Leonardo DiCaprio Might Just Have A Shot At Winning A Golden Globe This Time



The Hollywood Foreign Press Association honored DiCaprio on Thursday with a Golden Globe nomination for his wounded fur trapper role in “The Revenant,” which was set and shot in the unforgiving cold of western Canada. This is DiCaprio’s 15th nomination for a Globe or Oscar. However, things might just be a bit different this time.

DiCaprio praised the film while admitting that it is “the hardest thing he’s ever had to endure.” He said that even though having his talent recognized with nominations naturally feels good, it’s especially true for this movie, as it’s completely different than anything he’s done before.

He’s won two acting Globes out of the ten times he’s been nominated but has never scored an Oscar, though he has received four nominations for the Academy Award since the 90s – he was first nominated for “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?” way back in 1994.

DiCaprio plays Hugh Glass in “The Revenant,” a man on the early American frontier who is left for dead after a bear attack and has to find his way back to camp in order to settle some unfinished business with fellow trapper Fitzgerald, portrayed by Tom Hardy. Glass exhibits a certain desperation of purpose and innate struggle for survival that DiCaprio gracefully and effortlessly brings to the life.

So far, the film “Carol” is in the lead when speaking of the number of nominations. “The Big Short” and “The Revenant” are closely behind. Here’s a list of all the Golden Globe nominations, so you be the judge. Has DiCaprio got a chance to score a Golden Globe and possibly even an Oscar this year?
