Will his role on “The Wolf of Wall Street” finally earn him the Oscar, after repeatedly getting nominated in the past years, for several movies, yet never actually won one, has been a taunting question to all of Leo’s loyal admirers? Or is 2014 going to be the year when the Prophecy is fulfilled; the grand jury holds a grudge against the natural-borne talent?
If we refer to his first nomination for Oscars Best Supporting Actor, as a 19 year old playing the retarded kid alongside Johnny Depp and Juliette Lewis in What’s eating Gilbert Grape, we’d all agree that compliments will only spoil the magic that lies behind his acting. Yet, he never won the prize. He was also previously nominated for Best Performing Lead actor in Blood Diamond (2006) and The Aviator (2004).
It seems that the seniors don’t take the guy seriously; the 39-year-old case of Benjamin Button that has most definitely defied the laws of nature into remaining young and fresh as a teenager. The fact that he is still after young, tall models which is now becoming more of an addiction than a prick is certainly not helping. What more does he have to do in order to prove that behind the good-guy-face there is a fearsome and passionate actor?
Wasn’t his exquisite performance in Django: Unchained (2012) enough? See for yourself…
As a matter a fact, he did actually cut his hand in this act, yet the show had to go on…so he improvised on what later became the best scene in the picture. Nevertheless, Oscar doesn’t seem to get it yet, Leo wasn’t even nominated.
2014, however was a good start after winning the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, and getting nominated in several movie festivals around the world including the Oscars. Is this the year?
Leo’s fans claim it better be, or else…
Leo D C better get an Oscar or we riot!
