Leonardo DiCaprio gets his first Oscar. Finally!!

3 min read

The red carpet is rolled, the stars are all decked, the curtain’s raised… Hollywood’s biggest night – the 88th Academy Awards are here! Oscars 2016. While this year has been touted as Leonardo DiCaprio’s year, what with his friends and Academy members speaking out in favour of him, it is yet to be seen if he indeed bags the trophy that has eluded him all these years.

When the nominations were out on January 14 this year, the Oscars received much backlash from all over the world with the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite taking all over the social networking world. All eyes are set on Chris Rock, the acid-tongued Oscars host this year. Whether he will blast the Academy over their oh-so-white choices or he will take a more traditional approach is yet to be seen.

Oscars 2016 comes as a matter of pride for Indians all over the year too. Our Desi Girl Priyanka Chopra, who is winning laurel after laurel in the West, is among the presenters at this year’s Academy Awards.
