Shocking for all the movie lovers, the news spread through the world media, actor Leonardo DiCaprio was left without a statuette “Oscar”.
Immediately I hasten to reassure everyone – the long-awaited award of the main world film award “Oscar” in the category “Best male role” DiCaprio no one wins. Recall that Leo received an award in 2016 for the film “Survivors”. It a frightening message from Western media was about the figurine, previously owned by a famous Hollywood actor and rebel Marlon Brando – he was the best actor at the Oscars twice: in 1954 for the film “In port”, then in 1972 for her role in “the Godfather.”
The story began with the fact that the statue of Brando was put up for auction, where it is almost 700 thousand dollars was bought by a businessman and friend of DiCaprio Joe Lowe. Then Lowe gave the Oscar to Leonardo, as he, being nominated four times, never got to the coveted trophy – the gift Lowe was hoping to brighten up the prolonged waiting of the actor.
The other day Joe Lowe was charged with massive financial fraud – we are talking about billions, some of which are businessman and has to purchase very expensive things, including the statues. Now presented “Oscar” became a material evidence in the case against Lowe.
