In this film, he played “Hugh Glass” the role as a man living in the frontier region. DiCaprio was the favourite star regarding bookies perception. The role of “Huge Glass” was like a ‘fur trapper’, ‘fur trader’, ‘hunter’ as well as ‘explorer’ – all the way fighting for his life, brought him the 6th Oscar nomination. Many people considered it as his best ever performance.

With this nomination, his competitors were Matt Damon for film “The Martian”, Bryan Cranston for his play in “Trumbo”, Michael Fassbender for his film “Steve Jobs” and Eddie Redmayne for his role as a transgender artist in the film “The Danish Girl”.
