Oscars 2016: Leonardo DiCaprio Wins Best Actor

oscarsLeonardo DiCaprio has finally won his first Oscar for survival epic The Revenant, after six nominations.

He was named best actor at the 88th Academy Awards, with Brie Larson named best actress Oscar for Room.

Catholic Church abuse movie “Spotlight” was named best picture, the top award at Sunday’s Oscars ceremony, after a night peppered with punchlines from host Chris Rock about the #OscarsSoWhite controversy that has dominated the industry.

In a ceremony where no single movie commanded attention, Mexico’s Alejandro Inarritu nabbed the best directing Oscar for “The Revenant”, becoming the first filmmaker in more than 60 years to win back-to-back Academy Awards. Inarritu won in 2015 for “Birdman.”

“The Revenant” went into Sunday’s ceremony with a leading 12 nominations, and was among four movies believed to have the best chances for best picture after it won Golden Globe and BAFTA trophies.

The ambitious 20th Century Fox (FOXA.O) Pioneer-era tale, shot in sub-zero temperatures, also brought a first Oscar win for its star Leonardo DiCaprio, who got a standing ovation from the A-list Hollywood audience.

“I do not take tonight for granted,” DiCaprio said, taking the opportunity in his acceptance speech to urge action on climate change.

Yet voters in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences chose Open Road Films’ (RGC.N) “Spotlight,” which traces the Boston Globe’s 2003 Pulitzer Prize winning investigation of child sex abuse by Catholic priests, for best picture. The movie also won best original screenplay.

“This film gave a voice to survivors, and this Oscar amplifies that voice, which we hope can become a choir that will resonate all the way to the Vatican,” said producer Michael Sugar.

Rising star Brie Larson, 26, took home the statuette for best actress for her role as an abducted young woman in indie movie “Room,” adding to her armful of trophies from other award shows.

Idris Elba Wins Big At SAG Awards

idris elbaBritish actor, Idris Elba, has won for his roles in a detective drama ‘Luther’ and for his supporting role as an African warlord in ‘Beasts of No Nation’ at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.

The film, about the Boston Globe’s investigation of paedophile Catholic priests, won for best film cast.

But many of the main awards in Los Angeles were won by actors of diverse backgrounds, with industry magazine, Variety, noting that “diversity reigns”.

The awards came amid controversy over a lack of diversity among Oscar nominees.

The female prison series, ‘Orange Is The New Black’ won the ensemble award for a comedy series, and its star Uzo Aduba for best comedy actress in a television series.

The series has earned praise for its diverse cast and willingness to address race issues. Accepting the cast award, actress Laura Prepon referred to her cast mates, saying: “This is what we talk about when we talk about diversity.”

The three main acting awards were given to films with mainly white casts, Spotlight, The Revenant and Room, all of which are among the Oscar favourites.

Other main winners of the SAG Awards include:

Brie Larson (Room) – Best film actress
Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) – Best film actor
Queen Latifah (Bessie) – Outstanding performance by an actress in a TV miniseries or movie
Kevin Spacey (House of Cards) – Best actor in a television drama series
Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder) – Best actress in a television drama series
Downton Abbey – Best television drama ensemble.
