If you think long and hard about it, DiCaprio won the Oscar for playing a young reprobate who finds love before tragedy bangs in Titanic (1997); he won it for playing the eccentric Howard Hughes in The Aviator (2005) and for playing the undercover cop in The Departed (2006). He got it for playing the ‘party-hopper’ Jordan Belfort in Wolf of Wall Street (2013) and for playing an Irish brawler in The Gangs of New York (2002).

The Titanic fame actor won the prestigious award for excellently playing all the roles that proved him to be amongst the topmost Hollywood actors.
