This is the millionth year in which Leonardo DiCaprio has been snubbed by the Oscars, but this time he hasn’t even been nominated.  Why is Leonardo DiCaprio so continually overlooked by the Academy when it comes to his versatile and brilliant performances?

Revolutionary Road – alright, it was a boring movie that was far more of a showcase for Kate Winslet than it was for him, and by and large, it was overlooked by everyone, not just by the Academy.  J. Edgar – also a weak movie that had Leo hamming it up more than ‘acting’.  
 
However, his performances in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Titanic, The Departed, Blood Diamond, and Catch Me If You Can are all brilliant and as definitive as the movies that they’re showcased in.  What’s Eating Gilbert Grape was one of DiCaprio’s earlier movies, and he manages the difficult task of pulling off a mentally retarded youth without being insulting or over-the-top.  Titanic, famous for launching DiCaprio into the stratosphere, didn’t even net him a nomination, although his co-star Kate Winslet ended up getting a nomination.  The Departed and Blood Diamond both came out in the same year so the Academy could hardly deny Leo a nomination, but alas, they denied him the trophy yet again.  Catch Me If You Can was snubbed by the Academy for almost all of its categories, apart from Best Supporting Actor.

So why has Leo been overlooked all these years?  Those who say he doesn’t deserve it have clearly not been watching his movies.  But it’s true that while Leo has been overlooked, many of his co-stars in his film have managed to net Oscar wins – most notably Kate Winslet. So that really comes down to this – the Academy doesn’t seem to think it’s Leo’s time yet.  The fact that Leo also refuses to show up during the years he’s not nominated a sign of protest [as he did during Titanic’s nominations, and once again during Kate Winslet’s win] could just be another reason why the Academy refuses to give him his statue.  So our advice to Leo:  be grateful to the Academy, and no matter how much you hate it, go and mingle with voters.  Otherwise, you’ll be getting your Lifetime achievement award at age 70 without a single Best Actor statue.
