They've conquered the latest movie circuit, so what's next for Hollywood's best and brightest?

Sunday's Academy Awards marked the end of awards season, with stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson walking away with the night's top honors.

How will the decorated victors follow up their groundbreaking work? Here's what the 2016 Oscars' acting and directing honorees have next on their slate.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio finally nabbed an Oscar after five nominations, taking home the Best Actor statuette on Sunday.

DiCaprio's impassioned acceptance speech about climate change is actually closely tied to his new project. According to The Revenant star's rep, DiCaprio is hard at work on an yet-to-be-named environmental documentary.

"They are almost wrapped and headed into edit," the actor's rep tells PEOPLE.

The doc is a part of DiCaprio's multi-year, multi-project deal with Netflix, which was announced last year.

DiCaprio told Parade last month that he's filmed interviews in Paris, Argentina and the Arctic for the film. "It was an eye-opening experience," he told the magazine.

Sources confirmed to Variety last summer that the actor will also star in Marin Scorsese's adaptation of The Devil in the White City as serial killer H.H. Holmes.

Brie Larson is officially stretching past her indie-film beginnings following her Best Actress win for Room.

The actress is currently filming the blockbuster Kong: Skull Island with Tom Hiddleston. The latest installment in the King Kong saga finds Larson as the female heroine.

Due out March 2017, Larson was filming Kong in Queensland, Australia, as recently as two weeks ago.

Other upcoming features include Free Fire, which casts Larson as a woman caught in the crossfire between two Irishmen and a gang in late-1970s Boston, according to Deadline. The movie is expected to be released sometime this year after being acquired by Alchemy in late 2015.

It was also recently announced that the 26-year-old is in talks to replace Jennifer Lawrence in Lionsgate's big-screen adaption of The Glass Castle.

Relative Hollywood newcomer Alicia Vikander solidified herself as Hollywood's new It Girl by winning Best Supporting Actress on Sunday for her role in The Danish Girl.

The 27-year-old Sweden native will star in another period drama called Tulip Fever with fellow Oscar winner Christoph Waltz, due for wide release this year after being screened at Cannes in 2015.

Most notably, Vikander will team up with Matt Damon in the latest Jason Bourne installment, aptly titled Jason Bourne and due out July 29.



Vikander's film with boyfriend Michael Fassbender, The Light Between Oceans, is also set to be released later this year.

Mark Rylance, 56, followed up his Best Supporting Actor win for Bridge of Spies with an Olivier theater award nomination for best actor in Farinelli and the King on Monday.

Rylance, a three-time Tony Award winner, is also currently performing in an off-Broadway production of Nice Fish through March 27 at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn, New York.

On the film front, he'll return to the big screen in Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's classic The BFG as the voice of the giant in July 2016.

Best Director winner Alejandro González Iñárritu has four other Oscars to his name, so it would come as no surprise if stars were scrambling to work with the 52-year-old.

Iñárritu is signed on to write and direct several episodes of Starz's new series The One Percent with Ed Helms, Ed Harris and Hilary Swank, according to Variety. Plans were in place to start shooting the 10-episode debut season by the end of the first half of 2016.
