Five Reasons LEO Deserves that Freaking Oscar!

Is it just me or does this give you all the feels?

I'm sorry but if you don't love them I don't know if we can be friends. Like, this is my whole teenager-hood (it's a word) in one photo. I still watch Titanic and cry. Are they not just everything?! #KLEO

Sunday was a glorious night as LEO, my beloved, accepted another well-deserved Golden Globe for best actor. Now, the big question remains: WILL HE WIN THAT OSCAR?

If you ask me, and it's my blog so you did, the answer is YES. AND HE DESERVES IT! Here's why:

ONE: IT'S BEEN TOO DAMN LONG.

LEO continues to put out damn good movies. Movies that I see on opening night, in fact because he needs my support and I am a devoted fan. And? Not only does he put out good movies on the reg, he's been acting for 21 years. His acting career can legally drink and he still hasn't won an Oscar. It's time, Academy...you've nominated the guy 5 times and never given him the golden statue. It's time.

TWO: HE PUSHES THE LIMITS FOR HIS JOB.

I'm sorry, but getting mauled by a bear takes some serious acting skills (and balls). I wouldn't want to get my face near a bear, CGI or otherwise.....did I mention LEO also sleeps in dead animal carcasses in the film? And bites the head off a fish? And eats RAW bison liver? Would you do that for your job? I DON'T THINK SO.

THREE: HE HAS HANDLED HIS FIVE PREVIOUS LOSSES WITH DIGNITY AND GRACE.

I only give him props for this because I'm kind of a sore loser. And you know what Matthew McConaughey? You aren't all that and a bag of chips, okay?

FOUR: WHERE IS THE COMPETITION?

Name one movie out right now with an actor that deserves an Oscar more than LEO. You can't. Why? Because Eddie Redmayne won last year and he's the only one I deem worthy of another win, other than LEO. You know another area of life LEO has ZERO competition? IN THE DANCE ARENA. Because look at those sweet moves.

FIVE: LOOK AT HOW GOOD AN OSCAR LOOKS IN HIS HAND YOU GUYS

MAULED BY A FREAKING BEAR.  I REST MY CASE.
