The Academy is always accused of snobbery and be always a little ‘distant from the people who actually goes to watch the films, this year instead has listened to popular opinion, certainly this is true for Leonardo DiCaprio, Pride of the Yankees and the social networks, also protagonist of a videogame in which he runs to take the wanted award and that, in our opinion, would have to receive a least a pair, for past productions and labors, starting from What’s Eating Gilbert Grape of the ’93, in which he explained to the world his greatness .
This year, more than ever, the award has been close to those who give the possibility to the cinema to make cinema, the Academy’s choices reflected in many respects the choices of the public, rewarding young people, institutions and finally Leonardo DiCaprio.
