Sometimes we all just need a brief time-out from the malarkey.

Leonardo DiCaprio Holds His Best Actor Oscar in the Press Room

Such was the case for Best Actor winner Leonardo DiCaprio, who finally took home an Oscar for his role in The Revenant.

Producers thew DiCaprio a bone during his acceptance speech, allowing the environmentalist to speak about his personal causes without the interruption of cut-off music.

"Making The Revenant was about man's relationship to the natural world...climate change is real.  It is happening right now," DiCaprio told the audience.

"It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters or the big corporations but for all people.

"Let us not take our planet for granted," he said, wrapping up his speech.  "I do not take tonight for granted."

After, DiCaprio and his entourage headed to the Governor's Ball, held atop the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

According to the Daily Mail, DiCaprio briefly lost track of his mother, Irmelin Indenbirken inside the party/

"Where's my mom?" he asked, as members of his crew went in search of her.

"I'm so hungry," Dicaprio admitted before eating slice of chicken pizza (OSCAR WINNERS GET HUNGRY, TOO).

The famously private actor is press-shy and doesn't grant many interviews, so it was no surprise that he was overwhelmed by the amount of people and photographers who approached him at the party.

The Daily Mail reports that DiCaprio "begged to be allowed to eat in peace" at his table, which was soon "ringed" so as to let him decompress in peace.

"Leo is asking for a little bit of privacy," one of his security guards told well-wishers.

After the ball, TMZ filmed DiCaprio going into Ago Restaurant and enjoying his vaporizer, as you do.

Apparently one of DiCaprio's crew members assigned to Oscar forgot something important, because someone was seen running after DiCaprio's car with the statue.

Good news, though; a bottle of of alcohol did make it into the vehicle.

Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes

I thought I'd be a marine biologist, because nature and evolution fascinated me... We're all after love, aren't we? Love is what people are hungry for. That's absolutely why I became an actor.

Leonardi DiCaprio

I hope I never get cynical. I think you need youthful energy, excitement, and optimism in life. There is a lot I want to do, and the more cynical you become, the more you sit on your butt and do nothing.
