Leonardo DiCaprio on his Oscar nomination

The nominees for the 92nd Academy Awards were announced on January 13, 2020, in Beverly Hills and Leonardo DiCaprio earned his seventh Oscar nomination for ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’.

“I’d like to thank the Academy for recognizing my work along with the incredible performances of my fellow nominees,” the previous Oscar winner, for The Revenant, said. “I’ve been incredibly fortunate, with this film, to have partnered with brilliant collaborators in Quentin Tarantino, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie. This film is an homage to the city of Los Angeles, and I had the opportunity to portray an actor facing his own obsolescence, at a time when our culture was going through massive change. This film in many ways is a tribute to all those who were a part of this industry. Cinema is, and continues to be a powerful form of free artistic expression. This film along with so many others this year, were truly original and impactful. I hope as we progress, we continue to see even more of them. I feel honored to be a part of it all. Thank you again.”

Also, ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ received 10 Academy Award nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Brad Pitt), Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Directing, Best Production Design, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Writing (Original Screenplay).
