timothy Spall (All or Nothing) were worthy contenders that left un-nominated. So, ultimately, I wouldn’t have nominated DiCaprio.

    I’m torn between “Titantic” and “Catch Me If You Can.”

    Titanic — the Oscars ate it up for 11 wins and 14 nominations, but snubbed Leo.

    Who would Leo replace? Matt Damon? Robert Duvall? Peter Fonda? Dustin Hoffman? Jack Nicholson?

    I’ll kick out Peter Fonda for Leo.

    I think that “Django” and “Catch Me If You Can” are only two for which he should be in. He was never close to win for me, i would rank him 2nd for “Django” if he was nominated behind Waltz.

    This is tough. Huge fan of his and think he was snubbed for all but two of the above (Marvin’s Room and J Edgar) but my vote had t be the Departed.

    Titanic, one of the roles, I think, DiCaprio was totally convincing in–and a character he’s never been able to separate himself from.  Even when I hear his voice, attempting to take on Hughes or Edgar or Calvin Candie, he always sounds like Jack Dawson to me.  I may be in the minority, but I really liked Leo in Blood Diamond.
