After five nominations, Leonardo DiCaprio finally got his Oscar.
DiCaprio won the best actor Academy Award last night for his role in “The Revenant” and used his speech to push for action on climate change. Here’s a clip:
Brie Larson won best actress for the Canadian co-produced, mother-son captive drama “Room.”Best picture went to the newspaper drama “Spotlight”, a film about the Boston Globe’s investigative reporting on sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests.
The best supporting actor awards went to Alicia Vikander for the “The Danish Girl” and Mark Rylance for “Bridge of Spies.”
