Here's The One Thing Leonardo DiCaprio Fans Need To Know Before The Oscars
Leading up to Sunday's 2016 Oscars ceremony, there has been a whole lot of chatter surrounding Leonardo DiCaprio and the fact that he's never won an Oscar. The Revenant star has now been nominated five times. He scored nods for 2014's The Wolf of Wall Street, 2007's Blood Diamond, 2005's The Aviator, and 1994's What's Eating Gilbert Grape. And now he's earned even more recognition from the Academy with 2016's nomination for his brooding portrayal of Hugh Glass in The Revenant, which could mark his first win at the Academy Awards. And while he's certainly deserving of being recognized for all of the above films (and let's be honest, 1996's Titanic, too) it's worth mentioning that one huge star has been snubbed just as many times than Leo. Amy Adams has been nominated for an Academy Award five times — and never won.
The actor was nominated most recently for a Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role award for 2014's American Hustle. In 2013 she earned a Best Supporting nod for The Master. Before that, the 41-year-old scored nominations for 2011's The Fighter, 2009's Doubt, and 2006's Junebug. So while Leo has been nominated four times and lost four times, there's a very good chance he could take home a golden statue during Sunday night's show. So please, chill out Leo fans, I'm sure Amy Adams fans are just as upset.
Adams isn't the only actor to out-nom Leo. Peter O'Toole was nominated for an incredible seven Academy Awards before finally winning an honorary award in 2013. Glenn Close, known for such hits as The Big Chill and Dangerous Liaisons, has been nominated a staggering six times and never won.
So take a deep breath, Leonardo DiCaprio mega-fans, if he doesn't win during Sunday night's ceremony. There's always next year. Or the year after that...
