Leonardo DiCaprio to Be Honored By SAG Foundation

He'll receive the Actors Inspiration Award at a Nov. 5 event.

Five-time Oscar nominee Leonardo DiCaprio will be honored by the Screen Actors Guild Foundation, it was announced Thursday. The actor, who could be in the thick of the Oscar conversation later this year for his largely silent performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “The Revenant,” will receive the organization’s “Actors Inspiration Award” at a Nov. 5 event in Los Angeles.

The honor is meant to highlight his career achievements on the screen (he has eight SAG nominations to go along with his five Oscar nods), but also recognizes his philanthropic work as chairman of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, aimed at protecting biodiversity and conserving the world’s oceans and forests and bringing an end to climate change.

“It is an honor to be recognized by the SAG Foundation, a group which does so much to support, sustain, and educate my fellow actors and give back to the entertainment industry, as well as the work it has done to advance children’s literacy,” DiCaprio said. “As the SAG Foundation moves into its next 30 years, I’m proud to be a continuing supporter and contributor to its legacy and its future.”

DiCaprio picked up Academy Award nominations for his work in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,” “The Aviator,” “Blood Diamond” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” He was also nominated as producer of “The Wolf of Wall Street” in the best picture category.
