“The Revenant” director Alejandro Inarritu and star Leonardo Dicaprio joined hands backstage, talking to reporters about their Oscar wins.
DiCaprio, finally a winner after 25 years in the business and four nominations, talked about the quick rise of Inarittu and his cameraman, Emmanuel Lubezki, aka Chivo.
“It’s incredible that two outsiders, came from Mexico, came to our industry were firm in their beliefs artistically, and here we have a two-time winner at the Academy Awards and with Chivo, a three-time winner I’m so proud to be working with these guys, these guys represent everything that this industry is and what it should be.”
DiCaprio, 41, had been nominated four times previously for an acting Oscar over a career spanning 25 years. He was the favorite to clinch the Academy Award this year for his grueling portrayal of a fur trapper left for dead in an icy wilderness after being mauled by a bear.
