Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson and 'Spotlight' Win Big At 2016 Oscars

After five nominations, Leonardo DiCaprio finally broke through for his Oscar on Sunday night.

But DiCaprio took his moment in the spotlight to both thank his crew on 'The Revenant' and calling for action against global warming.

"As the history of cinema unfolds, you have forged your way into history these past two years. What an unbelievable talent you are," DiCaprio said of Mexican director Alejandro Inarritu.

"I feel so overwhelmed with gratitude for what happened tonight, but I feel there is a ticking clock out there."

"Climate change is real. It is happening right now," DiCaprio said. "It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters or the big corporations."

Meanwhile, Brie Larson took home the prize for her role in 'Room' after being a heavy favorite following her Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild and British Academy of Film and Television Arts victories.

Larson joined 27-year-old Swede Alicia Vikander, who won supporting honors for 'The Danish Girl', as the youngest acting winners Sunday.

'Spotlight', based on true events recounting the investigative team at the Boston Globe who a scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the Catholic Church, beat out the competition to be crowned Best Picture at the 2016 Oscars.

'The Revenant' had received plenty of critical acclaim and awards but it had fell to 'Spotlight' along with 'The Big Short', 'Bridge of Spies', 'Brooklyn', 'Mad Max: Fury Road', Room and 'The Martian'.
