Finally, the year 2016 turned positive for the actor to fulfil his dream of getting the Oscars at 2016 Oscars event for his role in the film "The Revenant".

After "Ttitanic", DiCaprio worked in globl hits like "The Man in the Iron Mask" (1998), the biographical crime drama "Catch Me If You Can" (2002) and the epic historical drama "Gangs of New York" (2002) which also marked his first association with director Martin Scorsese.

Edgar (2011), the western "Django Unchained" (2012), and the period drama "The Great Gatsby" (2013).

DiCaprio’s portrayal of Howard Hughes in "The Aviator" (2004) and Hugh Glass in "The Revenant" (2015) won him the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor and his role as Jordan Belfort in "The Wolf of Wall Street" (2013) won him the award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. He won his first BAFTA award for Best Actor and the Academy Award for Best Actor for "The Revenant".
