We all know the happy news by now, Leonardo Dicaprio won an Oscar! At the 88th Academy Awards, Leo won his first Oscar out of six nominations. It’s about time!
Before we keep going, let’s say goodbye to some of the hilarious no-Oscar memes we’ve taken part in over the years.
And let’s say hello to all of the new memes we get to enjoy with this happy “LEO GOT AN OSCAR!” glow.

Okay, now that we’ve gone through those motions, here are the six nominations that Leo was up for and sadly did not win an Oscar for.
For Best Supporting Actor, Leo was nominated for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993). For the roles of Best Actor he was nominated in 2005, 2007, 2014, and this year for his roles in The Aviator, Blood Diamond, The Wolf of Wall Street, and The Revenant. He also had a nomination for Best Picture for The Wolf of Wall Street since he was a producer for the film.
