It was Leonardo DiCaprio's time in the spotlight last night. The actor finally walked away with his very first Oscar, for Best Actor in The Revenant, after losing out four times previously at the Academy Awards.

The actor was composed as he took to the stage but his Titanic co-star Kate Winslet couldn't hide her teary delight, welling up with emotion as the star received a standing ovation from an audience packed with Hollywood heavyweights:
