Throwback Thursday: Leonardo DiCaprio Received His First Oscar Nod 20 Years Ago

Originally posted 01/16/2014 11:00AM

Leonardo DiCaprio received his fourth Oscar nomination Thursday, for his portrayal of seedy stockbroker Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street.

DiCaprio is no newcomer when it comes to the Academy Awards, though. Twenty years ago, he made his Oscar debut when he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his work in 1993's What's Eating Gilbert Grape?

DiCaprio starred alongside Johnny Depp in the drama, directed by Lasse Hallström. Depp played Gilbert, a teen tasked with keeping his family together as he cares for his morbidly obese mother and his developmentally disabled little brother Arnie (DiCaprio). His responsibilities become onerous when he meets Becky (Juliette Lewis) and sees a chance for love.

The film was DiCaprio's breakout role after his big-screen debut in Critters 3 and a role on beloved '80s sitcom Growing Pains. Even though he was only 19 years old, his portrayal of Arnie was sensitive, complex and full of depth, belying his age, so there was no surprise when he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for the part.

After, "Who are you wearing?," the most important question on the Oscars' red carpet is "Who are you here with?"

Celebrity couples are always alluring. Drench them in tulle, tuxes and accolades, and they become nearly irresistible. But it's a shame that today's biggest stars can't hob knob with the glamorous old guard of Tinseltown ... or can they?

Joaquin Phoenix, Leonardo DiCaprio Hit Up Diddy's Golden Globes Afterparty

Originally posted 01/14/2014 06:00AM

Joaquin Phoenix and Leonardo DiCaprio had plenty in common at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards. Both were nominees for best actor in a comedy or musical; both brought their moms to the event; and both later accepted Diddy's invitation for some after-hours fun.

DiCaprio won for The Wolf of Wall Street, but that didn't seem to dampen Phoenix's spirits, as the actors, both 39, hit up Butter Group's soon-to-open nightclub 1 OAK LA in West Hollywood, where Diddy held court and a deejay spun tunes late into the night – and Diddy's new DeLeon tequila flowed generously.

Phoenix, who was nominated for Her, arrived at about 10:45 p.m. with his mom, his girlfriend Allie Teilz and some other friends. The famously reclusive actor was in a great mood, smiling and laughing throughout the evening and even hitting the dance floor with Teilz. At one point, Teilz threw her arms around him and the two were lovey dovey.
