The five nominees at this year's Academy Awards were Leonardo DiCaprio for "The Revenant," Matt Damon for "The Martian," Bryan Cranston for "Trumbo," Eddie Redmayne for "The Danish Girl," and Michael Fassbender for "Steve Jobs." DiCaprio was the lead frontrunner, but Damon and Cranston were the favorites for an upset.

Leonardo Dicaprio won for his portrayal of Hugh Glass in the historical drama "The Revenant." This is his first Oscar win, but the world has been rooting for him to win ever since his first nomination in 1993. He also took home the Best Actor in a Drama award at the Golden Globes and Best Actor at the SAG Awards.
