For years, people have poked fun at Leonardo DiCaprio and his bad luck when it comes to the Oscars.
Until 2016 the actor had been nominated three times for Best Actor, once for Best Supporting Actor, and once for Best Picture, as producer. He lost all five times.
The Oscar-less DiCaprio became a popular object of fun, especially around Oscar season.
This impressive slideshow shows how creative the internet can be when it comes to taunting celebrities
This year, some were afraid of what might happen if DiCaprio lose out to Matt Damon
Or that reality would meet fiction
After the announcement, the internet celebrated with Photoshop montages
Congrats, Leo :DSources:- Leo pic: <a rel="noreferrer nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://twitter.com/r_cicerone/status/557617115319242752">https://twitter.com/r_cicerone/status/557617115319242752</a>- Oscar pic: <a rel="noreferrer nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://alien3287.deviantart.com/art/PNG-Stock-Oscar-Statue-488974521">http://alien3287.deviantart.com/art/PNG-Stock-Oscar-Statue-488974521</a>
It was a long time coming
And thus a meme was retired
Unless it was all a dream, like in Inception
Or maybe the announcement was a mix-up, like for Miss Universe?
But rest assured, the internet has found a new Oscar-less actor to mock: Gary Oldman
