Is it just me, or does someone from The Academy not like Leonardo? It seems that he never gets nominated in some movies that he performed excellent roles in. I still think he should of won best actor in Titanic fourteen years ago!! I mean what about all of his other great roles he was in: What’s Eating Gilbert’s Grape, Romeo and Juliet, Catch Me If You Can, The Aviator, The Departed, Blood Diamond, Inception, must I go on?
I’m still mad Leonardo didn’t get nominated. He deserves that Oscar. He puts so much time and effort into each and every one of his characters. I’m not saying the other guys don’t deserve it, I just feel Leo’s performance in J. Edgar was better than their performances. Leo gets snubbed every year and it’s just not right. The winners should be judged based on who’s performance is the best and not based on who’s on the most magazine covers.
I don’t know exactly what Leonardo DiCaprio has to do to get an Oscar nomination. He is consistently fantastic in every single movie he does. Who in the world has Leo made mad? His total immersion into the part of J Edgar Hoover was nothing less than spectacular. No one deserves an Oscar more. However, George Clooney and Brad Pitt play the Hollywood game. They want Clooney and his date and Brad and Angelina in the front row. Makes for a lot of press and popularity. Leonardo generally brings his mother a nice touch if you ask me. After all, he could bring any one of the super models he dates, but he prefers to let his mom shine. Nice guy, unbelievably great actor. The Academy is all politics.
