[tps_footer]No matter how the 88th Academt Awards go, Leonardo DiCaprio will have an Oscar for himself. The star who fans argue deserved an Oscar ages ago, is at the butt of jokes on the internet for not winning the Oscar for years.
Fans of Leo in Russia’s Far East have made a statue for him that bears close resemblance to the Oscar prize and is made from donated precious metals. Nearly 150 of DiCaprio’s fans from the Yakutia region donated the 1.5 kilograms of silver and 4 grams of gold that was required to make the statue for the American actor, who is nominated in the best actor category for his role in “The Revenant.”
Famed for nominations but never winning at the Oscars, Leo has become a ‘meme’ on popular social networking sites. According to a fan, even if Leo didn’t win at the Academy Awards, their love for him would not decrease in the slightest. Leo would still be their favorite. The last time Leo was nominated for an Oscar, it was for ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ in 2014.
DiCaprio’s grandmother is of Russian descent and he has a very huge fan base in Russia. In 2010 he has even visited the Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss tiger conservation.
While Leo took home the Golden Globe this year for ‘Best Leading Actor’, we will just have to wait and see if the winning streak continues at the Oscars. It would finally break the spell of not winning an Oscar for the ‘Titanic’ star. The 88th annual Academy Awards will air Sunday,28th February 2016.[/tps_footer]
