Leonardo Di Caprio has finally won that coveted Oscar he'd been eyeing for the last 24 years.

The actor had been tormented for years, with plenty of near misses. And the internet teased him endlessly.

Remember the memes?

The one where they're all laughing at him:

Leo's nightmares:

While there is a bitter-sweet aftertaste as we say goodbye to the ‘Leo wants an Oscar’ meme, people took to photoshop once more to continue the doomed love affair.

Someone took a photo of him with his Oscar statue at his feet...

...and the internet exploded again:

There's the standard Inception reference:

Keanu is sad(der) without a companion

A weird Leo-sitting-on-the-loo one:

Kanye West memes, because well, Kanye West:

And giving thanks to the bear from the Revenant

Let's continue the mourning period with this memorial video. Leo, it's been fun.
