After five previous misses, Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar for his grunting, gruff performance in Alejandro Inarritu’s The Revenant at Oscars 2016 on Monday. “Climate change is real,” said DiCaprio. “It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species. ... Let us not take our planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted.” Inarritu also won the Best Director award for the film. It is his second win in a row.
In an underdog win for a movie about an underdog profession, the newspaper drama Spotlight took Best Picture at the 88th Academy Awards on Sunday, where remarks on lack of diversity in Hollywood dominated proceedings. Tom McCarthy’s film about the Boston Globe’s investigative reporting on sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests won over the favoured frontier epic, The Revenant. The well-crafted procedural, led by a strong ensemble cast, had lagged in the lead-up to the Oscars, losing ground to the flashier filmmaking of Inarritu’s film.
Best Actress went to Brie Larson, the 26-year-old breakout of the mother-son captive drama Room.
Meanwhile, India couldn’t get enough of Priyanka Chopra walking the Oscar red carpet and giving away the Oscar for Best Film Editing. The award went to Mad Max Fury Road which won a record number of Oscars.
