Leo is tipped to finally win after being nominated several times before. Everyone knows he should have won for his original nomination for his supporting role in What's Eating Gilbert Grape, however his role in The Revenant wills surely bring him Oscar glory.
With the award comes the speech, and we all know too well of the familiar get-off-the-stage-music-queue that forces the Hollywood players to talk louder and a little faster. Here are my top five Oscar speeches of all time.
His speech only confirms what we already know. He is humble, and an all round nice guy.
Tarantino's speech in 2013 touched on the one subject every screenplay writer dreads. After creating a character; after putting your blood, sweat and tears to create someone real, casting is the most important aspect to make your story a reality.
Then she delivered a speech effortlessly, shaking off her clumsiness in front of millions. So we fell in love with her a little more.
He thanks everybody. He loves everybody. The most interesting thing about his speech is his likeness to the character he played which won him the oscar. If only we could all be as excitable as Gooding Jr.
Spielberg touches on a subject that so many forget once a story is adapted to the big screen. Often these stories are adapted from a book, and without the writers, there will be no stories.
Thanks for flying the flag Spielberg.
