The king is dead.

R.I.P. Leo Deserves An Oscar

In every lifetime, we see how the powerful can rise so high only to fall so far. In that same vein, we also see a meme life-cycle time and time again on the Internet. One joke, however, has survived the meme-eat-meme world, refusing to fluctuate despite everyone's sanity. This meme stood strong for over two decades.

Which colloquial Internet joke are we talking about? "Leo deserves an Oscar," of course.

Ever since Leonardo DiCaprio with first nominated for Best Actor 22 years ago, fan girls and boys alike have been eagerly waiting to see this beautiful, versatile actor accept the prize he deserves.

Leo was nominated for Best Actor six times before finally claiming that rightful Oscar on Sunday, February 28, 2016. But up until then, from "The Aviator" to "Wolf of Wall Street," Leo had to pine...


Only to be let down once again by the Academy. Leaving him no choice but to harbor dangerous alternatives.

But now, as Leo goes home with that tiny golden man he has long for, ached for for so long, we must come to terms with the end of an era.

While some of the greats gradually fade into oblivion and placed on a pedestal of gratitude, "Leo deserves an Oscar" has dropped out of the Internet life cycle faster than someone on the wrong end of the Titanic when it split in half.

Through every The Dress, dabbing and "on fleek," "Leo deserves an Oscar" stood strong. But we can no longer mock the Academy and praise Leo's extremely talented body, I mean acting chops.

"Leo deserves an Oscar" is officially no longer funny. You cannot use them anymore or you will face ridicule.

In fact, as of right now they've been dead for almost 12 hours. Just by using them in this article I am officially less cool than everyone else because I am still using "Leo deserves an Oscar" memes but that's OK. I am willing to make this sacrifice in order to prevent anyone else from trying to use a "Leo deserving an Oscar" gif in another conversation from now until the end of time.

But that's life, and the sad truth of the matter is when you want something bad enough a lot of times you have to give up something that you care just as much about. So while I'm sure the entire country, nay, the world is celebrating Leo's Oscar win, it is time to to say goodbye, once and for all, to "Leo deserves an Oscar."

There, there Leo. After all this time you have your Oscar. You can sleep easy at night, cradling that little golden man in you arms night after night, knowing that no one will ever take that away from you. Hopefully.
