Leonardo DiCaprio wins best actor Oscar
LOS ANGELES - Leonardo DiCaprio finally has an Oscar after winning the best actor Academy Award for his performance in the survival epic "The Revenant."
DiCaprio has been nominated five times for acting Oscars, dating back to 1993's "What's Eating Gilbert Grape." Acting's highest honor has eluded him despite years of strong performances in films such as "The Aviator," and "The Wolf of Wall Street."
He played fur trapper Hugh Glass in director Alejandro Inarritu's "The Revenant," which involved the actor plunging into icy waters and eating raw bison to portray his character's efforts to survive in the wilderness after a bear attack.
