Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio this year is an Oscar nominee for lead actor in "The Wolf of Wall Street." The tale of greed is also in the running for best picture. DiCaprio was nominated for a lead actor Oscar in 2007 for "Blood Diamond," but lost to Forest Whitaker in "The Last King of Scotland." DiCaprio received another lead actor Oscar nod in 2005 for "The Aviator," but was bested by Jamie Foxx in "Ray." And as early as 1994, DiCaprio was nominated for a supporting actor Oscar for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," though it was Tommy Lee Jones who took home the Oscar that year for "The Fugitive."Kirk McKoy / Los Angeles Times
