Considered to be one of the greatest actors of his generation, Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio celebrates his 46th birthday on Wednesday. With a career that has spanned nearly three decades, he’s delivered some of the most memorable characters and performances, many of which were noticed by the Academy.
With six acting nominations, most recently for last year’s “Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood,” and winning for 2016’s “The Revenant,” DiCaprio shows no signs of slowing down yet. He’s set to re-team with Martin Scorsese on an adaptation of “Killers of the Flower Moon” alongside Robert De Niro, currently set for some time in 2021. We may get a double dose of DiCaprio next year, because he’s also filming “Don’t Look Up” from Oscar-winning writer and director Adam McKay, alongside an all-star cast that includes Meryl Streep, Timothée Chalamet, Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill and Ariana Grande. That will make its bow on Netflix.
Let’s take a look at his 10 best Oscar-worthy performances of his career thus far. Some of these were nominated by the Oscars, some were not.
