It’s no secret Leonardo DiCaprio is a friend of the environment. He’s been an advocate for years and when the 41-year-old actor finally snagged an Oscar, he used that moment to speaking about climate change.

For 2016 Earth Day, the Revenant actor once again covered the topic during the Paris Agreement for Climate Change Signing at the United Nations on Friday morning in New York City. He’s addressed the international delegates in previous years. I suppose as an UN Ambassador of Peace, it’s most likely part of his mandate.

“Our planet cannot be saved unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground where they belong,” Leo said. Watch his entire speech below.

Time magazine’s annual 100 Most Influential People list celebrates pioneers, titans, artists, leaders, innovators and icons and more. Each person to make the cut is the subject of a short essay written by another notable public figure. In Leonardo DiCaprio’s case, it’s from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

“Leo’s talent is limitless, but his secret has always been pretty simple: he’s real. He does his homework. He knows what he’s talking about. That’s how he takes himself back in time 200 years to create an Oscar-winning, bear-brawling, powerhouse performance in The Revenant.” – John Kerry is the U.S. Secretary of State

Nicki Minaj, Priyanka Chopra, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, Hamilton maestro Lin-Manuel Miranda and International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde all received their own separate covers for the 2016 class.

Other notable names to make the cut this year include Adele, Ronda Rousey, Taraji P. Henson, Caitlyn Jenner, Aziz Ansari, Hillary Clinton, Karlie Kloss, Jordan Spieth, Ariana Grande and Melissa McCarthy to name a few. Check out below all the other covers which were snapped by photographer Ben Hassett.

CBS bestowed James Corden with a special to celebrate a year hosting The Late Late Night Show. The 37-year-old host certainly didn’t drop the ball with his primetime opportunity. I was thoroughly entertained the entire hour.

The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special featured memorable moments from his time as host mixed in with some new footage. However, the main attraction was Jennifer Lopez. The American Idol judge rode along with Corden for an all-new Carpool Karaoke segment.

Naturally, they sang duet on her hits including “On The Floor,” “Jenny From The Block,” “Booty” and “Waiting For Tonight.” When J. Lo gave pointers on how to serve face during the latter, I died. It was sooooo good.

The best segment for me though was when James scrolled through all the famous contacts on Lopez’s phone. Demi Lovato, Bradley Cooper, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Cristiano Ronaldo, Stacy Ferguson a.k.a. Fergie and Iggy Azalea were all there to name a few. When Corden stumbled upon Leondardo DiCaprio’s contact info, he sent him a message. You have to watch the clip to read Leo’s response. Can’t believe he actually replied.

Check out all the fun hijinks below. Even if you watched the special on CBS, the YouTube video contains footage not shown on Tuesday night including J. Lo and Corden coveringLocked Out Of Heaven” by Bruno Mars.

Sorry Ellen DeGeneres, there’s a new Twitter queen in town. Or should I say king.

After being the bridesmaid several times, Leonardo DiCaprio snagged his first ever Academy Award. His long-overdue coronation had the Twitterverse working overdrive.

Reportedly, his win generated an insane 440,000 Tweets per minute, shattering the previous record. Ellen DeGeneres’ infamous star-studded selfie from the 2014 ceremony held the previous benchmark of 255,000 Tweets per minute. Find out Oscar’s second and third most tweeted moments below.

88th Academy Award Nominations Announced

88th-academy-awards-nominations

Nominations for the 88th Annual Academy Awards were announced Thursday morning inside the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills. Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs along with directors Guillermo Del Toro and Ang Lee and actor John Krasinski took turns revealing the nominations.

Leading the pack with 12 nods in all was Alejandro González Iñárritu’s frontier revenge tale, The Revenant. It scored Best Director, Best Picture and Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio to name a few. Nipping at its heels in second place was Mad Max: Fury Road with 10 nods, followed by The Martian and Carol with seven and six respectively.

I’m glad to see that sentimental favorite Sylvester Stallone got noticed for Creed. Having scored another nomination for playing Rocky Balboa is a great story. He could conceivably snag his first Oscar. The original Rocky won Best Picture, but Stallone wasn’t a producer. The categories he was nominated in, Best Actor and Best Screenplay, he didn’t win.

The awards will be handed out on February 28 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, beginning at 7pm EST on ABC. Check out all the nominees below.

It was all about Leonardo DiCaprio at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards. Not just because he won Best Actor Drama or that his film The Revenant slayed the competition. Instead, it was all of his candid moments that got the Internet buzzing.

When Lady Gaga walked towards the stage to accept her Golden Globe, she accidentally bumped into DiCaprio’s chair. His slightly shady reaction was priceless. Naturally, memes popped up immediately. The 41-year-old actor explained his reaction to Entertainment Tonight. Find out below.

Leo also drove the Twitterverse into a frenzy when Kate Winslet and he hugged before a commercial break. The Titanic reunion made millions ecstatic, including Jane Fonda. Check out the hilarious moment below.

As always, the 2016 Golden Globes were a star-studded affair. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association sure love their celebrities. They’re definitely the biggest star f*ckers around ;)Naturally, the organization set up a photobooth to take pics of all the big names in attendance.

Famed photographer duo Inez & Vinoodh snapped stunning black and white photographs of all those who appeared on the stage- both winners and presenters alike. Check out below some of my favorite images of Lady Gaga, Taraji P. Henson and Jennifer Lawrence to name a few.

Heading into the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, Carol lead the pack with five nominations. Sadly, the 50s-set lesbian love story walked away empty-handed, failing to win in any of the categories it was nominated for. The Big Short was also shut out, not able to convert any of its four nods into wins.

The news was quite different for The Revenant. The grizzly drama won three of the four awards it was up for including Best Picture Drama and Best Actor for Leonardo Dicaprio. The Martian also did quite well, taking home two statues.

Over on the television front, Mr. Robot was the sole multiple winner with two- Best Television Series Drama and Best Supporting Performance in a Series for Christian Slater. Lady Gaga beat out Kirsten Dunst for Best Performance in a Miniseries. Check out all the winners below.
