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).

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
