Leonardo DiCaprio did not get an Oscar this year, yet again. The fact has enraged and disappointed his fans who took to Twitter to express their displeasure. Sometimes funny, mostly sarcastic, the tweets began immediately after the Oscar for the best actor in a leading role was announced.
Many had hoped that the 39-year-old actor would finally get his first Oscar almost 20 years after he was first nominated. However, Matthew McConaughey was throughout the frontrunner for the best actor Oscar for his turn in Dallas Buyers Club and finally went home with the prized statuette.
Dicaprio was nominated for his portrayal of financial crook Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street.
When Leo became a victim of McConnaisance: a meme doing the rounds.
While Stereotypewritter tweeted "LK Advani will become PM before #LeonardoDiCaprio gets an Oscar," IndiaSpeaks wrote, "#LeonardoDiCaprio calls the Oscars 2014 fixed. Joins AAP with immediate effect."
