Since his Oscar-winning turn in The Revenant, DiCaprio has done in-person Deadline interviews for all his awards-season films. Because of Omicron, this one was done by phone. Here, DiCaprio assessed everything from awards season to moviegoing in the age of Covid, and yes, the real danger of global warming for those who missed the symbolism.
Deadline: Compare this awards season to ones you’ve been part of for most of your films.
Leonardo DiCaprio: Well, it’s been a lot more efficient and a lot easier in a lot of ways. The traveling around for publicity completely stopped.
