HOLLYWOOD – After winning his long awaited first Oscar award for Best Actor in the 88th annual Academy awards, reportedly Leonardo DiCaprio dropped and broke his Oscar award.
Leonardo DiCaprio won the Best Actor award for his role in the film ‘The Revenant’. Upon winning, he gives a shout out to Tom Hardy, director Alejandro Iñárritu, Michael Caton-Jones his team and his parents.
The shocking incident happened when Leonardo DiCaprio was leaving the Dolby Theater, (where the Oscars were being held) with the award in his hand, when suddenly Leo decides to hold up the award to a nearby camera and it slipped.
Apparently Leo did not have a good grip on the award, and the momentum of him raising his arm caused the golden statuette to go flying a few feet, breaking in 3 parts as it landed on the concrete floor.
It is very unlikely that the Academy awards will send Leonardo a replacement. “And this is why he never won until today”, Cheryl Boone told reporters at the scene.
