1. Leonardo DiCaprio
The question everyone has been asking for an over a decade, has Leonardo DiCaprio won an Oscar? The answer has always been No so far. DiCaprio came close on three occasions.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s first Academy Award nomination
In 1993, for the 66th Academy Awards, Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated in the “Best Supporting Actor” category for the movie “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape”. Leonardo was only 17 when he got nominated for the Oscars for “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape”. That year Tommy Lee Jones won the Oscars for his performance in the movie The Fugitive.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s third Academy Award nomination
In 2006, Leonardo DiCaprio was again nominated for the Oscar for his brilliant performance in Blood Diamond. That year, Forest Whitaker beat Leonardo for his performance in “The Last King of Scotland” . I am sure this was a real close call, as Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance in Blood Diamond was on par with Forest Whitaker performance in “The Last King of Scotland”.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s fourth Academy Award nomination
For the 86th Academy Awards Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for the fourth time for the Academy Awards for his performance in “The Wolf of Wall Street”.

The answer is NO . Leonardo DiCaprio did not win the Oscars at the 86th Academy Awards, but Matthew Mcconaughey (Best Actor in a Leading Role) won the Oscar’s for Dallas Buyers Club.
