"Climate change is real, it is happening right now," said Leonardo DiCaprio (in photo) who won his first Oscars Best Actor trophy for The Revenant.

Sa kanyang ika-anim na nominations, napanalunan din sa wakas ng Hollywood actor na si Leonardo DiCaprio ang best actor award mula sa 88th Academy Awards or the Oscars para sa performance niya sa pelikulang The Revenant.

Ginampanan ni Leo ang papel ng isang lalakeng naghigante pagkatapos niyang dumaan sa maraming pagsubok sa kanyang buhay, kasama na roon ang muntik na siyang patayin ng isang wild bear sa gubat.

Napanalunan din ng The Revenant ang award for Best Director para kay Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu na nanalo din last year for Birdman.

Marami naman ang nagulat nang manalo bilang Best Picture ang pelikulang Spotlight.

Deserving naman sa Best Actress award ang Hollywood “It Girl” na si Brie Larson para sa kanyang pagganap bilang isang kidnap victim sa pelikulang Room.

Ito ang first Oscar nomination ni Brie na matagal nang lumalabas sa mga bit roles noong teenager pa lang siya.

Wagi naman bilang best supporting actress ang isa pang Hollywood It Girl na si Alicia Vikander for The Danish Girl. Ito ang kanyang first Oscar nomination.

Best Supporting Actor naman ang English actor na si Mark Rylance para sa pelikulang Bridge of Spies. Tinalo niya ang sentimental favorite na si Sylvester Stallone para sa pelikulang Creed.

Ang pelikulang Mad Max: Fury Road ang nakakuha ng pinakamaraming Oscar trophies. Anim na Oscar trophies ang napanalunan nito.

Ginamit ni Leonardo ang pagkakataon upang bigyang pansin ang isa sa kanyang advocacies: ang climate change.

Narito ang transcript ng acceptance speech ni Leonardo DiCaprio:

"Thank you all so very much. Thank you to the Academy, thank you to all of you in this room. I have to congratulate the other incredible nominees this year.

"The Revenant was the product of the tireless efforts of an unbelievable cast and crew. First off, to my brother in this endeavor, Mr. Tom Hardy. Tom, your talent on screen can only be surpassed by your friendship off screen… thank you for creating a transcendent cinematic experience.

"Thank you to everybody at Fox and New Regency…my entire team. I have to thank everyone from the very onset of my career… To my parents, none of this would be possible without you. And to my friends, I love you dearly, you know who you are.

"And lastly I just want to say this: Making The Revenant was about man's relationship to the natural world. A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history.

"Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow.

"Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this.

"For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted.

"Thank you so very much."
