Popular A-lister Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic, The Great Gatsby, The Wolf of Wall Street, Catch Me If You Can), for example, was nominated for seven Oscars over the course of over a decade before he finally took home his first — and only — Academy Award trophy for Best Actor (Motion Picture Drama) for his work in The Revenant (2016).
