Social media celebrate Leonardo DiCaprio's win

Leonardo DiCaprio receives his first Oscar award after being nominated six times!


Finally, Leonardo DiCaprio wins an Oscar award for Best actor for his role in The Revenant at the recently-concluded 88th Academy Awards.

It's his first Oscar after being nominated six times—five times as an actor, once as a producer.

He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in What's Eating Gilber Grape (1993); Best Actor for The Aviator (2005), Blood Diamond (2007), The Wolf of Wall Street (2014), and The Revenant (2016).

As a producer, Leonardo was nominated in the movie The Wolf of Wall Street.

So, imagine the excitement when the Titanic actor was announced as the Best Actor earlier.

Social media came ready with these GIFs and memes celebrating Leo's victory:

IT HAPPENED.
