11 Roles Leonardo DiCaprio Should Have Won An Oscar For
Warner Bros.

Leonardo DiCaprio is known for his good looks and charming personality along with a great ability to act. He has won 84 of the 196 awards he has been nominated for. He started as a supporting cast member for the sitcom "Growing Pains" in 1985, but then started to take off in the 1990's, landing roles in both "Romeo and Juliet" (1996) and "Titanic" (1997). From that point on, his career sky-rocketed.

With such a great career already built, there is still one award that has never been in Leo's favor- the Oscar. More specifically, the Oscar for best performance by an actor in a leading role. It wasn't until this year that Leo finally took the award home, for his leading role in "The Revenant," making it his first in his long acting career. But, just because he technically won his first Oscar this year, doesn't mean that his other movies weren't "Oscar worthy." In fact, there are a handful of movies that I think Leo should have won an Oscar for.

1. What's Eating Gilbert Grape

2. Titanic

3. Blood Diamond

4. Catch Me If You Can

5. Aviator

6. Shutter Island

7. The Departed

8. Inception

9. The Great Gatsby

10. Django Unchained

11. The Wolf of Wall Street

Finally, in 2016, Leo won his first Oscar, but these 11 movies were more than Oscar-worthy. Despite having won only one Oscar, Leo is still one of the best actors to ever grace the screen.
