This is a really significant event and not only for Leo but for all of us, especially the internet community ;)
He’s been waiting.
We’ve been waiting.
We’ve all been waiting. “Waiting for what?” you ask.
I THINK YOU KNOW, FRIEND.
WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR LEONARDO DICAPRIO TO WIN A FUCKING OSCAR.
Leo has suffered. We have suffered with him.
But that suffering ENDED TONIGHT.
LEONARDO DICAPRIO HAS WON A GODDAMN OSCAR.
HE LOOKED LIKE MAYBE HE DIDN’T THINK IT WOULD HAPPEN…
…BUT IT HAPPENED. IT FUCKING HAPPENED.
Cate Blanchett was SO happy for him.
Kate Winslet stood up and looked on with pride.
He looked SO HAPPY.
Here’s the EXACT moment Leo was presented with his Oscar.
AND HERE IS LEONARDO DICAPRIO HOLDING AN OSCAR. AN OSCAR HE, LEONARDO DICAPRIO, WON.
GRIPPING THAT OSCAR LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW.
GOD BLESS US EVERYONE.
Here are the best internet reactions after the Oscars.
That’s right. After six nominations, Leo finally snagged him a little golden statue for his role in The Revenant.
And perhaps no one has rooted for Leo more than the internet, and this is how they reacted to his win:
People were overwhelmed with joy for DiCaprio… and shared memes of how he’s ~probably~ feeling right now…
…it’s surprising he didn’t begin his acceptance speech like this, right?
It happened. We can now all tell our grandchildren about this glorious moment.
Oh, you know Leo’s updating his Facebook status ASAP.
And he’ll probably be celebrating A LOT tonight.
As expected, the internet had NO chill.
Not even a smidgen of chill…
…because everyone was so happy it finally happened.
He’s waited so long for this. *”A Moment Like This” by Kelly Clarkson plays in the background*
Slam dunk, Leo!
A national holiday in Leo’s honor would be niiiiice.
And of course, there was a joke about the bear from The Revenant thrown into the mix.
Leo winning now means that the jokes about him being Oscar-less are now DONE. FOREVER.
It had a great run!
But it was all fun while it lasted.
But sadly enough, now we have to say good-bye to all the "Oscarless Leo" memes... Take your hats off gents, 'cause we lost a good meme today...
Every night in my dreams…
…I see you, I feeeeeeel you…
…that is how I know you…
Far across the distance…
…and spaces between us…
…you have come to show you… go on.
…wherever you are.
I believe that the heart does…
…you open the door…
…and you’re here in my heart and…
…my heart will go on…
