Leonardo DiCaprio Oscars Speech Was About Climate change
Leonardo Dicaprio won his first ever Oscars Award after 27 years for his role in ‘The Revenant’.
The Revenant Synopsis:
While exploring the uncharted wilderness in 1823, legendary frontiersman Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) sustains injuries from a brutal bear attack. When his hunting team leaves him for dead, Glass must utilize his survival skills to find a way back home to his beloved family. Grief-stricken and fueled by vengeance, Glass treks through the wintry terrain to track down John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), the former confidant who betrayed and abandoned him.
While delivering his speech at the Oscars, Leonardo Dicaprio made a strong statements towards climate change.
“Making “The Revenant” was about man’s relationship to the natural world. A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real. It is happening right now,” DiCaprio continued. “It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.”
