    The world did. That's why he's often discredited.

    Plenty times he's been subtle and put on a clinic. The Aviator is one instance.

    And Tom Hardy simply doesn't have the body of work. And I'm a huge fan. Have been since he did Wuthering Heights with BBC.

    haha probably his worst to date.

    I guess I first saw him in BBC's Oliver. Randomly came upon that forever ago.

    I think he WAS discredited but after a lot of his successful movies over the last decade, that image has been somewhat erased. Even if this group voting is just a small sample size, he's winning more than 2:1 over jack Nicholson.

    Part of that is that Nicholson has had an entire career before DiCaprio ever really started, but of the movies I've seen, The Departed is one of the best for Nicholson which just happened to have a good Dicaprio in it too.

    Yeah, true. He's also not near as "pretty" as he once was, either. Helps a bit.

    Makes dudes ease up on the criticism a bit.
