Leonardo DiCaprio Gets Best Actor Oscar Engraved (VIDEO)
Leonardo DiCaprio looked on with delight as his Best Actor Oscar statue got engraved at the Governor’s Ball during an after party for the 88th annual Academy Awards. Watch the video below!
As Gossip Cop reported, DiCaprio finally won his first Oscar for his performance in The Revenant at Sunday night’s ceremony. The actor, who had been nominated for five previous Oscars, wasn’t aware that the winner gets their trophy etched at the end of the ceremony. “Do you do this every year? I wouldn’t know,” DiCaprio joked as the engraver worked on his statue.
The grinning actor mostly kept his composure while patiently waiting to be handed the final product, but at one point, he can be seen drumming his fists on the table in anticipation. After receiving his finished Oscar, the actor was then handed a pamphlet with instructions on how to keep the trophy in good shape. “How to take care of it? How to maintain it? What does it need?,” an amped up DiCaprio asked the etcher.
During DiCaprio’s acceptance speech, as Gossip Cop noted, the actor took the opportunity to address the dangers of climate change, and implore the world “not take this planet for granted.” Watch DiCaprio get his first-ever Oscar engraved in the video below!
