Leonardo DiCaprio’s Missing Oscar

I’ve got to give credit to Wikipedia for inserting an “Lost to” column to the list of Nominations and Awards won by Leonardo DiCaprio. Leonardo DiCaprio has failed to won an oscar not because the academy seems to be biased, but because of the fact that he lost the awards to actors or performances better than his or equal.

Tommy Lee Jones for The Fugitive, a film which still remains in my list of all time favourites accompanied by the brilliance of Harrison Ford. Jamie Foxx for Ray,  biographical film on the life of the blues musician Ray Charles, in which Jamie Foxx performace was , according to me, the best of his lifetime, certainly deserved the oscar just as much as Leo. Forest Whitaker for The Last King of Scotland, based on Uganda’s dictator Idi Amin, being played by Forest Whitaker, was a mind blowing performance and became (to me) a gateway movie to the African Poverty and Civil wars. Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club, well I’m not going to say much about McConaughey’s brilliant 2013 and now 2014. Just watch what a straight forward, clear minded person he is. His oscar winning speech for Dallas Buyers Club, Best Actor

Im not Anti – Leonardo DiCaprio, I can never be. He is a amazing actor, his performances in  films such as Titanic (1997), Catch Me If You Can (2002), Gangs of New York (2002), Blood Diamond (2006), The Departed (2006), Revolutionary Road (2008), Shutter Island (2010), Inception(2010), and Django Unchained (2012) are just unforgettable.
