Leonardo DiCaprio has collaborated with Martin Scorsese in four of the director’s last five films (Shutter Island, The Departed, The Aviator, and Gangs of New York).
Of those films, three were nominated for Best Picture and Best Director (The Departed – which took home both statues – The Aviator, and Gangs of New York).
