Leonardo DiCaprio Inches Closer to Coveted Oscar Award with The Revenant

73rd Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama goes to DiCaprio; can The Revenant reinvigorate Leo’s hopes of winning an Oscar?  DiCaprio’s snubbing of an Oscar has always been a point of contention. With such a prolific career, how could an actor of Leo’s caliber be overlooked during the awards season? At the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, Leo inched closer to that dream winning a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama for The Revenant, an 1800s epic exploring fur trapper Hugh Glass’ path of vengeance against those who have killed his son and left him for dead after a vicious bear attack. The film itself won numerous accolades, taking Best Motion Picture and Best Director. Despite the production being mired by the wilderness and the elements, not to mention the limited amounts of daylight, both director Alejandro González Iñárritu and the actor ascended to sweet, blissful victory. Could this be a premonition for Leo taking home his long-awaited Oscar, or is there even any correlation between the Golden Globes and the Oscars? Perhaps a co-star (see Matthew McConaughey in Wolf of Wall Street) will end up snatching it away from his grasps before him—like this bear.   Words by Kenneth Vu
