Leonardo DiCaprio is not nervous about whether he will finally win an Oscar - because the hard work of actually shooting the film is over.

The 41-year-old was nominated for a best actor Oscar on Thursday for his lead role in The Revenant. He stars as a frontiersman who survives a bear attack, is left for dead by his own hunting team, and sets off on a gruelling chase across the American West in pursuit of the man who betrayed him.

Despite four previous nominations, he has never taken home the Oscar statuette.

He said: "The one reassuring thing about all this award season stuff is that you have absolutely no control over the outcome. You've done the work."
