When browsing your news feed this weekend in search of pre-Oscar show news, don’t be surprised when the only headline you find reads, ‘THIS IS LEO’S YEAR!’
The Internet has spoken, and the majority feels strongly about Leo nabbing the Oscar for his leading role in The Revenant (as they should). But if you’re among the few having doubts consider this—the man ate raw bison for the part when he was a devoted veggie. How’s that for method acting?
There’s a chance you’re sick of hearing about Leo’s year so let’s forget about The Revenant for a moment and reflect on all the times it could have been Leo’s year, but it wasn’t.
He stole our hearts right out the gate:
Lost to: Tommy Lee Jones, The Fugitive
And always managed to keep his chill after a loss:
Lost to: Jamie Foxx, Ray
Even though we knew he was capable of showing such real emotion:
Lost to: Forest Whitaker, Last King of Scotland
And after four losses, do you think he ever considered giving up?
Lost to: Matthew McConaughey, The Dallas Buyers Club
This is Leo’s year people, and he won’t go down without a fight:
Lost to: No one, hopefully.
