Leonardo DiCaprio: Best Actor Oscar Nominee

Leonardo DiCaprio has been nominated five times in Oscar acting categories, but will 2016 finally be his year for gold?

His performance as a frontiersman in “The Revenant” on a quest for revenge has earned him recognition once again.

But he’ll face off against Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars in “The Martian,” Bryan Cranston as a screenwriter blackballed because of his politics, Michael Fassbender in his turn as Apple cofounder Steve Jobs and Eddie Redmayne as a transsexual pioneer.

After claiming victories for “The Revenant” at the Golden Globes and SAGs, DiCaprio is the favorite for an Academy Award.
