Our Favorite Performances: Leonardo DiCaprio in The Aviator
Interesting
Category: Analysis
Tagged: Leonardo Dicaprio, The Aviator
Many people were upset and disappointed this year when Leonardo DiCaprio lost his fourth and fifth Oscar (Best Actor and Best Picture for The Wolf of Wall Street which he also produced) this year to Matthew McConaughey. While I would have loved for him to win, I knew that it wasn't going to happen. The Academy tends to pick winners that make one excellent movie, like Jean Dujardin for The Artist, Halle Berry for Monster's Ball, rather than actors constantly producing knockout performances in every film. Sure, there are exceptions like Daniel Day-Lewis and Cate Blanchett, but they are rare. "Why give the gold to someone who will continue to create a career of golden performances even if they lose?" That's the Academy's mantra. I think we all know deep down that eventually Leo's Oscar curse will break and until then we will continue to watch and root for him.
