    Yeah, nice to see him getting something. I enjoyed watching him in Django. Nice work. Although I doubt he’ll even get nominated, it’s still good to see him trying something a little different. I’m one who thinks he hardly gets his due sometimes. He’s physically limited in some ways — will never be a Daniel Day Lewis, for instance, but, bless him, he never lets that stand in his way much. Kinda like Brad Pitt. Keep up the good work Leo. If you win an oscar too early, it could paint you into a corner, btw.
