Firstly, let me just say that I really love Leonardo DiCaprio. I've waited a long time to see him get an Oscar, and I think that he should've won several Oscars in the past. However, I don't think that he should've won an Oscar for this film. People should win Oscars because they deserve them. Not just because we love them and think that their Oscar is well-overdue. This internet craze of people who use to complain every time he didn't win an Oscar gets tiring after a while. For the majority of this movie, the main emotion Leo was showing was anguish, and he was also grunting through most of the movie. That's not to say that he did a bad job at doing this. I thought that he did a great job at this. However, at the end of the day, anguish was being used for the majority of his screen time, and it is also a very relatable emotion. I'd rather just give the Oscar to someone else, and wait and see what Leo does next time.
When I originally watched this movie, I said that he should win an Oscar, and I was sort of jumping on the "give Leo an Oscar" bandwagon. However, after looking at other opinions, several other people sort of opened my eyes up a bit more and allowed me to see this at a different perspective that I wasn't looking in before. I still think that this movie is a 9/10, but I might factor this thought into my original review sometime in the future.
Now, before I end this post, let me just crack a quick joke so we can all go out on a high note.
Some Guy: The Oscars are so shit because they keep on snubbing Leonardo DiCaprio from getting Oscars. They suck for not sharing my opinion!
The Same Guy: I love the Oscars since they are conforming to my expectations!
