Speaking on the role he played in the movie with This Morning, DiCaprio revealed that:

"I do know that it’s completely beyond my control at this point. It’s interesting, because that’s not why you do the work, you know? You do the work because you love making movies and you want to look back and have a filmography that you’re proud of.

"When you’re on set you have to give everything that you possibly can while you’re there but of course being recognised by your peers and all that other stuff that happens is kind of the cherry on the cake so to speak.

"But all the work from me has been done, I’ve done everything I could possibly do, so it’s all up to you to decide whether it's worthy of being seen or talked about or awarded."
