Leonard DiCaprio, who has waited almost 30 years and through 6 nominations, has lost his Oscar at an after party.

‘I put it down for 30 seconds to take a photograph with some amazing people, and then I looked back round and it was gone. I’m still very much upset about the whole thing and apparently they don’t have any spares.’

Reports that Bryan Cranston and a woman in a dress were seen running off with the Oscar are said to be rumours, as Eddie Redmayne wasn’t there at the time.

Leo is said to have wandered off in search of the Oscar, with his agent saying that this is in no way a set up for his next film.
