This is not a drill. Leonardo DiCaprio is finally an Oscar winner.
The actor, who was nominated five times beforehand throughout his long and impressive career but has never won finally ended that streak by winning Best Actor for The Revenant.
And while he kept things humble during his long-awaited speech, and actually used it to discuss climate change, fans on the internet were far less calm and collected.
They literally freaked out.
