UM, BECAUSE, FINALLY.
Time to retire the Leo memes!!
Leonardo DiCaprio *FINALLY* Won Best Actor at the 88th Academy Awards for his role in the critically acclaimed epic, “The Revenant”.
Of course, being the true class act he is, despite waiting through 6 films to win an Oscar, Leo got his much deserved moment in the spotlight not to make it about himself, but to bring forth an important issue… climate change.
The 41-year-old actor said:
Climate change is real and it’s happening right now. We need to work together and stop procrastinating…
Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take this night for granted.
Look at Titanic co-star and best friend Kate Winslet welling up with pride:
