Yes? Yes! Leonardo DiCaprio finally took home the gold! It’s about damn time, okay yes I don’t think this was his strongest performance out of the times he’s been nominated, but if it didn’t happen this year it probably wasn’t going to happen at all. And we all wanted so badly for this dream to come true, DiCaprio’s win is officially the most tweeted about moment in Oscar history, with something like 440,000 tweets per minute! But now that DiCaprio has his statuette, who else should we turn into a meme?
It was pointed out to me that there’s still a long list of excellent actors that still haven’t had their moment in the spotlight, most notably Gary Oldman. Never mind not having an Oscar yet, the fact that he’s only ever been nominated once is a crime in itself. But there’s also Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt and Sir Ian McKellen. Never mind the ladies that are missing out, like Jessica Chastain, Glenn Close, Amy Adams, Annette Benning and Sigourney Weaver.
So, before the Academy gives them a pat on the head with a Lifetime Achievement award, who do you think should have their own Best Actor/Actress win?
