Leonardo DiCaprio finally wins an Oscar for his role in 'The Revenant.'

JOHANNESBURG - Leonardo DiCaprio has finally won an Oscar for his role in The Revenant.

He has been nominated four other times and was widely favored to finally win this year.

The award for best director went to Alejandro G Iñárritu also for The Revenant.

He is the first director to take consecutive Oscars since Joseph L. Mankiewicz in 1950-51.

His previous one was for Birdman.

Spotlight won the best picture and it also won best original screenplay.

The film, which took years to research, follows the journalists who in 2002 revealed that church officials had routinely covered up reports that priests had sexually assaulted dozens of children.

The Boston Globe won a Pulitzer prize for its efforts.
