Oscars 2016: See Leonardo DiCaprio get his Academy Award engraved
Leonardo DiCaprio received his first of six Oscar nominations in 1994, but it was his role as Hugh Glass in The Revenant that finally won him an Academy Award. The 41-year-old star took home the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role at Sunday night’s Oscars, and not long after, DiCaprio got to watch his statue get engraved at the Governors Ball after party.
He looks on with a smile as the technician at affixes the plaque to his Oscar, and jokes about the newness of the experience. “Do you do this every year?” he asks the technician in a video, courtesy of Variety. “I wouldn’t know.”
Once the job is done, DiCaprio realizes he’s now responsible for the upkeep of the hardware he waited more than two decades for. “I have to take good care of it,” the California native says. “I have to maintain it.”
