Leo

Academy Awards weekend is finally here.  I cant' wait for Sunday night, one of my favorites of the year.  There are so many people I am hoping to win but no one more than Leonardo DiCaprio.  He has been so deserving for so many years (in my opinion), that it is time to award him for his amazing work.  He has won many Golden Globes but not an Oscar. I thought a timeline would be appropriate..

Did you know that one of Leo's first roles was as Mason Capwell on Santa Barbara?  BFF Denie and I raced home from school every day to watch that show...

Next stop, Growing Pains.. 


 This Boy's Life...


What's Eating Gilbert Grape..

Basketball Diaries...

Romeo + Juliet..

and then Titanic..and every girl in the world fell in love with him...

 The Beach..
Catch Me if You Can...


Gangs of New York...


and then The Aviator.  This is the film that should have garnered Leo his first Academy Award.  He was unbelievable playing Howard Hughes.  He lost to Jamie Foxx playing Ray Charles.

 One of my personal favorites, The Departed...
Blood Diamond...

 Shutter Island...
Revolutionary Road..teaming back up with Kate Winslet...

 Inception...
J. Edgar..
 D'Jango Unchained...
 Amazing in the Great Gatsby..

The Wolf of Wall Street..


and finally The Revenant!

I haven't seen The Revenant yet, but it definitely looks Oscar-worthy.
 My fingers are also crossed for Sylvester Stallone-always a favorite.

You know where I will be on Sunday,
xoxo, kp
