The 10 Stages of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar Win, in Leonardo DiCaprio GIFs
Well, guys, it finally happened. Last night Leonardo DiCaprio won the Best Actor Oscar for his performance in The Revenant. And thus a meme that brought us years and years of joy and laughter passed into legend. The Internet was united by the anticipation leading up to the award, as well as the celebration after Leo's name was announced.
So I thought I'd outline the ten stages most of us probably went through during last night's ceremony — before, during and after Leo's win — with Leonardo DiCaprio GIFs to illustrate. There's no way of knowing for sure what Leo's own emotions were, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were similar.
Yay, it's Oscar day! Also known as the day Leonardo DiCaprio wins his first Oscar. I mean, there's really no way he won't win. It's a sure bet.
But what if he doesn't win? What if there's an upset and someone we never expected takes home the prize? WHAT THEN?
Okay, there's no use worrying about it right now. His category isn't until the end of the show. Let's just sit back, relax, and maybe take a nap through all the technical categories.
Ahh, it's almost time for Best Actor! I can't wait to see how the Internet responds when Leo wins! We're so close!
Oh God, it's time. They're about to announce Best Actor. Why am I so stressed? I'm not the one nominated. But my heart is pounding so fast.
You know what, it doesn't matter what happens. It's just an Oscar. If he wins, good for him. If he doesn't, we get to joke about it for at least another year. It's all good. Oh look, they're about to announce it…
HE DID IT! HE WON! GO LEO! THAT RAW BISON LIVER WAS WORTH IT!
This is great. Look how happy everyone is for him. Aww, what a nice moment.
Remember when Leo didn't have an Oscar? It seems like just yesterday. They grow up so fast, don't they?
10. Existential Crisis
It's the morning after the Oscars. Leonardo DiCaprio won. I don't know what to do with myself now. I never thought this would happen. What will we all joke about now? Will I ever laugh again? We just don't know.
