Despite being one of Hollywood’s biggest stars for nearly two decades, there is one career milestone that continues to elude Leonardo DiCaprio: an Academy Award. First nominated for an Oscar as a teenager, DiCaprio has struck out all four times he’s been up for the coveted trophy, making him perhaps the most conspicuously snubbed actor of his generation. Movies like “Revolutionary Road” and “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” showcase just a few examples of his work that failed to bring home the gold—or, in many cases, even earn him an Oscar nomination.
WHAT’S EATING GILBERT GRAPE?
In honor of the upcoming season of RECTIFY, we’re spotlighting siblings in movies and T.V. From brothers and sisters who make our hearts melt (like Gilbert and Arnie in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?) to relatives who strengthen their kinship by fighting crime (The Boondock Saints), here are ten of the greatest.
It’s a dream pairing, one that’s almost hard to believe hasn’t happened before. Leading man Johnny Depp will return to his indie roots (WHAT’S EATING GILBERT GRAPE?, ED WOOD, BENNY & JOON) to star in auteur Wes Anderson’s next project, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL.
