Baku, February 29, AZERTAC

As sure as the sun, the moon, and most basic laws of modern physics, Leonardo DiCaprio has won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his work in The Revenant, according to Theverge.

Presenter Julianne Moore, who won Best Actress at last year's awards, waited a respectable amount of time before announcing DiCaprio's name, as if to see if she could make time itself pause briefly in anticipation.

To date, DiCaprio has won over 40 awards and has been nominated six times for an Oscar. This is his first win.

Following an extended applause, DiCaprio thanked fellow nominees, the cast and crew of The Revenant.
