Leonardo Dicaprio Never Won Oscar

By


Leonardo DiCaprio plays a maniacal top cop spanning 50 years?and its based on a true story. He ruled the Federal Bureau of Investigation for decades, nosing around in the private lives of his enemies and friends. Leonardo DiCaprio stars in a Clint Eastwood directed film about the secret life of one of the most powerful men in the United States in the last century in, J. Edgar. The film focuses on those closest to J. Edgar Hoover; His mother Annie Hoover (Judi Dench); his secretary, Helen Gandy (Naomi Watts); and FBI associate director and Hoover companion Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer). DiCaprio as an aging Hoover was a stretch at times. I had a hard time buying the 37 year old DiCaprio as the old J. Edgar. That aside, the movie does a great job of revealing the top cop’s obsession with commies and radicals. J. Edgar Hoover popularized fingerprinting, thus leading the way for the CSI folks of today. Director Clint Eastwood points out though, Hoover never missed an opportunity to pat himself on the back. Always searching for the spotlight, while having many secrets of his own. The best thing about this film is the relationship that revolved between Hoover and his longtime companion Clyde Tolson. Their relationship has historically never been really clear. The film’s version sticks with the fact. The two were never married, worked side by side for decades, and never missed a meal together?and don’t you miss this movie. It will certainly be an Oscar contender on so many levels. DiCaprio?oscar ? Don’t know about that. The Flick-o-Meter gives J.Edgar four out of five. Solid film about troubled man with too much power. J. Edgar Hoover was a complex guy, full of contradictions. Was he a good guy or a bad guy ? Eastwood is remarkably neutral on this but I don’t know how its going to play out with the viewing audience. Head on over to Facebook, like my page, “TheBrettSide”, and win !

  1. There is NO better actor than Leonardo DiCaprio. He’s bound to get an Oscar
    for either The Great Gatsby or The Wolf of Wall Street.

    this one. But this year his movies werent so great. Unlike 2010.

  3. Leo is a mediocre actor who chooses awful movies to act in. THATS why he
    cant win an Oscar. I would say his last solid performance was in “Total
    Eclipse”, and that was 1995 for god’s sake.

  5. Don’t worry, when Leo’s time comes to win and Oscar it will be a Big and
    Grand Year for him, much like Kate Winslet, 2009 was her year, she won all
    the Awards including the Oscars and 2 Golden Globes in one night.. that is
    something that rarely happens in Hollywood. Leonardo DiCaprio belong to
    this Hollywood Industry, he will eventually win and Oscar one day.

  6. The Academy Awards is waiting for Leo to do a Bigger film than any he has
    done in the past. Then he will win a ‘Well Deserve Oscar Award’. But trust
    me he will get someday.

  8. For me, it’s him and Christian Bale. Top two actors ever. Originally it was
    just DiCaprio, but I recently watched the three Batman movies and “The
    Fighter”, and that added him to the list

  11. Apart from being drop dead gorgeous, yes, Leonardo Dicaprio deserves an
    oscar! Come on, Kate Winslet and Gloria Stuart both recieved them in
    Titanic. Why didn’t he? He made up the love story and without him, their
    could not have been a love story! My husband was upset that the old Rose
    got one and he didn’t! He hated the end scene when she lets out a squeal! I
    really think he deserves one. He’s been in so many awesome movies! Yeah, I
    think there’s something going on, we can’t see! Not fair!!!

  13. im just going to put it out there, Leonardo DiCaprio is the best Actor of
    our generation, with Christian Bale in second….. but with the movies he’s
    done i can see 10+ situations where he should have had an Oscar and he has
    0, something definitely going on behind the scenes.

  14. Leo doesn’t even go to the Awards – neither does Harrison Ford. There is a
    society in Hollywood that those two great actors don’t like.
