How many Academy Awards and Oscar nominations does Leonardo DiCaprio have?
Let’s take a look at how many Oscars Leo DiCaprio has won and how many times he has been nominated for Hollywood’s biggest award
Talking about Leonardo DiCaprio is talking about cinema. One of the best actors of the 21st century. A person committed to the environment and constantly fighting against climate change. Born in Hollywood in 1974, DiCaprio has Italian and German ancestry: his father George is the son of Italian immigrants and his mother Irmelin was born in Germany just at the end of World War II.
The beginnings of DiCaprio’s career
DiCaprio made his first appearances in the early 1990s, in various advertisements and television series as famous as ‘Growing Pains’. His first film was the last of the Critters saga, ‘Critters 3′, and from there he began to take on more important roles.
In 1996 he starred in ‘Romeo + Juliet’ and in 1997 came the iconic role of Jack in ‘Titanic’. Since then and to the present, DiCaprio has become one of the biggest movie stars in history and has played roles that will be remembered such as ‘The Great Gatsby’, ‘Inception’, ‘Shutter Island’, ‘The Departed’, ‘Gangs of New York’, ‘The Man in the Iron Mask’, ‘The Beach’, and ‘Catch Me If You Can’.
Highs in his cinematic career, lows at the Oscars
However, his good work in front of the cameras has not been entirely recognized at the Oscars. He has been nominated for Best Actor up to six times for the following films: ‘The Aviator’, ‘Blood Diamond’, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, ‘The Revenant’, and ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’. Of these nominations, he has only won the Oscar thanks to his role as Hugh Glass in ‘The Revenant’. In addition, he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’, also without a statuette.
In addition to the Oscar for ‘The Revenant’, he has won three Golden Globes and a BAFTA Award. Awards aside, DiCaprio is, for many, one of the great actors in the history of cinema.
