American actor Leonardo DiCaprio has won the Academy Award for best actor for his work in movie ‘The Revenant’.

He once had an uncredited role as Darlene’s classmate in a 1991 episode of ‘Roseanne’. To date, DiCaprio has won over 40 awards and has been nominated six times for an Oscar.
This is his first win. The curse is broken.

expressed their excitement on Twitter for DiCaprio, who finally won best actor after receiving his fifth nomination in
the category, for his grueling performance in. The Revenant.
