Leonardo DiCaprio wins Oscar Best Actor Award

After six nominations, 41-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio finally took home his first Oscar on Sunday night for his role in "The Revenant."

DiCaprio got his first nomination nearly two decades ago at age 22 for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape."

He was nominated as the best actor in leading role for five times totally, including this year.

He was also nominated as a producer for "The Wolf of Wall Street" at the 86th Academy Awards Ceremony.

An ABC News online report said that "To play an 1820s fur trapper, DiCaprio endured subzero temperatures, sat in makeup for five hours to get 47 different prosthetics, shot an intricate stunt sequence involving a bear attack during a torrential rainstorm, ate raw bison liver and lived with a long, scraggly beard for a year and a half. No other best actor nominee can say that."

DiCaprio also received Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA awards this year.

Mexico's Alejandro Inárritu won the best director Oscar for drama "The Revenant" about a fur-trapper who survives a bear attack and treks across a desolate landscape in winter. Inárritu was the first filmmaker in 60 years to win a back-to-back director's Oscar. Inárritu won best director last year for "Birdman," which also won the 2015 best picture Academy Award.

It was the fourth Oscar for Inárritu and came as little surprise after he won a Golden Globe, a British BAFTA award and a trophy from the Directors Guild Awards for the film.

Mark Rylance and Alicia Vikander won the Oscar Awards for Best Supporting Actor and Actress separately.

Rylance, 56, beat Sylvester Stallone, Christian Bale, Tom Hardy and Mark Buffalo to win the award. He plays a Soviet spy in Steven Spielberg's cold war thriller "Bridge of Spies."

Rylance's theatre performances have brought him three Tony awards.

Vikander, a 27-year-old Swedish actress and dancer, won the best supporting actress for her role in Tom Hooper's transgender drama "The Danish Girl." The film focuses on the first ever recipient of gender reassignment surgery and the effect this has on his marriage.

Vikander thanked her parents while receiving her Oscar statuette, saying "thank you for giving me the belief anything can happen."

She beat Kate Winslet, Jennifer Leigh, Rooney Mara and Rachel McAdams for the award.

Vikander has also won the Screen Actors Guild award for her role.
