Leo DiCaprio

Leo is the man. Has not put a foot wrong in the last decade and has become one of the most successful leading men in contemporary Hollywood since his revival in 2002. Shouldered against Daniel Day-Lewis, his performance in the disappointing Gangs of New York was greatly overshadowed, but in Catch me if You Can he received a Golden Globe nomination. He received an Oscar nomination for The Aviator (2004), and Blood Diamond (2006) and should have won Best Supporting Actor for The Departed (2006). Following Ridley Scott's Body of Lies, he features in Sam Mendes Revolutionary Road (2008) and receives another GG nom. Then in 2010, he has featured in two of the years best films, Shutter Island and now Inception, where the former should give him a fourth Oscar nomination. Impressive!
