Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach lauded Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio for his Best Actor win in the 88th Academy Awards for his performance in “The Revenant.”


In a post on the Miss Universe Facebook page, Wurtzbach said: “You deserved it! Leonardo DiCaprio takes the Oscar for Actor in a Leading Role! ‪#‎Crowned -Pia”


The photo showed DiCaprio wearing the bejeweled Miss Universe crown in his Oscars red carpet garb.


Wurtzbach joined netizens in congratulating DiCaprio in his first Oscars win.


In his acceptance speech, the 41-year-old actor urged people to act and counter the threats brought by climate change.


“Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It’s the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together,” said DiCaprio on Sunday (US time).


“Let us not take this planet for granted; I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so much,” he said.


DiCaprio edged out Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon, Michael Fassbender and Eddie Redmayne for the award.


He was previously nominated for five times for an Oscar in “Wolf of Wall Street,” “Blood Diamond,” “The Aviator” and “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” but always came home empty-handed.


In “The Revenant,” DiCaprio played a fur trapper who was attacked by a bear and was left for dead. AJH
