"Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow," said DiCaprio at the Oscars on Sunday.
As sure as the Sun, the Moon, and most basic laws of modern physics, Leonardo DiCaprio has won the Academy Award for best actor for his work in The Revenant. Presenter Julianne Moore, who won best actress at last year's awards, waited a respectable amount of time before announcing DiCaprio's name, as if to see if she could make time itself pause briefly in anticipation.

Stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Sylvester Stallone and many more react to their Oscar nominations that were announced yesterday.
Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Academy Award-winning film Birdman is a dark comedy set almost entirely in one theater and shot to look like a single take. Iñárritu's follow-up film is pretty much the polar opposite of that, although its Oscar ambition seems equally apparent.
If you think Birdman was extreme filmmaking, wait until you see what Alejandro González Iñárritu has in store for his follow-up. Shooting this month in Calgary (average nighttime low: 9 degrees) the writer-director has partnered with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy to tell the true story of Hugh Glass (DiCaprio), an American fur trapper and frontiersman in the early 1800s. After being mauled by a grizzly bear and left for dead, Glass made a heroic 200-mile trek back to civilization to find the men who abandoned him in his time of need, played by Hardy, Will Poulter, and Domnhall Gleeson.
Does the most famous man in the world feel the strain of living as the rest of us do? Or are the life choices he makes between one degree of wonderful and another?
