Does Leo Really Want An Oscar?

I’m beginning to wonder whether Leonardo DiCaprio wants an Oscar. He’s been been nommed five times, always the bridesmaid. Instead of making the liberal-martyr-with-a-death-scene movie that Oscar favors, he keeps being drawn to popcorn fare. And the biopics he does — Steve Jobs may be the next one — aren’t noble enough to win awards. Why doesn’t he do an indie movie or two: that strategy worked for Mr. Matthew Alright Alright, didn’t it? Or has Leo become the new Nicolas “Paycheck” Cage?
