Although we're all delighted that one of the world's most loved actors has finally been given the recognition he deserves, it's time to wave goodbye to the internet's longstanding meme.
For years now, memes of Leonardo DiCaprio and the Oscars that got away have been a staple of life on the internet. But after he picked up a statuette for his role in The Revenant, it was time to give them a fond farewell.

But fear not, guys, you might not be able to copy and paste jokes about having the same amount of Oscars as Leo anymore, but out of death comes life. A new meme has been born.

Let's all just have a moment of silence for all the "Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't have an Oscar" jokes - 1994-2016.
RIP, old sport.
