Leo Robbed or Just Bad Luck?

Junkie Monkeys: Last night Matthew McConaughey shined brightly as he won the Oscar for Best Actor in Dallas Buyers Club. McConaughey’s win meant that once again, Leonardo DiCaprio went home Oscar-less. While many debate whether the 39 year old actor was robbed, let’s try to look at this whole situation logically for a moment.

I don't think he was robbed. I think its bad luck. The roles he has been nominated for have been pretty weak in my opinion. Departed would have made a great nomination and he probably would have won. I really enjoyed Wolf of Wall Street however McConaughey did do a fantastic bit of work. Gangs of new york would have been another great one if he was nominated.

I feel for him but if I am honest. I feel that he has only started to do worthy films since 2002 when he done Gangs of New York. Before then I felt that he done "boy" rolls and after Gangs he done roles for men which made him a more enjoyable actor to watch.

In my view his good films are Gangs of New York, Catch Me If You Can, The Departed, Blood Diamond, Shutter Island, Inception, J. Edgar, Django Unchained and The Wolf of Wall Street. All the roles in those films were really good I thought.

He needs to sort his projects out and work on some award winning roles such as the film Devil in the White City which would be really good.

you my friend are about to meet a world of pain.

He should have won at least 2 Oscars by now, Aviator and The departed/Catch me if you can.

I wouldn't say Blood Diamond or J. Edgar were Oscar worthy...

Pozzle3189d ago

Or Shutter Island, for that matter.

Though the problem isn't necessarily that Leo isn't playing award-winning roles. The problem is that he is always up against such strong competition. Matthew McConaughey played an incredible role and deserved the win imo.

Since when did it become Leo's god given right to win an Oscar? Personally I don't much care for his acting, he comes off as a little too man-childish for me. He did give impressive performances in films like Shutter Island and The Aviator, but I don't buy him for a second as a badass undercover detective in The Departed. That being said his performance in TWOWS was great, he pretty much carried the whole movie, but it wasn't head over heels better than all the other nominees.

He was amazing in Departed i stopped taking you serious there.

Leo just has to make a movie not alot of people will see and about some artsy crap or slaves.

The awards are a joke anyways.

RetrospectRealm3189d ago

He'll get one at the end of his career much like Scorsese and Hitchcock.

Blood Diamond an "ok" movie?! wow!

awiseman3189d ago

Blood Diamond doesn't have any communist/socialist propaganda so it is sub-par. Didn't you get the new Hollywood guidelines?

SilentNegotiator3189d ago

No pro-LGBT messages, no anti-FDA/USA messages, no US slavery...Blood Diamond sucks. /s

leonardo di caprio is to the movie industry what cristiano ronaldo is to football.

no matter how hard they work and prove more than ever they are the best, the votes say differently and they just have to accept it and try harder.

McConaughey deserved the oscar more. Leo's a great actor but he's definitely not the best. IMO, Daniel Day-Lewis is the best actor alive

DDL is an amazing actor but Tbh he is not the best!, he just picks amazing roles! He does one movie every other year! AL pacino and Jack Nicholson are the best actors! Because they do and have done all sort of movies, bad movies and good movies.

I have never seen DDL hold a bad movie all by himself! Every movie he has made has had an amazing script! DiCaprio held this movie together! He's about the only reason I watched Tbh, everything else was average!

TheOneEyedHound3189d ago

DDL is right at the top, but no one is better then Robert Di Niro. Jack nicholson is 2nd IMO, then DDL.

Ronaldo isnt the best he isnt robbed of anything. Messi is far better and has the records to prove it. It takes an injures Messi for Ronaldo to win the balon d or. But nothing wrong with second best.
