20 Of The Best Leonardo DiCaprio Oscar Memes

20 Of The Best Leonardo DiCaprio Oscar Memes

Since we can't make these jokes and memes anymore.

Now that Leonardo DiCaprio has won his inevitable Oscar for Best Actor in "The Revenant" at the 88th Annual Academy Awards, a.k.a. the Oscars, on February 28, 2016, I wanted to compile a list of the funniest Leo Oscar-less jokes and memes that have been created. Especially since he won this past Sunday, we won't really be able to make anymore of them or really circulate them ('cause it's no longer the case).

To provide some background, this is Leo's fifth nomination and first win in his long and prosperous acting career (although he is still only really just getting started; we have many more years to enjoy his talent). His first nomination was in 1994 for Best Supporting Actor in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" The next nominations for Best Actor was in 2005, 2007 and 2014 for "The Aviator," "Blood Diamond" and "The Wolf of Wall Street."

Now, in 2016, he was nominated once again for Best Actor in a Leading Role for "The Revenant," for which he won his first Oscar. He was up against Bryan Cranston in "Trumbo," Matt Damon in "The Martian," Michael Fassbender in "Steve Jobs" and Eddie Redmayne in "The Danish Girl." An IMDb poll of the Best Actor category currently had DiCaprio leading with 70 percent of the vote, which I was in favor of (it was definitely Leo's time).

1. These memes have been very popular on the internet, with the rise of memes

2. Leo Oscar memes popularity circulated (heavily) in 2014 when he was nominated for "The Wolf of Wall Street"

3. Unfortunately, Leo lost (like many other prior nominations) to Matthew McConaughey

4. Which led to a fluttering of memes and jokes about that loss

5. And then the overall loss of never winning an Oscar started as well.

6. The memes have crossed wonderful and clever territories.

7. For example, this dad joke (that continues the meme above)

8. In Leo's films





9. They're immensely enjoyable, seeing people integrate the loss in his films

10. In everyday pop culture

11. Like "The Simpsons"

12. And in "Frozen"

13. It has been a sad but fun ride (of memes for the Internet)

And ...

14. But mostly sad for Leo (until now)

15. Poor Leo (but for no longer)

16. To have been so close, but so far from something

17. It must have been frustrating

18. I bet this is what he dreamt, and most likely had nightmares about, before winning

19. Fortunately, he was finally acknowledged

20. This is definitely not the only time Leo will touch an Oscar (and he finally has one he can call his own)

Here are some bonus memes (gifs) that are too funny not to include:

Lastly:

Leo doesn't have to look any farther because he has it at last.

This was definitely fun to do and we'll see where the future of these memes will go now that Leo is a winner. Yes, we can joke about this, but this doesn't take away from the fact that Leo will always be a talented actor no matter what, with or without an Oscar.

There are so many talented actors and actresses who haven't won (and sometimes the Oscar is awarded to mediocre people but that's another article). Anyway, here's to what Leo has in store for us next — let's see how he can top eating raw bison liver and sleeping inside of dead animals. All in all, these jokes can now be laid to rest. RIP Leo Oscar Memes and Oscar-less Leo (1994-2016). You all will be truly missed (prob' not by Leo though).

We all have those days where we let the negative thoughts that we're "not good enough," "not pretty enough" or "not smart enough" invade our minds. It's easy to lose hope in these situations and to feel like it would be easier to just give up. However, the Bible reminds us that these things that we tell ourselves are not true and it gives us the affirmations that we need. Let these verses give you the power and motivation that you're lacking.

1. Proverbs 31:25

"She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future."

2. Psalm 46:5

"God is within her, she will not fall."

3. Luke 1:45

"Blessed is she who believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her."

4. Proverbs 31:17

"She is energetic and strong, a hard worker."

5. Psalm 28:7

"The Lord is my strength and my shield."

6. Proverbs 11:16

"A gracious woman gains respect, but ruthless men gain only wealth."

7. Joshua 1:9

"Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

8. Proverbs 31:30

"Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised."

9. 1 Corinthians 15:10

"By the grace of God, I am what I am."

10. Proverbs 31:26

"When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness."

11. Psalm 139:14

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made."

12. 1 Peter 3:3-4

"Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God."

13. Colossians 2:10

"And in Christ you have been brought to fullness."

14. 2 Timothy 1:7

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline."

15. Jeremiah 29:11

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'"

16. Exodus 14:14

"The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm."

17. Song of Songs 4:7

"You are altogether beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way."

Next time you're feeling discouraged or weak, come back to these verses and use them to give you the strength and power that you need to conquer your battles.

8 Old Katelyn Tarver Songs You Probably Haven't Heard

None of her new songs will ever go as hard as "Chasing Echoes" and that's a fact.

Years ago, I found (through iTunes recommendations) a pretty cool female artist. Later found out she was on "Big Time Rush", and then I found out she had some new songs out. I decided to give her new songs a listen, and they're good. However, I prefer some of her older stuff, which sadly isn't on Spotify. Fortunately, YouTube exists, and I'm here to share the best ones.


1. "Wonderful Crazy"

This is just a fun, upbeat song for when you're having a good day. Would recommend playing in your car with the windows rolled down.

2. "Rain"

I have a very specific memory of a time when this song blessed my life, but for all intents and purposes, it is a beautiful and happy song.

3. "I'll Make It Real"

This is a beautiful song with a wonderful message about staying true to yourself. I used to listen to it on the way to school every day my senior year of high school.

4. "Something In Me"

Featured in the greatest show of all time, "South of Nowhere" season 1 episode 6. A very relatable breakup mood.

5. "Love Alone"

This is definitely the second-hardest-hitting song she's ever released. The fact that this is not on Spotify or even iTunes anymore is just not fair.

6. "Favorite Girl"

This one's cute and upbeat, a definite crush mood. Not on the same level as "Love Alone", but it's still underrated.

7. "Closer to My Heart"

Another cute love song. I'll tie it with "Everything" for cutest love song on her first album. Highly recommend both.

8. "Chasing Echoes"

Facts are facts and the facts are that Katelyn Tarver's new stuff could never go as hard as "Chasing Echoes". I can't even begin to explain how deeply these lyrics cut through me when I was fifteen. Even now, this song can take me all the way back. She is robbing us by not making this available on streaming services (or even to purchase). Katelyn, bring this song back, I am begging you.

Anyway, I'm still enjoying the new stuff and am excited to see what's next.
