Even if you haven’t seen The Revenant, you likely know two things about it:
Leonardo DiCaprio’s PRETTY good in it and there’s a big badass mama bear involved.
Actually, someone was dressed as the bear in the audience and really liked Chris Rock’s performance, probably.
…and SNL’s Leslie Jones got a crack at DiCaprio as “The Bear” for a minute too. It was awesome.
A few days prior to the awards show, The Hollywood Reporter published a series of cartoons of what it would be like for ‘Revenant’ Bear at the Academy Awards. Illustrator Tim Tomkinson imagined a pretty cool world where the bear was talking hair and makeup with Chewbacca, ordering dinner at Spago, and posing for photos with this year’s Best Actor in a Leading Role.
Considering it was a relatively good night for her movie, I would have liked to see how the Bear tore up the dance floor at the Governor’s Ball after the show.
