Hollywood A-lister Leonardo DiCaprio finally snagged Oscars gold Sunday, 22 years after his first Academy Award nomination -- proving he really is not just a pretty face.DiCaprio bested a tough field -- fellow nominees were Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon, Michael Fassbender and last year's winner Eddie Redmayne.The victory Sunday only adds to the glow of the life of Leo, which is the stuff of Hollywood films.Then came the epic romance "Titanic" (1997), in which director James Cameron made DiCaprio the lead, co-starring with Kate Winslet.The film secured 14 nominations and 11 wins, but no nod for DiCaprio. That was reflected by roles in films as diverse as Woody Allen's 1998 comedy "Celebrity" and Randall Wallace's period drama "The Man in the Iron Mask".He teamed up again with Scorsese to portray eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes in 2004's "The Aviator". Yet still he missed out on an Oscar, losing to Jamie Foxx in "Ray".
