Would be meaningful to win Oscar: DiCaprio on 'The Wolf...'

Los Angeles, Jan 3 : Actor Leonardo DiCaprio says he wants his latest movie "The Wolf of Wall Street" to receive awards and recognition galore. Winning an Oscar, he says, would be meaningful.


"Of course it would be meaningful (to win an Oscar). I think everyone wants to be recognised by their peers, absolutely, without question. But the truth of the matter is, you learn very quickly you have absolutely no control of what critics or audiences are going to think," hollywoodreporter.com quoted the 39-year-old as saying.

"You really just have to do everything you can to make the best film. That's the one thing that I do know," he added.

DiCaprio has previously received Oscar nominations for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape", "The Aviator" and "Blood Diamond", but he especially wants "The Wolf Of Wall Street" to get recognition as he feels the Martin Scorsese-directed movie helped him evolve.

"I would love for this film, on all fronts, to get some attention because there's only been two films in my entire career that I've really developed myself, really championed to get financed and got a director involved with, and that's been 'The Aviator' and this.

"And so, in a lot of ways - and I hate to use the term - those two are my 'babies'," he said.

"Those were the films that I really did everything I possibly could to get made in the right way. And I think that they're very difficult movies to pull off, especially with this one ... a film that opens yourself and the movie up to a lot of criticism. So to get any kind of recognition would be amazing for this, absolutely," added the "Titanic" star.
