Also, in terms of Leo's acting, I can see what you're saying. However, if you really look at it, that movie had a ton of emotion and serious acting coming out of him. The dude completely immersed himself in the role, put everything on the screen, and was a completely believable character. I think the Oscar should go to him just in terms of the effort, grit, and dedication he put toward that role.
If a movie is going to be 2 1/2 hrs+ it's got to blow my mind if I'm going to put in the time to watch it again. Also, that length of movie should (for me) have elements in it that aren't caught on the first viewing. A perfect example of the type of film that I could watch over and over is Interstellar.
I'm not at all saying it was a bad film because it's not. It was fantastic but it was a pretty straight forward, cut and dried, revenge film.
I'll agree that Leo expressed emotional and physical pain and rage perfectly, but I see him putting in the same amount of effort to express emotion, pain, glory, death, etc. in all of his films. In every single film Leonardo DiCaprio does, he gives it 110%.
