Leonardo DiCaprio has finally won his first Oscar. He was named the Best Actor at the 88th Academy Awards, for his role in ‘The Revenant’. The crowd gave DiCaprio a standing ovation as he picked up his award.
The win came after five acting nominations and one nomination as producer of ‘Wolf of Wall Street’, which was a Best Picture nominee, in the past. His first nomination came for his role in the 1993 film ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’. His journey can be a lesson for entrepreneurs.
Apart from winning the title, he gave an extraordinary speech, making the world understand that a speech should not only be limited to a film. If you believe in a cause or an idea then you should leave no stone unturned to spread your message.
In his acceptance speech he said, “Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted.”
He made sure of not being swayed away by his success and to stay focused at your aim at all times.
