Best Dressed: Leonardo DiCaprio
Mostly it’s the status. To sit next to Martin Scorsese, the legendary director’s current muse, and to stand with Robert DeNiro to present his award, the two flanking a Hollywood visionary as he’s honoured by the industry, on a night when the other director who turned him into a household teenybop superstar took home the big prize. Leo did nothing to mask his fontrum during James Cameron’s Give It Up For Yourselves cheese, and before that – did you see? – he stayed seated as Cameron came over to HIS table to pay respects to Marty, because while Titanic certainly got him started, Leo D undoubtedly earned the rest. With good decisions, with great acting, with great strategy, and with smart connections. He is the standard. You think a blockbuster gift card is an automatic? Please. See Orlando Bloom if you want the flipside.
Leo looked so handsome last night. SO handsome. But that 30 second promo for Shutter Island at the end of Marty’s montage was too much. Dumb.
